Leap Year Has Some Classic Movie Charm
- Friday, January 08, 2010
- Drugs/Alcohol: Social drinking (including one scene where Anna throws up from consuming too much alcohol.
- Language/Profanity: A few exclamations of God's name, plus a couple of mild profanities.
- Sex/Nudity: No sex or nudity. Anna and Jeremy are planning to live together before marriage (even though Anna wishes he'd go ahead and propose already). While in Ireland, Anna and Declan have to pretend they're a married couple in order to secure the bed and breakfast's only available room. They share a bed, but nothing really happens but actual sleeping. While Anna is showering, you can see the outline of her body through the very thin shower curtain (something Declan points out later).
- Violence: Only of the comedic, slapstick variety (and there's plenty of that here).
- Religion: When Declan walks into a church and takes Jesus' name in vain, Anna adds an "is Lord" to the sentence.
