Goofs

The whole premise of the film is that on Leap Day (i.e. February 29th) a woman can ask a man to marry her in Ireland. Yet when they finally arrive in Dublin there are leaves on all the trees in the park and people are going around without any heavy coats. Either it is a freakishly warm winter or the filmmakers shot the scenes in Dublin during the summertime. See more »

Get over the negative reviews
27 February 2019 | by deborahlacekellySee all my reviews

Get over the negative reviews. This is a lovely film, sweet, with charming characters and a lovely setting. If you believe in the power of romance it may even make tears well up in your eyes. Not meant to change the world just meant to be a fun film. Louis, as in Louis Vuitton the suitcase, is one of the best characters right to the end of the film!
