Leap Year: it's a movie

12 Jan

Well, this could have been a lot worse. I guess that’s a good thing? Probably. Anyway, aside from all the obvious problems this movie had (including how it wasn’t very good) I do wish they had showcased the Irish scenery a bit more and that Amy Adam’s character was more likeable and that Matthew Goode was better at an Irish accent.

Amy Adams is an extremely likeable actress and she did the best she could with what she was given, but I just can’t see her as some kind of high class bee-yatch who is best friends with Sweet Dee from It’s Always Sunny. The movie would have worked much better if she was more earnest and less “it’s a Vuitton. Louis Vuitton.” And it was just sad seeing her tramp around in countless high-heeled, tight-skirted ensembles that I guess made it all the more hilarious (?) when she rolled down a hill/fell in the mud/stepped in cow poop.

And Matthew Goode! You know I love you, but you are most definitely not Irish.

Oh well, even though this is (maybe) better than a lot of other romantic comedies I guess America doesn’t care because it didn’t even crack the top 5 box office intake for the weekend. I guess people were either distracted by Avatar or turned off by Matthew Goode’s beard.

    I’ve never even heard of this movie. Is that the girl from Enchanted?

    Is there any particular reason why this movie was made? Just curious…

      To remind Americans that Ireland exists? I mean other than St. Patrick’s day, I pretty sure most people forget it’s even there.
