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!
