When reviewing The Last Right, I realized I had never actually seen all of Leap Year. But I had still made an unfavorable comparison between it and the last right.
Perhaps I was being unfair. After all as Mark Kermode always says “you cannot judge a movie without having seen it”. It might be amazing. So, I watched it.
All cards on the table I did go in with preconceptions. I thought this is going to be really quite annoying from an Irish point of view. However, i reckoned it probably was a quite sweet and romantic movie, that works if you ignore the patronizing view of Ireland.I was half right.
I have some questions:
Mind you, it is still at least five times less insulting than Tommy Lee Jones’s character in Blown Away.
