Barbara Novak (Zellweger) hits New York City with her new book Down With Love , a pre-feminist manifesto on saying “no” to love and “yes” to career, empowerment – and sex. As Barbara’s revolutionary tome rockets to the top of best-seller charts, she becomes the target of ace journalist Catcher “Catch” Block (McGregor), ladies’ man / man’s man / man about town, who is determined to take her down.

Catch’s best friend and boss, the neurotic and lovesick Peter McMannus (Pierce), tries to rein in his star writer, while haplessly pursuing the object of his affections, Vikki Hiller (Paulson), Barbara’s brilliant and feisty editor. Vikki plays tough in a man’s world, which includes her old-style chauvinist boss, Theodore Banner (Randall).
