TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Looks great, but Zellweger and McGregor have no chemistry together, and the self-satisfied, knowing tone grates.

I think it compares favorably with Pillow Talk and Lover Come Back in its well-timed gags and verbal dexterity.

After 10 minutes of getting poked in the ribs with every shot, I thought, 'Is it going to be like this for 90 minutes?'

We want to love it, but like a Rock Hudson rake, we keep finding fault in its allure. We want to hate it, but like Doris Day, we finally can't say no.

I love this film.

May 19, 2003

This pitch-perfect imitation of a Rock Hudson-Doris Day nonsex comedy features Renee Zellweger, Ewan McGregor and a passel of visual delights. But why should we care?

May 17, 2003

It's a cute premise, and several co-stars help keep the fun going for a while.

Audience Reviews for Down With Love

Oh my god Renee was so obnoxious my respect for her plummeted to Nathaniel Rogers levels. The one redeeming quality of this film was Ewan McGregor. He was seriously sexy.

I loved the outfits and I love Ewan McGregor. The twist was silly and the scene where it was all "revealed" was kind of weird.
