Oh, Amy. We’ve loved you for so long here on Pajiba, even if we sometimes confused you with Isla Fisher (wait, which one of you was in Taladega Nights?) You haven’t run afoul of us yet, starting with your enchanting, heartbreaking turn in Junebug. You were adorable on “The Office,” fetching in Charlie Wilson’s War and, well, we even liked you in Enchanted, though it’s not something we advertise. We were a little disappointed when you signed on to Bride Wars, but the we realized that was Isla (doh!). So, we still loved you. Your performance in Doubt looks strong, if the trailer is any indication, and though your next project, Julia & Julia, is directed by Nora Ephron (spoon. gag.), it also stars Meryl Streep and it’s about Julia Child. We like that.

But then, you signed on to Night at the Museum 2, which we weren’t that pleased about, but how often does someone get the opportunity to play Amelia Earhart? We forgive you, Amy.

But this, ma’am, we cannot forgive. Leap Year? A goddamn gimmicky romantic comedy You are better than that, young lady. Here’s the logline: “Adams will play an uptight woman who travels to Dublin to propose to her boyfriend on leap day, Feb. 29, following an Irish tradition in which women propose to men on that day and the man has to say yes. When weather derails her trip, she enlists the help of a surly Irish innkeeper to make an unexpected cross-country trek to pull off the perfect proposal in time.” Now, here’s me crying silently in a corner (*sniffle*)

Well, premise notwithstanding, it could be good, right? Oh, wait: It’s written by Harry Elfont and Deb Kaplan, the duo behind Made with Honor? Oh, Amy. Why do you hate us so? We gave you our attention. We watched you grow. We followed your successes. We rooted for you, damnit. And this is how you repay us?
