    Given that this holiday film season has come up more than a little short on love and laughter, one can easily forgive Kate & Leopold the slightly excessive lengths and complications to which it goes in search of those rare commodities.

    It's a charmer.
  3. Has its heart in the right place -- and in a season filled with somber or goopy Oscar contenders, it makes a perfectly decent date movie.
  4. Has only the most tangential relation to reality, and therein lies its slender charm.
  5. 42
    America's favorite romantic comedian is miscast in Kate & Leopold -- a disappointment with the warm and charming Jackman around.
  6. 40
    The problem with Kate & Leopold is that although this is supposed to be a romantic comedy, the best scenes are the ones in which there's no Ryan.
  7. Is Meg Ryan going to play the goofy romantic gal forever?

    Honestly! I thought it was hilarious! Nothing like that gruesome humour of There Is Something About Mary (that I can't stand) or Borat (ewww)! Thank Goodness we can still laugh, with classy stuff! a 7 in its genre! Delightful for sure! I love all the performances! Nevertheless, this is something I didn't totally like: Leopold falls in love with Kate far too quickly! We needed to see the romance developing a bit more. There should always be a transition on this matters. I did enjoy the film, indeed, but at times it was a bit corney for me...and I am a girl (very feminine but not girly-girl). Thumbs up, anyway!

    "Kate & Leopold" aspires to be innovative as a romantic comedy featuring an imaginative idea as its plot, but it fails to avoid clich├ęs and predictability. Jackman is a decent match for Meg Ryan, who proves her deserved genre royalty once again. Expand
