If you are looking for a movie that will make you laugh and fall in love, then you must probably looking for the movie Leap Year starring Mathew Goode and Amy Adams.
Adams plays an uptight woman who travels to Dublin to propose to her boyfriend on leap day, Feb. 29, following an Irish tradition in which women propose to men on that day and the man has to say yes. When weather derails her trip, she enlists the help of a surly Irish innkeeper, Goode, to make an unexpected cross-country trek to pull off the perfect proposal in time.
First 20 minutes
Adams was with her friend and was—what were they doing? Oh, they are in this dress shop fitting a dress (maybe), but moving on, this friend of her told her that she saw Adams boyfriend going out of the jewelry shop couple of hours ago ( hours or days?). The girls were frantic and excited for they thought that the guy will probably propose Adams. This is where I first grasp the humor and the poignancy of the story that this movie wants to deliver.
The movie was brilliant. I can’t stop smiling and laughing. It was like; I am watching a John Green’s novel made into a motion picture. Plus, Ireland is wicked amazing! The place is very cool. Irish culture is very interesting, especially their accent and music.
First was the part where the two were stuck at the country road on their way to Dublin because a herd of cows block their way. I was really laughing at the top of my lungs when she tries to tame the cows while the guy, with this cool personality like my father, just keeps teasing her. This part was just amazing. Yeah, especially the stilettos above the brown cake!
Second was the part where the two was sharing a dinner with these couples in a small country shack. The two other couples are so sweet and were kissing romantically, while Adams and Goode are awkwardly pretending to be couples for some important reason. I don’t want to spoil you if ever you are reading this and still haven’t watch the movie so I’ll just leave this as somewhat a cliffhanger shall we say. Watch the movie and you will truly love this part.
Next part was probably the part where Goode and Adams are at the lobby of the hotel and Adams boyfriend arrived. That was the heaviest scene for me and I was literally in the state of oblivion the moment I was watching it. The details will be confidential again and I won’t be spilling some more beans. Watch the movie; seriously, you won’t regret it.
Leaping to End
Leap Year is indeed a movie to be remembered. I really enjoyed watching it. Everything about it was just merely perfect, from the cast to the story up to the cinematography. Hands down! This movie is a must watch and yes, one of the best movies I watched in my entire life.
