As long as you're not an uptight person as some other reviewers seem to be, you'll like this movie. We're not all professional film critics - although this movie did receive two thumbs up - so the rest of us who just watch a movie for entertainment purposes will enjoy Kate and Leopold. Not an oscar winner by any means, but still a cute romantic comedy worth seeing. It is entertaining and I believe that is the purpose of watching a movie - to be entertained by it, not pick it to pieces and over analyze it. Lighten up with Kate and Leopold and just enjoy the film! I would buy this movie.

While Meg Ryan has contributed some worthy movies to the "chick flick" genre, KATE AND LEOPOLD falls woefully short of "good movie" status. While not a complete nadir, KATE AND LEOPOLD serves up yet another formulaic movie that offers no real surprises and makes us wonder why Ryan plays a role in a film as uninspiring as this. Not that the acting is bad, because it's not. The real problem is the story itself.

Stuart (Live Scheiber), an inventor and Kate's ex, discovers a time wormhole and travels back to 1876 New York. Leopold (X Men's Hugh Jackman), who invented elevators, chases him from his uncle's house, where he is to announce his bride to be, back through the wormhole into modern day New York. Leopold was to marry into money since his family has run short of funds. The rest of the movie shows Leopold adjusting to the modern world and wooing Kate (Ryan) off her feet. The first half plays like a natural "fish out of water" story. Stuart conviently has an elevator accident, getting him out of the majority of the movie. Also making an appearance, Charlie (Breckin Meyer), Kate's brother, spends a lot of time with Leopold, thinking him another actor. Beware: spoiler ahead. If you know anything about films, it's obvious how this is going to end, so it's not really a spoiler. Kate and Leopold go back to 1876 New York to live happily ever after.

The biggest problems I had with this movie was the uneasy mixture of science fiction and romance. The exact same story could have been told without involving time-travel. An excellent film in its own right, Splash took the "fish out of water" story and succeeded quite admirably. Here, the science fiction is little more than a gimmick to dress up a rather formulaic story.

I watched the Director's Cut version of the film on DVD and never saw this in the theater, so I'm not sure how many changes there were between the two versions. The major change, I believe is the relationship between Hugh Jackman's character and Liev Schrieber. In the Director's cut, Leopold (Jackman) is the ancestor of Stuart (Schrieber). In the theatrical release, there is no mention of this relationship. This changes the dynamic of the film in that Stuart wouldn't have nearly as much motivation in his actions as he does in the director's cut. I'm getting ahead of myself, though.
Once more, I must mention that this review is for the Director's Cut of Kate and Leopold. The movie opens in the 1800's. A bridge is just being built (I believe the Brooklyn Bridge, but I don't believe it is ever said). Leopold is at the dedication ceremony. He notices a man snickering behind him and turns to look. He sees this man (turns out to be Stuart) take a picture with a tiny (and I do mean tiny) camera. This is out of place and Stuart takes off running. Leopold gives chase but is unable to catch him. Next we see Leopold at home, at a party, and he sees Stuart one more time and he gives chase again. This time he catches up to Stuart but they both fall from a bridge. Flash forward to our time and Kate (Meg Ryan) appears. She lives one floor below her ex-boyfriend, Stuart. Stuart calls her and says that he has actually traveled through time but accidentally brought back his great grandfather.
Still angry at her ex, Kate does not believe his story nor does she believe that Leopold is really from 1867. However, because of the close proximity of their apartments, and Stuart's later accident, Kate and Leopold interact more and more often and become friends. Boy meets girl, you know the story.

Meg Ryan is not the pretty young little blondie girl she used to be in movies like "Sleepless in Seattle" and "French kiss" anymore. Not at all. Now past forty, it's a mistake to go after parts that used to be perfect for her up to five years ago. I mean, in "Kate & Leopold", Meg's age shows in her face. I liked her a lot in previous light comedies as the ones above and other like "Joe versus the volcano" and, most of all, "When Harry met Sally", but this ("Kate & Leopold") is too much. And that's just the first annoying thing on the movie.
I can put up with a script that deals with things like traveling in time (example: "Back to the future" is one of my favorite movies), and a XIXth century guy trying to live a week in 2001 New York: movie scripts are like that, they're meant to be entertaining; even if they are based upon the most preposterous assumptions, if the movie is good, funny, has good actors, whatever, if you really like the movie it usually doesn't matter that much if the script is a little absurd.
What I can't stand, and there is plenty of it in "Kate & Leopold", is a script that treats the viewers as dumb people. Anachronisms are ok, even understandable when dealing with movies that deal with past times; script writers aren't supposed to know everything. But in this case, the writers didn't even make the shallowest research. If they wanted Leopold to say things about "La Boheme", "Tosca", if they wanted him to say things about Jack the Ripper, if they wanted to be smart and base parts of the plot on the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, why did they make Leopold come from 1876, before all those things happened?
