No romantic comedy or Emerald Isle cliché is left unturned, but Adams and Goode's charm should be enough to get an indulgent viewer to the finishing line.

A decent way for budding couples to begin 2010.

Welcome another gentleman Brit to possible leading-man status in Hollywood. Everyone else involved should redact Leap Year from his or her résumé.

Poor Amy Adams.

If a worse film is released this year I'll eat my own weight in cuddly leprechauns. So I will. So I will.

Any movie that gives Adams half a chance to show her stuff can't be dismissed out of hand. But "Leap Year" gives her slightly less than half a chance.

If you like pat romantic comedies with paper-thin characters and recycled plots then Leap Year will entertain you.

Adams does her level best, but her perkiness quickly wears as thin as her spiky heels on those pesky rural roads.

The bright spot in this boggy botched mess is Amy Adams, a fine and always interesting actress who sparkles and shines here despite the stilted storyline, preposterous improbabilities and an artificially sweetened storybook ending.

I settled for hoping that Pogues frontman and former dental nightmare Shane MacGowan would show up with his new teeth and start biting everyone to death.

The quick deaths of the three leads would've saved the rest of us a lot of misery.

...generic romantic comedy about a beautiful young woman (Amy Adams, experiencing a career low) who plans to land her commitment-shy boyfriend by flying to Ireland and surprising him by proposing on Feb. 29

Scribes Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont rely heavily on the dramatic Irish landscape - and it is dramatic - to make up for the lack of drama in their script.

Adams is cute as a button, as always, but even she can't energize this tired excuse for a comedy.
February 26, 2010
Rubbish. Irish eyes will be hard pressed to grimace, let alone smile.

Everyone tries hard, but Leap Year shows talent cant redeem a truly uninspired script. For committed rom-com fans only.
February 26, 2010
The film is packed with spontaneous acts of Irish country dancing and twinkly locals beaming over their Guinness. Ireland should sue.

The only "leap" I felt like making was off a motorway gantry into the fast lane of the M25.
February 26, 2010
Adams and Goode are hampered by a witless script, which aims for It Happened One Night cross-country battle-of-the-sexes entertainment but misses the mark so completely.
