The supporting players, sets, and costumes are so vivid that they make the main characters seem a little bland.

| Original Score: B

It's so faithful that it's mummified and, because the movie has nothing to add to what '60s films already gave us, we begin to wonder what the point is.

It's like a Saturday Night Live sketch on a $60 million budget.

Director Peyton Reed gets the film's look and, in moments, its disingenuous innocence, but you have to wonder what he and the screenwriters, Eve Ahlert and Dennis Drake, thought they were parodying.

If you want to experience nostalgia, rent Pillow Talk--it does a much better job.

If you're looking for some 21st century screwball comedy drenched in campy attitude and gaudy duds, you're pretty much primed for the inane but spirited excesses of Down With Love.

The same kind of artless, airless studio product as the Hudson/Day films and will no doubt age just as badly.

Down with Love doesn't even possess the dippy level of misunderstood sexual mischievousness so pronounced in a predictably heavy-handed '70s double-entendre Three's Company rerun.

Takes a creative concept and never knows how to handle it with a less than top-notch script and terrible delivery.

Reminded me of a handsome, expensively dressed person with bad manners and no real sense of style.

Zellweger and McGregor have only their dimpled cuteness to get them through this movie, which you sense, at least from their mugging, that they believe is enough. It isn't.

like a strawberry shortcake made with frozen fruit and artificial sweetener - it doesn't look quite right and has a plastic aftertaste, but it's better than no dessert at all.

All artifice, so little art. Does this film have anything new to offer? If not, why bother?

What starts as freshly spun cotton candy ends as something pink, sticky and indigestible.

An irritation, more fizzle than sizzle.

Feels less antic than frantic, semi-glossing over a 40-year-old cultural dust-bunny to create soggy, ersatz fluff.

Down With Love's affection is tainted with condescension, and the movie becomes a charade of winks and nudges.

Reed never quite decides if his film is an homage to the pre-ratings code ingenuity and fabulous '50s design of those films or a parody of their dated silliness.
