It's too dull and hackneyed for the satirical spoof it intends to be, and the actors and director miss the charm and humor of the old Doris Day movies by a margin so wide it doesn't add up to a respectful homage, either.
While you were hypnotized by the bossa nova and Renee Zellweger's form-fitting pink Givenchy and the rat-a-tat dialogue of the gender wars, the writers and the director tricked you into caring about the plot.
Unlike Day and Hudson, who inhabited their characters with an effortless charm, Zellweger and McGregor appear to be straining for effect, conveying little of the natural sexiness of their predecessors.
