Under the glossy surface, it's adult entertainment,
This review is from: Kate And Leopold [DVD]  (DVD)
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.
