Golden Age Hollywood charm with the obligatory modern Hollywood schmaltz thrown in, this will rile anyone who's been within 100 miles of the real Ireland, but run with it and it's an enjoyable fantasy all the same.

I could watch Amy Adams read the dictionary. "Leap Year" is sentimental, to be sure, but never sappy.

I'll grant that's it's not the most original plotline, but what really counts in these films is the chemistry. And "Leap Year" has plenty of that.

Despite its patronizing theme, and however much you're tired of Amy Adams's wide-eyed, neurotic shtick, Leap Year has a winning charm that sneaks up on you and makes you fall in love with Matthew Goode %u2013 I mean, with it.

Due to the nearly irresistible charms of stars Amy Adams and Matthew Goode, a so-so script is overcome and sweet matchmaking sways the day.

There's not one surprising moment in the script, but Adams and Goode allow you to look past the familiar and develop a rooting interest in them as a couple.
