Reviews

Romantic comedy starring Amy Adams as Anna Brady, a matrimonially-impatient Manhattan interior designer. When her self-absorbed cardiologist boyfriend Jeremy (Adam Scott) repeatedly fails to propose to her, she decides to follow him on a trip to Dublin, where she plans to take advantage of an old Irish custom that allows women to pop the question once in every leap year on 29 February. However, bad weather causes her flight to be diverted via Wales, where she meets rough diamond Irishman Declan (Matthew Goode). The path to true love is soon taking an unexpected and not unwelcome detour.

I first stumbled across this film as a Lovefilm rental but my wife and I loved it so much we immediately bought a copy so we could watch it again and again. I think we have watched it at least five times since then and we have come to appreciate it more and more with repeated viewings.

The casting of Amy Adams and Matthew Goode is sublime. Amy Adams gives her greatest ever performance as initially a spoiled American woman who gradually appreciates what is important in life and comes to appreciate the virtues of her travelling companion. Matthew Goode gives a towering performance as her cynical, sarcastic and patronising bar owner and fellow traveller. My wife is Irish and claims she cannot tell he isn't. Not only does he perfectly emulate the voice but he nails the mannerisms, intonation and personality of the Irish too. Both actors give the performance of their career which helps sweep the viewer along on the journey beside them. Amy is utterly gorgeous and I found myself completely falling in love with her while watching the film.

The writing and dialogue is sparkling, indeed I would go so far as to say that the writing is a work of genius. This film has made us roar with laughter on multiple occasions and later actually cry with its poignancy. If you've ever found yourself slowly falling in love with somebody you shouldn't or found yourself wrestling with unexpected emotions then you will strongly relate to this film. Ally the brilliant writing with cinematography so beautiful I don't think Ireland has ever looked better, then throw in music that is a supreme match for the moment and you don't just have a good film, you have a cinema masterpiece made with care and love by people at the top of their game.

Being Irish myself I was somewhat interested in checking out this rom com with Amy Adams, another excellent reason to see any movie.

So, legend has it that in Ireland a woman can propose to a man on the leap day of a leap year. When an anticipated proposal does not emanate from her doctor boyfriend, Anna hears of this legend and so she has to go to Dublin to propose. Imagine. Dublin.

So, Murphy's Law intervenes, and the flight gets diverted, to Wales, and to make a long story short has to take a really roundabout route to get there in a beat up old Renault 4, with an obnoxious yet somewhat charming Irish guy, who gives her no respect. And Murphy, well, he just keeps getting in the way, and will she even get to Dublin.

But, if you put a woman in a car with a charming Irish guy for any length of time, warm feelings can start to develop. So, things happen they way they do, and it's all done with great humor, the scenery is fantastic, it's like an Irish postcard at times. Amy Adams is amazing, and her costar, Matthew Goode is also excellent.

The one thing I will say is every Hollywood movie about Ireland has the obligatory cows blocking the road scene. It does happen, but come on.

I think you would really enjoy this movie, and I highly recommend it. If you like this type of movie, consider
The Quiet Man (John Wayne) [DVD] [1952] (Collector's Edition), with John Wayne and Maureen O Hara, really the classic of its kind, and The Matchmaker [DVD] [1997] with Janeane Garofalo, and most recent Cecelia Ahern's movie P.S. I Love You [DVD] [2008] with Hilary Swank.

I hope you found this review helpful.

This is one of my absolute favourite films in my absolute favourite genre. Yes, I acknowledge that it's riddled with stereotypes, that Matthew Goode's Irish accent isn't completely authentic and you need to take the plot with a pinch of salt, but I still love this film. The setting is gorgeous and it's shot with a real love for Ireland in mind, almost as a character in itself, even despite the stereotypical locals and slightly archaic portrayal of rural life. Anna and Declan are sympathetic, funny and above all likeable characters that you grow to love and the chemistry between Amy Adams and Matthew Goode is apparent from start to finish. The script is witty and never laboured. The more you watch the film the more little details you notice, which attest to the superlative acting skills of both Goode and Adams, neither of whom is the generic 'rom com' actor and both of whom are 'serious' actors in their own right.

In short, the stereotypes within the film do not detract from Leap Year's being a highly entertaining and endearing film of its genre. I'm surprised that it was panned by critics, because I don't believe it deserved to be.

This isn't the greatest romcom in the world - it almost feels sometimes like the film can't actually remember what it's supposed to be about. The shining light for this movie is the casting - Matthew Goode and Amy Adams make a lovely couple so you cannot help but root for them. There is a definite awkwardness between them which is either very good acting or they genuinely were a bit embarrassed about the script. The pay off at the end of the film is worth the previous 90 mins. Its romantic and feel good. Even though it wasn't great I can't help but want it on dvd. Romantic and clunky, but enjoyable.
