I didn't really expect a whole lot out of this movie and I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was charming and sweet and certainly memorable. The scenery is definitely breathtaking and I enjoyed the interplay between the main actors. Overall, the movie was a nice balance of humour and some real shining moments of truth that might make you reflect upon your own life and the people in it.

Sometimes actors who contain a high amount of pure charisma and charm can single-handedly elevate sub-par material through their own natural appeal. This very nearly happens in Leap Year, which is just about the most cliche romantic comedy you could dream up. It would seem stale and tired in the '20s. The charm here comes courtesy of not Amy Adams, but Matthew Goode. Sure, Adams is fine if a little bland with her take on the character, but Goode's appealingly sardonic nature is what makes this film work. He doesn't push too hard with the brusque personality, but makes his character well-rounded and oh so attractive. Sure, the motions these two go through are everything you think when reading that short plot summary, but Goode makes it all at least marginally worthwhile. Alright, Adams does fine too.

A fun, fluffy movie. Great for a kick back and relax night. Nothing difficult, good story and acting. Relax and enjoy it.

Good light romantic comedy.
The first part is kind of lame, but the film becomes more enjoyable once the female character arrives in Ireland. Nice landscapes and a happy end.

Any movie with Matthew Goode makes me give this movie half of another star. The rest is typical gender stereotyping layered on too thick. Just propose it's a new century, marriage will work regardless of who drops down on their knee.
