Did You Know?
Matthew Goode later went on record saying that he reckoned that the film was one of the year's worst. He admitted that he took the role because it allowed him to fly home back to London on weekends.
The fake background of Boston and Ballycarberry is noticeable. The colors do not blend in with the foreground.
An absolute delight
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!
