I like “Leap Year” and wish it (and its kind) would come more often!

 

Hubby and I went out for dinner last night for his birthday and then on the spur of the moment went to see the movie Leap Year too.

What a great movie that harkens back to the fun romantic comedies of the past!  It is PG and still manages to be romantic, witty and funny.  Surprise, surprise! 

It’s a love story so the plot is very predictable, but the acting was great.  Amy Adams is quickly becoming one of my favorite actresses.  What an expressive face!  And Matthew Goode, the male lead, is perfect.  His Irish brogue, a little bit off-beat looks and his very expressive face make him a perfect balance to the cute, expressive Amy Adams.

At the end of the movie I turned to Hubby and said, “I want to go to Ireland!”  I’ve never had a strong urge to travel abroad, but the scenery in this movie is absolutely beautiful and  really made Ireland come alive for me enough to want to see it myself!

Hubby’s answer was, “Maybe later.  Right now, you’ll have to settle for going to the car.”  Ah, ever the romantic.

So, I highly recommend this movie.  And, if you don’t mind, I’d like for every one of you to go see it, and insist that all your friends and relatives go too!  Because I would love for the people who make movies to see this movie be a big success and consequently decide to make more PG movies that appeal to adults.  How refreshing that would be!

  1. It’s on my list of flicks to see. I knew it the day I saw the preview in the theater.

    The movies ‘Waking Ned Devine’ and ‘The Matchmaker’ also have some of the most striking scenery of Ireland.

    I love a good romantic comedy! Looking forward to this one, though we may catch it on DVD like we usually do. 🙂

    June — I guess I just don’t see the right movies! I haven’t heard of either one of those, but this one really did feel like it was giving us the flavor of Ireland. What a beautiful place!

    Beth — I definitely will buy this DVD too. It was just so refreshing compared to the other “romantic comedies” we’ve gone to recently that were just tacky.

    Thanks for the recommendation, Sandra. I’ve added it to my NetFlix queue.

    have you seen “Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day”. Absolutely delightful and Amy Adams was in that as well.

  7. Sandra says:

    You wont have to ask me twice to see a romantic movie …. or to go to Ireland for that matter too.

  8. Sandra says:

    Well, Tim. I HOPE you like it. I see it not getting very good reviews. BUT, I’m guessing that’s because reviewers think the viewing public want more provocative than this. I hope numbers will prove them wrong!

    Good for you, C! I hope you enjoy it!

    Gigi — Yes, and I LOVED it too! I think she is the modern day Doris Day. If you don’t know who that is, look for some of the movies she made with Rock Hudson. They were delightful in the same way this one is.

    Sandra — Great! I hope you can get further than I did — the parking lot! 🙂
