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.Read more ›
Romantic-comedy staple Meg Ryan plays a driven 20th century ad exec, who manages to be successful despite her flaky, Meg Ryan-esque nature and constantly tousled hairdo. I used to like Meg Ryan, back when she did the still-good films "When Harry Met Sally" or "Sleepless in Seattle," but now she annoys the heck out of me. It feels like she's phoning in her performance. I wish she'd do a different kind of movie. Though I know she's played against type before, it's never in anything that I've wanted to watch. (The last time I saw her play someone not cutesy was back in "DOA," I think.) She's getting, dare I say it, too old to play this part well. She needs to pass the baton on to the next generation of actresses, like Sandra Bullock (who's starting to do too many of these movies herself). Meg, for the love of God, play some teenager's mother in your next film. Please.
Hugh Jackman's absolutely charming as Leopold, a 19th century New York nobleman about to reluctantly choose his bride when he gets sucked into the 20th Century. He carries the movie, which is otherwise routine and dead-in-the-water when he's not at the center of it.
Breckin Meyer and Liev Schrieber do little with their supporting roles. The entire film is throwaway fluff.
