Kate & Leopold



Critic Consensus: Though Jackman charms, Kate and Leopold is bland and predictable, and the time travel scenario lacks inner logic.

Critic Reviews for Kate & Leopold

All Critics (127) | Top Critics (32)

A time-travel romantic comedy whose best elements -- Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman -- overcome distracting plot holes, loose threads and assorted contrivances to make for a mostly charming and diverting tale.

Ironically, what jeopardises the transaction is Ryan.

It's rare to come across a time travel tale as listless as this one.

Some nice moments but overall not a total success.

Common Sense Media

Surprisingly effective romantic comedy with Hugh Jackman at his most charming and Meg Ryan proving yet again why she has become the watermark against which all other female romantic leads are compared.

Big Picture Big Sound

Despite a promising premise, Jackman's Golden Globe-nominated performance remains the only tangible reason to see this movie.

Audience Reviews for Kate & Leopold

This movie is all kinds of weird, but I love it for that reason. Time travel and love stories have never been so eloquently put together like this. Hugh Jackman dominates the screen as Leopold, becoming the epitome of an English Gentleman who loves his good butter and tea. Meg Ryan also does a great job at making the humor work so well. It's almost like a British interpretation of Back To the Future, only with a lot of Margarine bashing.
