Story


DOWN WITH LOVE is an old-fashioned romantic comedy with a twist, starring "Chicago's Oscar(R) nominated Renee Zellweger and "Moulin Rouge's" Ewan McGregor. Putting a hip spin on the golden age of the classic Rock Hudson-Doris Day comedies, the film is the story of a spark-filled collision between a woman who has sworn off love and a ladies' man who thinks he doesn't need love.

Barbara Novak (Renee Zellweger) hits New York City with her new book DOWN WITH LOVE, a pre-feminist manifesto on saying "No" to love and "Yes" to carrer, empowerment - and sex. As Barbara's revolutionary tome rockets to the top of the bestseller chart, she becomes the target of ace journalist Catcher "Catch" Block (Ewan McGregor), ladies' man / man's man/ man about town, who is determined to take her down.

Catch's best friend and boss, the neurotic and lovesick Peter McMannus (David Hyde Pierce), tries to rein in his star writer, while haplessly pursuing the object of his affections, Vikki Hiller (Sarah Paulson), Barbara's brilliant and feisty editor. Vikki plays tough in a man's world, which includes her old-style chauvinist boss, Theodore Banner (Tony Randall).
