What is it?

The 2010 Irish-American romantic comedy film Leap Year.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

A woman (Amy Adams) heads to Ireland in order to force her boyfriend (Adam Scott) to accept her wedding proposal by scheduling it on leap day, the only time when he couldn’t refuse due to the country’s tradition in this Spyglass Entertainment romantic comedy.

Shopgirl’s Anand Tucker directs from a script by Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan.

Matthew Goode co-stars as a handsome innkeeper who throws a wrench into the woman’s plans.

My Thoughts

I saw this movie once years ago at home, I am not sure why I watched it because based on the trailer it did not look good and it did not look like something that I would want to watch, but to my surprise it was better than the trailer; and I actually liked this movie more than I thought that I would.

This movie made Ireland look like a nice spot to visit, and if I am not mistaken I liked the chemistry that eventually built between Amy Adams and Matthew Goode.

I am not used to watching romantic comedies so I really did not expect to like this as much as I did, I only saw it once years ago, and so I am not sure how I would feel about it now if I watched it again; and I probably was in the right mood back when I watched this years ago.

Final Thoughts

I was not expecting the twist at the end of this movie.

Playing Hide-And-Seek With Amy Adams

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day possibly in the city of D, I was with some of my family and maybe some unknown people and we drove to Burger King through the drive-through, and then we returned to a fictional version of my parent’s house and I remember some of the others trying to go to sleep at some point.

Some of my family and some of the possibly unknown people had special equipment that was used to record and store and upload videos to online streaming video websites like YouTube (they probably used this earlier in the dream before we left to Burger King), each set of this special equipment had a square-shaped part/area at the bottom, and this area needed to be cleaned sometimes; but most of them did not seem to clean their’s, and so I remember waking my brother TD up to clean his.
