PROFANITY: 1 GD, 5 S-words. No F-words. Several milder ones. SEX/NUDITY: One mild unintended sexual reference. VIOLENCE: None DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None ACTION: A few foot chases. COMEDY: Very funny throughout.
Very Good "..as with even the
cutest, lightest movie meant for couples on a night out and single women on a
Blockbuster night in, this one contains a Rosetta stone's worth of information
as much about the mythologies of those who made it as about those for whom it's
"Like most of Ryan's films, Kate & Leopold
succeeds as a diversion (although, at two hours in length, it's too long). It is
cinematic cotton candy - insubstantial perhaps, but ultimately sweet and
pleasant to the taste.''
""Kate & Leopold" wisely does not depend on
the mechanics of the developing romance for its humor. Instead, it uses its
fish-out-of-water plot to show Leopold as a proper, well-behaved English
aristocrat, astonished by what he finds in modern Manhattan.''
"Kate &Leopold is lacking in
originality. Think the fish-out-of-water love story Splash crossed with
the old-fashioned romance Somewhere in Time. Too bad director/co-writer
James Mangold (Cop Land; Girl, Interrupted) couldn't come up with
anything fresher and more worthy of Jackman's suave grace.''
