Leap Year : More Like Leap Frog!

My friend and I went out for a girl's night and we chose to see the movie, Leap Year.

Amy Adams again in a starring role. I like her. I really do.

But maybe not in this role. Here she is hoping to receive a proposal from her doctor boyfriend and instead receives a pair of diamond earrings.
She spends the rest of the movie stomping (in high heels mind you) through the rest of the movie up and down the hills of Ireland trying to get to him on February 29th, to propose to him during a rare Irish Leap Year tradition.

Then of course, she meets another guy and they seem to like each other despite hating each other. (And haven't we seen THIS scenario over and over before?)

Okay. So, it had potential.

The biggest problem was a lack of chemistry between any of the actors.

I won't give the rest of the story away in case you'd like to rent it...which is the only way I would recommend it. The price of a movie and the six dollar popcorn just isn't worth it!

See? No sparks.

You'd think the casting director would have seen that during early script reading.

I give it 2 and a half popcorns. Maybe a three if I didn't have to buy the ticket or the popcorn. Like if I just sat on my couch, made microwave popcorn and had rented it. Now there's a tradition I can leap to!

We'd rent it for the Irish scenery! We do weird things like that! ("Hey, it is set in Ireland; let's watch it!") Thanks for the review!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

I took my girls to see it and they loved it. I think that is part of the problem - it just wasn't very plausible for an adult.

The scenery was gorgeous though.
