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.

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?

I will write this review to somehow make up for the time partly lost on watching this promising but poorly written (or poorly cut) story. I watched it on a CD-ROM as it was enclosed free of charge to a local magazine. Having read several reviews below I will go along with the notion that the original idea of the movie creators was to make something better, but the pre-screening research indicated that something a bit worse might perhaps win more applause. The movie is well directed and even the story has its moments, but the overall impression is unfortunately that of a low budget TV throw-away. A single illustration of the problems with the sceenario: I was expectant as to how brilliantly the script is going to win for us the scene of a 19-th century duke paying for the dinner at a 21-th century top restaurant (to which Leopold invited Meg-Kate). My shot was that some gold coins will land on the table, or better still. In actual fact nothing happened. Well-done movies do not miss good opportunities while leaving loose ends instead. The script does a good job on why Kate falls in love with Leopold, but why it happens also the other way round, frankly, remains a mystery - I suppose Meg Ryan charm was to do the job for the script writer.
