365 Movies: Leap Year Review

Leap Years stars Amy Adams and Matthew Goode in this 2010 romantic comedy. After having high hopes, that her boyfriend of four years would propose, Anna(Adams) decides to propose to him instead. Off on a business trip, Anna tries to track her boyfriend, Jeremy(Adam Scott) down in Ireland. So many mishaps occur during her flight, that she dropped off not in Dublin, where Jeremy's at, but at a small town. Immediately Anna has a distaste for it, and for the bartender, she asks help for. Declan(Goode), the bartender finds Anna to be prudish and cold, and the two don't get together, even though Declan helps her to get to Dublin. It's a sweet film, but I honestly wished that they slowed it down with the relationship between Declan and Anna. They do seem like they genuinely like each other, but I feel that the two characters delved into marriage far too quickly. They did have a cute rift towards each other and the chemistry was undeniably but that was the only problem I had with them. My other problem was with Jeremy, it just didn't seem very believable that he and Anna were "in love". There wasn't anything there. Overall, fun and sweet.

I want to see this movie, I love movies taking place in Ireland and I think that Amy is one of the best actresses nowadays (along with Emily Blunt and maybe Keira Knightley).

^ I meant kind of newbies actresses, that's why I didn't mention Cate Blanchett, Rachel Weisz or Kate Winslet.
