    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    A far cry from 2010's shallow rom-com of the same name, this Leap Year is a haunting portrait of loneliness in its starkest state. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Nothing about Leap Year plays out exactly like you expect, and Rowe prefers to send you home with enigmatic questions instead of clear-cut answers. You may not fully understand Laura, but chances are you won't be able to forget her. show more

    Don't get the wrong idea -- to Rowe's credit, this isn't just a movie about sex. It's a compassionate study of human loneliness. Whatever you do, don't confuse this with the Hollywood rom-com of the same name. show more

    I was totally taken with this movie. It was funny and entertaining not full of awful language. The scenery was beautiful and Matthew and Amy did a great job and played off each other\'s characters well. I\'m not sure why Matthew thought it was rotten but he did a great job in this movie.

    Wonderful movie, Amy and Matthew are delightful together, I watch Leap Year every chance I get. Please make more movies like this, its a blessing when you can sit down with your family and not have to worry about getting embarrassed.

    I watched the DVD 8 times. Found it wonderful. I give the movie 5 stars! Don\'t understand the professional reviewers with the poor rating. I fell in love in 2 months. Married in 6 months. Stayed happily married until her death for 45 years.
