Seersucker Suite Movie Review - Leap Year



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:

TWO SEERSUCKER SUITS!  Now, I realize I may lose some credibility with readers here, but I get a free pass for a while.  Right?  I'm all heart broken, fragile as a flower, pretty pretty princess and all...so bare with me.  The movie made me smile, so I'm giving it 2 Seersucker Suits.  End of story :)

Beautiful scenery and a smile are great reasons to up its rating. :)

Awh, I loved Leap Year...corny & predictable, but sometimes that is exactly what we need!
