down with love

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE those old Doris Day/Rock Hudson love and marriage romps. Here we revisit the formula tweaked to the max with utterly boss period scenery, bulging innuendo aplenty and wardrobe Doris’d die for. Could there BE more color on the screen in 101 minutes? I think not. Renee Zellweger doesn’t do the Humph ‘n Stomp-off like Doris; instead she employs this sultry, stubborn little pout that’s irresistible. And her character, Barbara Novak, puts the entire Man’s World of 1962 Manhattan in its place using women’s wiles amped up on trigonometry. Bravo! [usa, 1962] ~ reviewed by nancy brown
