User Review

An absolute delight

Rating: 10/10


I saw Leap Year today. Matthew Goode has been a favorite of mine since
his performance in Chasing Liberty with Mandy Moore. Amy Adams was new
to me. Both leads were outstanding in this film. I am 58 and single, an
old softy who always looks for a good "chick flick" and this one is a
beaut. I don't want to give away anything. Just see it. You will love
the interplay between Amy and Matthew. Theirs is a very sweet romance
that builds ever so slowly. For laughs, there are pratfalls and other
silliness (that's a good thing). The supporting characters are also
funny and charming. The Irish countryside is gorgeous. On the way out,
I heard a man behind me tell his wife "That was a good movie. I'd see
it again." So would I. Definitely!
