A 2010 RomanticComedy starring AmyAdams.

Uptight [[UsefulNotes/{{Boston}} Bostonian]] Anna (Adams) travels to Ireland hoping to propose to her boyfriend (Adam Scott) because according to Irish tradition a woman can propose to a man on February 29 during a leap year and said boyfriend happens to be attending a convention in UsefulNotes/{{Dublin}}. Unfortunately bad weather forces her plane to divert to Wales and when she tries to reach Ireland by boat she ends up dropped off at Dingle (about as far away from Dublin as you can get while still being in Ireland). She ends up hiring local innkeeper Declan (Matthew Goode) to drive her to Dublin so she can get there by the 29th. HilarityEnsues.

The film wasn't greeted with universal acclaim, especially by Irish critics [[AmericansHateTingle who were left frothing at the mouth]] at some of the outdated [[{{Oireland}} Oirish]] stereotypes it employed. And to call it [[{{Troperiffic}} predicable]] would be an understatement. But it has Creator/AmyAdams as her lovable self, [[TropesAreNotBad in a role that certainly plays to that.]]
