New Ewan McGregor/Renee Zellweger movie... Has anyone seen it, or planning to see it? Any thoughts?

I'm going to see it - especially since Ewan is in it

But my local theater isn't showing it this week, because they have that Matrix thing on SIX screens

I read an interesting article today about the costumes-they aren't vintage, they were all created especially for the movie. The reviewer gave it three stars out of four, but wasn't too keen on Renee's performance for some reason..

It looks so different from anything that's out there right now, and I try to see movies like that.

The movie is not on my movie going radar. And my wife has no interest - so that pretty much says it all.

I too am interested in it. I love old movies and this seems to be a take on them. And Ewan McGregor.

I'm not a fan of either of the two leads, but I suppose it'd be a nice way to spend a weekend.

I saw it today and it pretty much fulfilled all my expectations. First, I love all the Doris Day movies Down With Love was inspired by and it was so fun to see the clothes and the houses and all that. Ewan is fabulous, he is so adorable and cheeky and does everything with this winking, tongue-in-cheek thing. Renee is not fabulous, she's trying too hard to be cute and sexy yet demure, her speaking voice is too breathy and she does this weird swishy walk thing that's really annoying. The story has a few holes and there's this one way too long, over-the-top exposition scene, but overall it's cute and not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. David Hyde Pierce is great in all his scenes, must give him props for stepping into Tony Randall's awkward shoes. Oh, and Ewan's shirtless and in boxers quite a bit, so that's a definite plus. Renee's and Sarah Paulson's clothes are too die for, wish Renee would stop starving herself though (that's probably a discussion for another time, another thread).
