Consensus: Amy 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.

While thereâ(TM)s some chemistry between the pair, itâ(TM)s not enough to compensate for their paper-thin characters, never mind all the crosseyed Guinness-swilling extras.

Leap Year may be the least funny Hollywood comedy to take advantage of Irish tax credits since The Honeymooners.

Leap Year may be too narrow a scenario to sustain the allegories of cultural bondage Rowe is aiming for. There's no denying, however, his eye for the bold and subtle body language of his main actress, and for evocative visuals

In Hollywood, it's all about the concept, and some studio executive must have thought it would be fun to watch Adams slogging around in the Irish mud. Unfortunately, there's no accounting for taste.

The most charming of actors can be left flailing in the face of a feeble script and direction.

The bright spot in this boggy botched mess is Amy Adams, a fine and always interesting actress who sparkles and shines here despite the stilted storyline, preposterous improbabilities and an artificially sweetened storybook ending.

Leap Year is a sweet little movie, although so by the books that it doesn't exactly distinguish itself

What makes Leap Year so singularly dispiriting is precisely that it is bad without distinction â" so witless, charmless and unimaginative that it can be described as a movie only in a strictly technical sense.

Is it awful of me that I actually kind of like this movie, despite the fact that Amy Adams herself dismissed as complete and utter crap? I don't know,… More

Romance comedies have been bad for years, the record stands even stronger with this. Amy Adams needs to stick with movies like The Fighter, and he just needs… More

Amy Adams is one of the few actresses that I would watch in absolutely anything. She could be starring in a movie about cold sores, and I'd still check it… More
