Leap Year (2010)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Amy Adams is as appealing as ever, but her charms aren't enough to keep Leap Year from succumbing to an overabundance of clichés and an unfunny script.

While thereâ(TM)s some chemistry between the pair, itâ(TM)s not enough to compensate for their paper-thin characters, never mind all the crosseyed Guinness-swilling extras.

In Hollywood, it's all about the concept, and some studio executive must have thought it would be fun to watch Adams slogging around in the Irish mud. Unfortunately, there's no accounting for taste.

Leap Year is a sweet little movie, although so by the books that it doesn't exactly distinguish itself

Audience Reviews for Leap Year

Standard rom-com. Watchable.

Good rom-com with Amy Adams and Matthew Goode that brings some laughs for there are pratfalls and other silliness. Adams really has wonderful physical comedic skills but still allows her charm to come across and make me smile. While the movie gets a little clumsy, nothing is bad enough to keep me from appreciating her. Her chemistry with Goode played well. He was fun to watch as the Irish guy who lives a casual life with no expectations and no concern for others. The Irish countryside is spectacular. The story is a variation on an old theme, but it is retold in movies because it is a good one.

Romance comedies have been bad for years, the record stands even stronger with this. Amy Adams needs to stick with movies like The Fighter, and he just needs to get in more movies PERIOD! A boring and predictable movie but I did respect the beautiful settings in Ireland, but then we get dumped back with a cliche and dumb ending where nobody even wants to stay in the theatre anymore.
