Speaking of those Fabulous 60's . . . . This Fool found himself altogether too amused over the weekend by Down With Love, director Peyton Reed's pitch perfect rendering of what would once have been a Doris Day/Rock Hudson comic romance. It's arch, it's hip, it's been drinking a lot of coffee and very good martinis, it thinks that human folly is just the most amusing thing and that love will find a way, and it carries not a shred of irony about its person. Sophisticates will scoff, but I'm still grinning just thinking about it. A guilty pleasure with extra gilt, if that's what you're in the mood for.
