critics consensus

Though Jackman charms, Kate and Leopold is bland and predictable, and the time travel scenario lacks inner logic. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Kate McKay (Meg Ryan) is a modern day executive, a 21st century woman driven to succeed in the corporate world. Leopold, the third Duke of Albany, is a charming gent and bachelor of the late 18OOs. With career and social expectations looming, each has grown cynical about the very notion of falling in love. But when a rip in the fabric of time thrusts Leopold into present day New York, the potential for an old-fashioned modern romance ignites.

    The starting point of this romantic fantasy is the curious argument that integrity, honesty, and responsibility are just as important to romance as good looks, which is not something most rom-coms might put forward, and that most modern men lack these characteristics. And so when Hugh Jackman appears, royalty from another era and the personification of those characteristics, Meg Ryan's put-upon modern-day lass cannot help but be swept away. And why not? All of the men in her life lack responsibility and direction: her boss (Bradley Whitford) wants to use her for sex, her ex-boyfriend (Liev Schrieber) is too self-absorbed with unrealistic fantasies, and even her brother (Brecklin Meyer) is, well, simply an actor. It's a generic telling of a romance fable though, with more tricks, like playing "Moon River" to evoke a feeling, than substance, like giving our couple something to bond over, even while being more compelling than the usual grist for this mill.

    Jackson steals the film from Ryan who is just going through the motion. better then expected, sadly the dialogue is quite bad at times

    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.

    Leopold (Hugh Jackson) is an English Duke living in New York who is accidentally transported from the Nineteenth Century to present day New York. Kate (Meg Ryan) is a successful businesswoman living also in New York, but in 2001. The movie dwells on Leopold's adaptation to rudeness, quick pace and lack of culture. "A gentleman is a gentleman, and there are things that he does and does not do." Hugh Jackman is phenomenal (ohhhh la la) and the guy who plays Kate's brother (Breckin Meyer) is genuinely funny in the scene where he is trying to pick up a girl. Liev Schreiber was also superb. Can be a little cheesy but this movie is pure fun to watch, if you're in the mood for a romantic comedy escape from reality.
