Leap Year (2010)
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.

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