Down with love

Threat advisory: High - High risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

The ultimate catch has met his match.

An irresistible force - feminist writer Barbara Novak (Renée Zellweger) - becomes involved with an immovable object - womanising journalist Catcher Block (Ewan McGregor) - in this sexy farce and homage to the grand romantic comedies of the 50s and 60s. Process shots of fake backgrounds, hyper-vibrant colour schemes and trademark period fashions and decor add to the fun.
