Movies I've seen recently #9

Leap Year (2010)

The first time I saw this movie was on the plane back home from China two years ago. I really liked it back then, so I rewatched it when it was on TV. It is a sweet rom com, no surprises, a lot of clich├ęs, but I enjoyed it anyway (of course - rom coms is one of my guilty pleasures). Matthew Goode is, by the way, very very charming in this film!

Along Came Polly (2004)

One of the best things in this movie is the scuba instructor Claude's accent! "Exactliii, like se hippoo", "Gut bye, Pollii" (check it out in this video from 2:53). I think Michael O'Sullivan from Washington Post is spot on with this review: "Is Along Came Polly a great film? No, probably not, but it is a very amusing one".

Jersey Girl (2004)

Ok, maybe I'm just a big crybaby, but this is seriously one of the saddest romantic comedies I have ever seen. This is a movie I prefer to watch on my own as the water level in my eyes tend to rise several times during the movie. I just can't help it. But, of course it's not sad all way through, it is a rom com after all. And little Gertie is the cutest little girl!

Picture Perfect (1997)

A classic chick flick, nothing special. Kevin Bacon's character annoys me and sometimes Aniston's as well. The story is pretty predictabl, hence the classic chick flick label I put on it.
