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.

Amy Adams is such a likable actress that she makes the romantic comedy "Leap Year" worth watching even though we've seen it all before.

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.

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

Rubbish. Irish eyes will be hard pressed to grimace, let alone smile.

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.

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.

Adams is perky and watchable and almost saves the film. But it's so dumb: how come the eventual proposal, supposedly set a few yards from the Dingle pub, seems to take place on the Cliffs of Moher, 75 miles away?

For all the contrivances, the idiocies and the scenes of pure unabashed tedium the pair won my over, the sight of them together filling my heart with just enough joy I was ready to forgive much that I normally wouldn't.

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.

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.

Leap Year is a sweet little movie, although so by the books that it doesn't exactly distinguish itself
January 8, 2010
Leap Year may be the least funny Hollywood comedy to take advantage of Irish tax credits since The Honeymooners.
January 8, 2010
The most charming of actors can be left flailing in the face of a feeble script and direction.
January 8, 2010
What makes Leap Year so singularly dispiriting is precisely that it is bad without distinction " so witless, charmless and unimaginative that it can be described as a movie only in a strictly technical sense.
January 8, 2010
If the premise seems lame, the actual script by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont is far worse, leaning on so many clichd situations it's a wonder 45 other screenwriters weren't credited.
