I'm not sure how I have missed this movie until now, but on the chance that you have never seen it either, I want to tell you about it. If you have viewed it before, then perhaps you need to take a break and watch it again. It is sure to make you smile, even laugh out loud. But, mostly it is simply enchanting, which is totally appropriate since it takes place in Ireland.
Oh, did someone mention leprechauns? Well, I have to say, Declan reminds me a great deal of a leprechaun. He even jumps and clicks his heels. But most of all, he brings good fortune into Anna's life.
Yes, this is a sweet love story that is a little predictable, yet it is so charming you won't care that you know what to expect. You'll simply be glad you are along for the ride and listening to the witty banter between these two hearts speaking the language of love.
I have always been a hopeless romantic. I was once even dubbed the Forever Hopeless Romantic Contributor. Here on Review This Reviews, we have broken the bounds of those niche walls, but that doesn't change who I am. A great romantic movie still appeals to me more than any other genre.
Leap Year - The Movie
Anna Brady (Amy Adams) and Dr. Jeremy Sloane (Adam Scott) have been in a committed relationship with each other for 4 years. However, they are not married and Anna wants to get married. When she thinks Jeremy is about to propose over dinner one evening, she is greatly disappointed to discover diamond earrings in the small jewelry box instead of a diamond engagement ring. Jeremy is oblivious to Anna's feelings and doesn't hesitate to excuse himself from dinner early when called away for a medical emergency.
Leap Year - Amazon Video RentalWhen Jeremy leaves to attend a cardiology convention in Ireland, Anna is reminded of an old Irish tradition. Each Leap Year, on February 29th, the woman can propose to the man. After all, that is what her own grandmother did decades ago. She decides it is time for her to act! Otherwise, who knows how long it will be before she is engaged, much less married.
Anna's flight to Dublin, Ireland is diverted due to weather. They are forced to land in Cardiff, Wales. Because she is determined to get to Dublin, she hires a boat. Then, the boat is forced to dock in Dingle because the storm is simply too dangerous to continue. It is in Dingle that she meets her cheeky, tall, dark and handsome leprechaun. Because Declan (Matthew Goode) needs the money, he agrees to drive her to Dublin and that is where all the fun begins.
Watch Leap Year for Yourself!
If you find yourself searching for a great romantic comedy, Leap Year will be the perfect choice. If you are also a hopeless romantic, be sure you pay close attention to the brides speech during the wedding in the movie. You will love it!
You may even find yourself wondering if you only had 60 seconds to get out of a burning house, what would you grab?
