Описание: Нью-Йорк, 1963 год. Журналист и плейбой Кэтчер Блок (Макгрегор) нравится всем - и мужчинам, и женщинам, словом - всему городу. Однажды на его пути попадается Барбара Новак. Она тоже вроде журналистки - ведет колонку, суть которой - советы феминистки. Неожиданно для себя и вопреки своим любовным правилам Барбара обнаруживает, что испытывает настоящее влечение к молодому наглецу.
Рецензии: Renee Zellwegger is a huge talent. Still sensitive, still scared, she gives every role everything she has. Maybe sometime soon cynicism will deaden her spirit
and she'll take some dreadful dud on just to pay for the villa on the Spanish Riviera. Or maybe not. Maybe not.
Why in the world would anyone attempt to remake Pillow Talk? A classic of time and place, a remake is utterly condemned to fail. One might as well rewrite
Catcher in the Rye. I mean, it's been done, and done brilliantly. Why copy? The obvious answer is, sadly, money. Money and a distressing lack of creativity and courage on the part of the studio.
The sets were properly sixties, Technicolor everything. David Hyde Pierce did a fair imitation of Tony Randall (who gamely appeared in a cameo). The clothes
were reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn's delightful paean to fashion, Funny Face. Oops, I hope I didn't give anyone the idea that Funny Face should be redone.
The audience was light and varied. As the pink The End faded in, half the crowd was immediately up and headed for the exit. Cue music and out pop Zellwegger
and McGregor (truly gifted but poorly cast as Rock Hudson) for a musical finale. The people headed for the exits all stopped dead and riveted. They didn't move a muscle until the final note and the credits were rolling. Down With Love might have worked as a musical. Now there is a reason to remake Pillow Talk,
changed, enhanced, different. Another missed opportunity in a sea of them. Oh well.
