Movie Trailer for Leap Year Starring Amy Adams and Matthew Goode

Movie Preview: Amy Adams in Leap Year

You can rarely accuse a romantic comedy of being original, and the set up for Leap Year is no different. Amy Adams stars as Anna, a woman who's waiting for her boyfriend (Adam Scott) to propose when she learns that according to Irish tradition, women are "allowed" to propose to men on February 29, leap day. She chases him to Dublin and when she's diverted to Wales, meets a handsome stranger (Matthew Goode) who makes her rethink her scheme and relationship. Stop groaning.

I know the movie sounds cliche and sexist, yet I can't dismiss anything with Adams in it — her charm is just too powerful! Seriously, though, amid the mildly offensive plot details and too-familiar setting (how many times have we seen that stuck-in-the-road-while-cows-cross scene?), Adams still shines along with her freakishly dreamy foil, Matthew Goode. Take a look at the trailer to see for yourself, and watch out for a small bit from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Kaitlin Olson, when you

Leap Year comes out January 8, 2010.

You're right, I was definitely groaning at the end of that first paragraph. I'll probably watch it when it comes on TV, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.

Definitely going to watch this-I really like Amy Adams. Plus, I loved Matthew in Chasing Liberty, I won't lie, I thought he was really cute. And I really like romantic comedies so it's a win-win-win.

This looks too cute! Although, Matthew Goode is playing basically the same exact character from "Chasing Liberty" its even weirder because the girl in this movie is also named Anna, so even the lines come across as from that other movie. Still gonna watch it though.. :)
