Down With Love | 2003
Barbara hits 1962 New York City with her new book, "Down With Love," a pre-feminist manifesto saying "no" to love and "yes" to career, empowerment--and sex. As Barbara's revolutionary tome rockets to the top of the best-seller charts, she becomes the target of ace journalist Catcher "Catch" Block, ladies' man/ man's man/ man about the town, who is determined to take her down. Catch's best friend and boss, the neurotic and lovesick Peter McMannus, tries to rein in his star writer, while haplessly pursuing the object of his affections, Vicki Hiller, Barbara's brilliant and feisty editor. Vicki plays tough in a man's world, which includes her old style chauvinist boss, Theodore Banner.
