Next up was Leap Year. I know, I know...another predictable movie. BUT...in it's defense, it took place in Ireland. And I'm ready to start planning another trip abroad. So, I thought I might check out the scenery (read...what the men look like there since the last time I went abroad I met an Earl who still may be Mr. Right, but I'm pretty sure he isn't). Anyway, I digress....
Another movie I could have written. Actually, had I written it it would have been a bit more clever. I kept thinking "ooh...I bet this precious thing will happen". And it didn't. Something less precious did. But that's okay. I will admit that I had an uber cheesy grin on my face through the whole movie. And the accents! Ahhhhhh...the accents. Be still my beating heart.
There is one concept in this movie that I adore. It has to do with "your 60 seconds". And when I think about MY 60 seconds I get it. I really, really get it. And, if I try to imagine what those we shall not speak of would do with their 60 seconds, I believe I would find out something I didn't want to. And it made me glad to know that I don't have to worry about that disappointment anymore.
So, for hotness of lead actor (in a dirty, "I live in the middle of nowhere Ireland" kind of way), for beautiful scenery, for moments of clarity, for $600 heels and Louis Vuitton luggage, and most importantly for cheesy grins I'm going to give Leap Year:
