The carrots that Anna picked from the garden were not the same carrots that she was chopping in the kitchen in the next scene. The garden carrots were rather small and thin. The carrots in the kitchen were much larger and thicker. See more »
Mrs. O'Brady Callhan. Where the hell are you going?
You said no.
I didn't say no. I didn't say anything.
You walked away.
I was getting something.
Really? That was a good time to go get something?
Yeah, it was actually.

I saw Leap Year today. Matthew Goode has been a favorite of mine since his performance in Chasing Liberty with Mandy Moore. Amy Adams was new to me. Both leads were outstanding in this film. I am 58 and single, an old softy who always looks for a good "chick flick" and this one is a beaut. I don't want to give away anything. Just see it. You will love the interplay between Amy and Matthew. Theirs is a very sweet romance that builds ever so slowly. For laughs, there are pratfalls and other silliness (that's a good thing). The supporting characters are also funny and charming. The Irish countryside is gorgeous. On the way out, I heard a man behind me tell his wife "That was a good movie. I'd see it again." So would I. Definitely!
