Kate and her actor brother live in 21st century New York. Her ex-boyfriend, Stuart, has found a spot near the Brooklyn Bridge where there is a gap in time--one can return to the 19th century. Stuart goes back to the 1870s and takes pictures, then is followed back to New York by Leopold. Leopold gets help with fitting into the 21st century from Kate's brother Charlie, and meets Kate herself. Kate is climbing the corporate ladder in advertising, but her growing feelings for Leopold cause her to reevaluate her priorities in life.

For a guy like myself to like a love story that is not a soap is something. Time well spent.

Good, basic romantic comedy. Yes, it does start slowly, with a fair amount to establish, but the characters, and the decisions they have to make, are more realistic than in most movies. (Which is odd, given the time-travel aspect.) The "fish out of water" situations are not forced, and Jackman's character deals with them in a straightforward manner, rather than as the usual cartoon fool.

The first part of the film was slightly boring, but it got really good as the plot developed. I was impressed by Hugh Jackman's acting, along with Meg Ryan's. Both good performances! It is a very cute love story! with an original plot too! Most older folks will enjoy this one.

Very cute movie - time travel theme. It's nice to see how men were brought up to treat a women back in time with proper manners and etiquette.

Good story.

The movie is good old fashioned love story set in the present day

This film does the best job I've ever seen of translating the huge risk of committing to a love relationship into a visual symbol (in this case "walking the plank".) The film's plot functions beautifully as a setup for this brief but entirely memorable metaphor. (And Meg Ryan's business wardrobe for her role as an advertising exec ain't bad, either.)

Good - Kate and Leopold (2001) 118 min. Hugh Jackman and Meg Ryan team up in this wonderful fantasy romantic comedy. Jackman is propelled into the future from the 1870s to the present day and encounters the lovely Meg Ryan. A wonderful picture all around demonstrating how a man should treat a lady.

Enjoyable, but predictable.

When a rip in time brings together a charming 19th century bachelor and a thoroughly 21st century woman, the potential for an old-fashioned modern romance ignites.
