Storyline Heading
Irish legend tells that, since the fifth century, women who find themselves in the land of luck can propose to their suitors who have yet to pop the question. The catch for these women longing to become legitimate fiancées? They only have 24 hours—once every four years—to utter those four little words to boyfriends who’ve been dragging their feet. And that day is February 29th.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average In the case of Leap Year, the problem isn't the absence of chemistry but the presence of too much of the wrong kind.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good It sticks to the track, makes all the scheduled stops and bears us triumphantly to the station. And it is populated by colorful characters, but then, when was the last time you saw a boring Irishman in a movie?

USA Today Full Review
Average Where it should be light and graceful, Leap Year trips and thuds.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 143 moviegoers:
TEENS:The three male reviews are decent but not great. Females enjoyed it very much. Most rated it very high and no one disliked it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Most males enjoyed it very much but a couple were disappointed. Over half of the females loved "Leap Year." Only a few were somewhat disappointed.
ADULTS:Great reviews from both males and females. Half loved "Leap Year." Most of the rest enjoyed it very much. Only a small percentage were somewhat disappointed.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
When her four-year anniversary passes without a marriage proposal, apartment stager Anna Brady (AMY ADAMS) decides enough is enough. Investing in the ancient Irish tradition that allows women to propose to men on Leap Day, Anna decides to follow her cardiologist boyfriend Jeremy (ADAM SCOTT) from Boston to Dublin and get down on one knee herself. It's just what her wayward-but-well-intentioned father, Jack (John Lithgow), would want her to do. Simple. Easy.

But when unreliable airplanes, inclement weather and bad luck leave the controlling Anna stranded on the other side of Ireland, she must enlist the help of the carefree-but-surly chef Declan (MATTHEW GOODE) to get her across the country. And as Anna and Declan bicker across the Emerald Isle, they discover something they should have known all along: the road to love can take you to very unexpected places.
