    a '50's romantic comedy for the new millenium

    If you were dragged to the theater by your parents in the late '50s, early 60s to see the any Rock Hudson/Doris Day movie...AND LIKED THEM, then you will enjoy this romantic comedy rip-off, off all the RH/DD movies, mostly "Pillow Talk." The movie even features regular Tony Randall in a brief cameo. Renee is NO Doris, but Ewan is a fairly good Rock. It is a light fluff story, with over the top late 50s/early 60s decor, clothing and design. Visually stunning, story line predicable and fun...just fun, fun, fun. However, if you have a feeling for the original, do get the 3 disc Rock/Doris set with all the movies. It is worth it!

    One of the most fun movies ever!

    This movie is a cute and funny homage to the Doris Day/Rock Hudson movies of the early 1960s but has been updated with modern sensibilities. The dialog is clever and funny. The costumes and set design are to die for and will make any interior design buff/fashionista drool all over themselves. The music is perfect for the time period and the song used in the closing credits, as sung by MacGregor and Zellweger, is just the perfect finishing touch to this awesome romantic comedy.

    Up With This Movie!

    This film is functionally a remake of 1964¿s ¿Sex and The Single Girl¿ given a special ¿Austin Powers¿ spin, and updated to make it a little more Politically Correct. There are funny nods to the old Doris Day/Rock Hudson film tradition, and all the cultural touchstones for the period are spot-on. The movie is funny, appealing, and a great story with a nice, solid plot twist near the end. SPECIAL NOTE: Men, watch this film! Despite the lack of explosions and gunfire, the movie is really very funny. Better still, Renée Zellweger is a bombshell.

    ''Austin Powers'' meets ''When Harry Met Sally''

    This movie is cute and fun. It continuously makes fun of itself, the whole genre, and that fossy 60's style. The music score is perfect
