Plot Outline:

The story is about a feminist author who pens a book called 'Down with Love', which calls for women to stop chasing love and to become more like men in regards both the workplace and the bedroom. When the star writer for a men's magazine Catcher Block stands her up for interview several times she uses her new fame to name him as an example of the sort of cad she is rebelling against in her book. He decides that he's going to expose her as a fraud by making her fall in love with him.

The colors were extremely vibrant in the same way that they would be played overly saturated using a faux technicolor technique. Zellweger and McGregor play off of eachother brilliantly and David Hyde Pierce plays the same type of neurotic character that we have c...
