Excerpt: I was a bit hesitant when my handy price tracker notified me that this was $10. It has an average 6.0 rating on IMDb and a harrowing 21% on RT. With these factors in mind, I decided to add "Leap Year" to my cart anyway. I agree with some that the script was weak, but it did have its moments. The visuals are the most astonishing thing about the film. This was filmed on location in Ireland and that coastline is simply breathtaking.
Summary: Think of the dumbest Jennifer Aniston "romantic comedy" you've seen. This one is dumber. What a waste of the lovely Amy Adams -- with unfunny slapstick, a senseless plot and no chemistry at all between the leads. I wasn't expecting much, but thought that a little Irish scenery might at least make it somewhat enjoyable. I was wrong.
Excerpt: You people are all crazy - this movie just sucked. Good actors such as Adams and Goode can't save an awful, boring story. Kenneth Brown was exactly right. If you don't like this movie, it does not mean that you don't like romantic films. Just an awful written film.
Summary: This movie's premise has holes large enough to push an Irish pub through, but there are three elements that make it worthwhile: 1) Matthew Goode never overplays the part he's been dealt 2) The cliffs and countryside of Ireland make for magnificent viewing, and 3) Amy Adams' spirit has enough fizz to energize this tired chick flick and render it quite enjoyable.
Summary: My girlfriend made me see this with her, and it was awful. Extremely predictable, and just plain dumb. I'm tired of the movies with the two characters hate each other and within a few days are madly in love. STOP IT!!
Summary: You know what Leap Year is another generic entry into the romantic comedy genre and you know what I must confess that I enjoyed it. As we all know about in romantic comedies is that woman are very successful and they are hungry to get married and finding the right one. As well as trying to desperately doing some antics to achieve that goal.
