Watching the trailer for Leap Year, I couldn’t help but wonder, “Who put Amy Adams in this Kate Hudson movie?” Adams is far too talented for a role which requires her to be a neurotic straight woman desperate for marriage and then do adorable pratfalls along the way. I don’t need to see this kind of movie again and I certainly don’t want to see Adams do a role she could do in her sleep.
Check out the trailer after the jump and try to imagine Kate Hudson doing this role. It’s depressing. You can also see the poster and read the brief synopsis. They are slightly less depressing the trailer.
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.
