Down With Love

By

Source: Catholic News Service

Retro-stylish romantic comedy about a sassy author (Renee Zellweger) of a best-selling who-needs-men manual charmed into falling in love by a playboy ace journalist (Ewan McGregor), as part of his underhanded scheme to debunk her man-hating manifesto and expose her as a fraud. Borrowing heavily from '60s-era Doris Day-Rock Hudson collaborations and chock full of whip-smart double entendres, director Peyton Reed offers a ringside view of a jazzy battle of the sexes, but the film's questionable view of gender roles and suggestion that promiscuity is liberating is a bit off-putting. Implied sexual situations, racy double entendres and sexually suggestive humor, as well as a misguided attitude toward sexual intimacy. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.

Florian: American Catholic Blog The French novelist Leon Bloy once said that there is only one tragedy in life: not to be a saint. It may be that God permits some suffering as the only way to wake someone from a dream of self-sufficiency and illusory happiness.
