Reviews:  The bright, glossy world of Doris Day and Rock Hudson sex comedies gets a self-aware brush-up in "Down with Love". Pillow-lipped Renée Zellweger ("Chicago") plays Barbara Novak, the author of a bestselling book called "Down with Love" that advises women to focus on their careers and have sex "à la carte"--just like a man would. Determined to prove that Novak is just as vulnerable to love as any woman, dashingly chauvinist magazine writer Catcher Block (ever-charming Ewan McGregor, "Moulin Rouge") pretends to be a courtly astronaut who wouldn't dream of putting his hand on a woman's knee. This piffle of a story seems like nothing more than an excuse for ironic double-entendres and dazzling production design, until a sneaky plot twist suddenly raises the stakes for the movie's end. As he always does, the brilliant David Hyde Pierce ("Frasier") scores the most comic points as Block's fussy editor. "--Bret Fetzer"
