Leap Year

Starring Amy Adams, Matthew Goode, Adam Scott, and John Lithgow

Directed by Anand Tucker

Release Date: January 8th, 2010

Anna (Adams) has her whole life figured out: perfect job, perfect boyfriend, perfect apartment, and soon she figures he'll give her the perfect proposal. Only to her surprise, Jeremy (Scott) gives her earrings instead of an engagement ring. Soon, Anna is off to Ireland to meet Jeremy so that she can propose to him on Leap Day, according to an Irish tradition mentioned in passing by her father (Lithgow). Once her plane is delayed and only two days to get to Dublin, Anna must rely on Declan (Goode), a cynical taxi driver who may change her life's perspective in the process.
Sure, you know how the movie's gonna end up, but that's not why I enjoyed the movie so much. Honestly, I enjoyed the chemistry between Adams and Goode, and the level of comedy on camera between the two. Adams is most certainly showing her natural talent as a comedianne, and Goode displays his rogueish charm and brings a smarmy attitude toward Anna (Adams)'s penchant toward romanticizing Leap Day and all other Irish traditions.
