Hilarious spoof on '60s comedies for mature 14+.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Director Peyton Reed keeps this fizzy comedy in an alluringly goofy tizzy from start to finish. This is undoubtedly the skillful battle-of-the-sexes laugher Rock Hudson and Doris Day would have made were they able to naughtily quip about bitches and hose.

While the movie definitely has tongue lodged firmly in its postmodern cheek, every detail looks and feels authentic.

... as light, cheap, and ultimately as insubstantial as cotton candy. And yet, it inadvertently strikes some resonant chords.

Bright and very funny... manages to recreate a filmmaking style that was practically a parody of itself in the first place.

Como esforço saudosista em recriar as ingênuas comédias românticas dos anos 60, o filme é bem-sucedido - mas não se destaca muito em seus outros aspectos.
| Original Score: 3/5

It works so hard at being so silly that silly seems smart, making Down With Love simply lovely.

My only complaint? 'Down with Love' should have been a musical.

The ensemble's comedic timing is impeccable.

Like the old films it mimics, Down With Love plays with sexual double entendres but never, ever shows any hints of actual sex.

Beneath the wingtips, pointy shoes and '50s sexual politics...Down with Love is light, airy and fun - almost to the level of cheap laughs. It's all surface spit and polish.

Down with Love is animated and diverting...[but] nonetheless, there's the sense that no one quite believes in what they're doing.

McGregor and Zellweger obviously relish playing these roles, and their gusto is infectious.

It's no small task to make a picture this ambitious and detailed feel like anything but hard work. Director Peyton Reed delivers again...

'Divertida, encantadora, nostálgica y deslumbrante. Una verdadera delicia que no se pueden perder.'
