Movie Review!

Tonight I went to the movies with a group of friends (from this point forward I will refer to them as the movie club) and we went to see Leap Year. Before I get too far into this I want to let you know that when I review a movie, it may not be the way you might think it should be reviewed. I am not big on whether it is similar to another story I have seen before. I don't care if it has a predictable plot and it doesn't matter if I know the people that are staring in it. To me it is more about how the movie makes me feel......inside.

That all being said, I headed out the door tonight for my first movie club night. I could stop right here and give Leap Year 10 out of 10 because I was already feeling good inside, and I hadn't even seen the movie yet. I was getting together with my movie 'peeps' and that was good enough for me.

The movie was set in Ireland and I had read (yes I read it) that this movie was described as a comfy fantasy whose final destination was obvious. It was exactly that. It is a sweet romantic comedy that tuged at your heart and made you laugh all at the same time.

I don't want to say too much more because I don't want to spoil it for you. Just know that the feeling I had heading to the movies lasted the whole night. It was a wonderful 'feel good' movie and I am sure you would enjoy it. I am rating it a very strong 8 stars!

I am choosing the movie for next month so stay tuned to see what our next movie adventure will bring.



  1. OMGosh! You are just too funny! A whole review! I would personally give it 9 stars - it was just too good. Can't wait to see what movie you choose next month. I can taste the popcorn already!

  2. This movie sounds good, will have to keep an eye out for it. xx

  8. Carolyn you approach movies the same way I do.. and I also just watch because I want to be entertained. I don't care about reality or set design or anything else... movies need to make me feel happy and entertained! I wanted to see this one and your sweet review encourages that!!
