Down with Love (2003) is a romantic comedy film directed by Peyton Reed and written by Eve Ahlert, and starring Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor.

The film also featured David Hyde Pierce, Sarah Paulson, Rachel Dratch and Jeri Ryan in supporting roles. Tony Randall, who was frequently featured in Day-Hudson films, appears in a small role as the owner of Novak’s publishing house. It went on to be his final performance. The film was released in the United States on 9 May 2003.

Plot: Barbara Novak has just come down from Maine to New York after writing a book called Down With Love. The book instructs women to have sex the way a man does, and to detach oneself from love completely. Catcher Block is a successful journalist tapped to write a cover story on Novak. He blows her off at every opportunity to cuddle with flight attendants. However, when Novak’s book is a complete success, Catcher finds himself being blown off by her! So he starts to write an expose and disguises himself as a naive astronaut named Zip Martin. But he can’t imagine what happens next!
