Irish people should be offended
29 September 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Anna Brady (Amy Adams) is disappointed that her boyfriend didn't propose. She decides to follow an Irish tradition of a woman able to propose to her boyfriend on Feb 29 of a leap year. Anna is a prissy girl who stages homes to sell. On her way to Dublin, her travel is sidetracked by storms. Her boat drops her off on an isolated coast of Ireland where the locals are less than helpful. A grumpy Declan (Matthew Goode) ends up driving her.

Amy Adams is usually a likable cute actress. Here she has a high minded annoyed disposition. The locals are all unfriendly, unhelpful, and unlikeable. The Irish tourism board should try to ban this. Matthew Goode is too nasty. I understand the tenets of rom-com require they hate each other before they can fall for each other. But there's no real need to push their characters so far. The premise of the movie is stupid to begin with. Luckily they don't spend a lot of time on it. Most of it is Amy Adams and Matthew Goode complaining about the other. At least they're pretty people to look at.
