Our Score
Over-organised Anna (Amy Adams) rushes from Boston to Ireland to propose to her cardiologist beau (Adam Scott) on 29 February, only to be confounded by the one thing she can't control - the weather. Miles off course, in the wilds of Dingle, she enlists the help of handsome minicab driver-cum-publican Declan (Matthew Goode), and the bickering pair set off to reunite her with her intended. Director Anand Tucker (Shopgirl) has produced a light, frothy romance with just enough blarney to charm the susceptible. Adams is enchanting, even when teetering on ridiculously high heels, and Goode manages to hang on to an often strained Irish accent, flashing his puppy-dog eyes along the way.

Summary

A woman plans to take advantage of an Irish tradition to propose to her boyfriend while on holiday in Dublin. When they become separated, she faces a disastrous journey across the country in the company of a charming local innkeeper, and is tempted to leave her boyfriend for her travelling companion. Romantic comedy, starring Amy Adams, Matthew Goode and Adam Scott.
