Genre(s): Romantic Comedy
In New York City in 1962, popular feminist author Barbara Novak is confident she has the answers to what women really need. Her ultimate goal is for women to declare "down with love" and embrace a masculine lifestyle, dismissing men for use beyond casual sex. Catcher Block is a clever journalist intent on stopping Barbara's crusade as his abundant charm is no longer appreciated by this new breed of woman. The plan is for Catcher to pose as a naive astronaut, win her love and thereby disprove her current theories. Circumstances become increasingly complicated as both Barbara and Catcher realize they may have met their match. Filled with double entendres, this satire of early 1960's flirty comedies has been updated with a few modern additions.
