Box Office
Mark Keizer quote iconIt’s the tradition that American studio romantic comedies must be artificial, assembly line driven and lacking surprise. Which is to say Leap Year is an American studio romantic comedy.
5
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconBottom line: This is a full-bore, PG-rated, sweet rom-com. 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?

eye Weekly
Edward Keenan quote iconThe Irish landscape and Adams considerable charms are fun to watch for a while, but like the tiny boat and tinier car she boards at points in the story, they aren’t powerful enough vehicles to carry the film to its destination.

C. Fuchs quote iconThe best thing the film has going for it are its stunning Irish locations.

Tomatometer quote iconAmy Adams is as appealing as ever, but her charms aren't enough to keep Leap Year from succumbing to an overabundance of clichés and an unfunny script.
