Kate and Leopold is a sometimes romantic and amusing spin on a very tired H.G. Wells and Hollywood theme about time traveling. Fortunately it has some insightful things to say along the way about the loss of Victorian gentility and the dishonesty of modern marketing. Its references to "Breakfast at Tiffany's" are a reminder that all modern romantic comedies owe much to that model.
