Dear what the,

Another classic...being remade...into a modern retelling.
But, it won't compare.
It can't.

Dear Intellect,

I'm sorry I insulted you by seeing the movie Leap Year.

The romantic comedy is a dying genre and this one should have been laid to rest well before production began. The most entertaining part was hearing/seeing the reaction of the crowd at the 12noon matinee. It was as if they had never seen a chick flick before...I on the other hand know it's bad when I predict 80% of the movie - including exact delivery of lines.

Maybe that proves I've seen one too many chick flicks...

Blast me for getting suckered in all because of an attractive male lead (Matthew Goode).

But I hope Intellect, you enjoyed the attempt to save you by seeing Young Victoria. It provided a take on actual historical events, a female lead (Emily Blunt) who didn't make me embarrassed on behalf of my gender and another handsome male lead (Rupert Friend).

Maybe this proves I'm just a sucker for a period piece...or good-looking British men.
