Product Description

Romantic comedy starring Hugh Jackman as a 19th century nobleman who finds love in 21st century New York. Mysteriously transported from 1876 to the dawn of the second millennium, Leopold, Duke of Albany (Jackman), meets market researcher Kate (Meg Ryan) and agrees to serve as a spokesperson for the brand of margarine her company is promoting. A romance soon begins to bloom between the two of them, but time is short, for Leopold will soon need to return to his own time.

From Amazon.co.uk

On its theatrical release, James Mangold's romantic comedy Kate & Leopold was rightly panned for holes in the logic of its time-travel plot. Stewart (Liev Schreiber) finds a portal to 1876 and goes to observe his ancestor Leopold, Duke of Albany (Hugh Jackman) who then follows him back to 2001. Since Leopold is responsible for inventing a key component in lifts, this instantly causes problems.

The gallant Leopold charms, and is charmed by Stewart's ex, Kate (Meg Ryan), a hard-boiled cynical marketing expert who finds in Victorian idealism a corrective to her view of the world. And this is part of the problem with the film--we cannot entirely believe in Meg Ryan as a cynic, or that her problems can be resolved by going off to 1876 to be with her aristocratic sweetie, and much of the film has an oddly sour hostility to its heroine. Hugh Jackman is a delight in the fish-out-of-water scenes and Breckin Meyer is also very funny as Kate's actor brother, who assumes Leopold is a colleague sunk deep into the creation of a part.

On the DVD Kate and Leopold has crisp Dolby 5:1 sound, which allows the very different acoustics of the two historical periods to be neatly contrasted, and is presented in anamorphic 1.85:1 widescreen. We get both the theatrical and Director's cut, both offered with commentary, though the Director's cut audio track is more polemical. The Director's cut restores some expository material and makes more sense. --Roz Kaveney

This movie is an absolute gem.

The story as i'm sure you may know is about a modern day NYC girl and an 18th Century Duke who through a time hole meet up and fall in love.
Yes I know it sounds soppy, yes I know it sounds a little nauseating but this movie is pure joy

The acting and chemistry between Ryan and Jackman is beautiful and you can't help but get so involved in the characters and their lives and loves.

The horseback scene is genius, you'll never be able to hear anyone talking about the Louvre without quivering, and the roof top dinner will become your benchmark for all future dates.

On a lighter side, the joy of the DVD is there are actually a few deleted scenes which somewhat change the story, but due to test screenings and some clever people realising what the scriptwriters didn't, managed to stop this slight, ahem, faux pas from being released in it's original form.

If you're reading this you probably already know about the film; and if not there are plenty of reviews on the 'net detailing people's opinions. Personally, I bought this film based purely on the price at the time (Blockbuster's bargain bin ex-rental for £3) and its two stars - both of whom I really like in other films.
At the time I was very pleased to discover that the ex-rental DVD which listed no extras on the cover was actually pretty packed with bonus material - including a Director's Cut.
Well, I watched the Theatrical Release first and loved it.
A few days later I watched the Director's Cut and was totally underwhelmed - because (MILD SPOILER) the ending is given away within the first few minutes by seeing Kate at Leopold's house. Then, there were other scenes inserted which didn't particularly add to the film's story or charm. So, I never watched the DC again because, in my opinion, the Theatrical version is far superior.
So...that brings us to the Blu-ray. Well, if, like me, you prefer the Theatrical Version of this wonderful film you are going to be very disappointed with this release because it ONLY contains the Director's Cut. Even my ex-rental DVD has the option to watch either version. On this BD you only get one version.
Also, I agree with the previous reviewer, that the picture quality is not particularly great. It's certainly NOT blu-ray quality. Like other Miramax release (see my Teaching Mrs. Tingle review) they seem to have simply stuck a standard definition version of the film onto a blu-ray disc.
The features are all present (except the Theatrical Cut obviously) and there is an upgrade in the sound to a DTS-HD Master 5.1 track which actually is a big improvement.

So, it's a rom-com with a time-travel twist - not an obvious combination but one that pretty much comes off if you don't take it too seriously (it is a rom-com after all).

The premise is that Kate's (Meg Ryan) ex-boyfriend discovers a portal to 1876 and follows his ancestor Leopold (Hugh Jackman) until he in turn follows him back through the portal to 2001. The ex-boyfriend then has an accident and that leaves Leopold free to roam and Kate and her brother nominally in charge of looking after him. You can pretty much tell where this is going, but the jokey detail (poking fun at the different use of language and the different customs in the two eras; the effects of all this time-travel on New York's elevator system) makes this an enjoyable ride.

Hugh Jackman is excellent and totally credible in the role of Leopold and at his best when marvelling at the new world or exposing the failings of those around him. Meg Ryan is predictable Meg Ryan. Her part is not particularly sympathetic but she plays it typically with a selection of faces and clumsy pratfalls for relatively pointless comic effect. Breckin Meyer as her brother is great fun but Liev Screiber as the ex is strangely lifeless.

As the "making of" documentary will tell you, the premise of the film is utterly ridiculous and does not support any kind of scrutiny, but if you accept it for what it is, it's great fun and definitely worth a watch.

Like most romantic comedies this will not shake you to your foundations with the originality of its basic premise. It's boy (from the late nineteenth century) meets girl (from the turn of the twenty-first). But it's nicely done and it looks more convincing than something so obviously daft (he falls through a rip in time and just happens to end up in the flat above the woman of his dreams).
I have to admit that Hugh Jackman is more of a reason to watch it than Meg Ryan (and that's not just from the looks point of view). Her character is cold and has a fairly unattractive personality, whereas his character is warm and charming. In fact you could wish that he ended up with someone more pleasant, really. Hence the three stars rather than perhaps four, romantic films should let us see why each of the characters falls for the other, and while Leopold is irresistible, Kate is definitely not.

Having seen this film unwillingly in the cinema, I was so charmed by it that I bought the DVD and enjoyed it even more watching it with a running commentary from the director. Viewed separately, the "bath" and "speech" scenes that were cut had me rolling on the floor.
It's an easy film to feel superior to if you're not tuned to its wry self-satire. An interesting essay could be written about its use of food as a metaphor for the two contrasting civilizations. Does is romanticize the past? Of course! Is the plot full of holes? Certainly -- but then, so is a Swiss cheese.
