Leap Year

Leap Year

About the movie: Amy Adams and Matthew Goode star in Leap Year, a romantic comedy that follows one woman's determined quest to get married to the perfect guy...despite what fate has in store for her.

When their four-year anniversary passes without a marriage proposal, Anna (Amy Adams) decides to take matters into her own hands. Investing in an Irish tradition that allows women to propose to men on the 29th, Anna decides to follow her boyfriend Jeremy (Adam Scott) to Dublin and get down on one knee herself.

But airplanes, weather and fate leave Anna stranded on the other side of Ireland, and she must enlist the help of handsome and surly Declan (Matthew Goode) to get her across the country. As Anna and Declan bicker across the Emerald Isle, they discover that the road to love can take you to very unexpected places.

From me: Ok, just a couple comments on the men in this film: first: Adam Scott? Not attractive. Especially in this movie. I don't know what it is about him, but I cannot imagine anyone falling in love with him. Second: I love, love, love the name Declan, is it not the perfect name for a hot guy in a romance movie? I think so! (and Matthew Goode is for sure a hot guy!)

Okay, on to the movie. Leap Year was super cute! The storyline was original enough to keep me entertained, it was funny and, of course, the romance was ever-present. And the best part? NO sex scenes, NO nudity - woo hoo!

Thanks for going to see this movie with me. I liked it and was glad to see a good, fun, clean movie.

I'm ready for our next movie night. This time it should be a redbox to compensate for the $$ the last movie cost.

Matthew Goode is 100% adorable! I saw this with my mom on Sat. We both thought it was a good movie.
