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.

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.
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.Read more ›
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]  (Collector's Edition), with John Wayne and Maureen O Hara, really the classic of its kind, and The Matchmaker [DVD]  with Janeane Garofalo, and most recent Cecelia Ahern's movie P.S. I Love You [DVD]  with Hilary Swank.
I hope you found this review helpful.
