Welcome back to the New York Magazine Competition. On alternate Mondays (or, this week, Tuesday), we lay out a challenge and offer sample responses. Enter in the comments section or on Twitter with the hashtag we’ve provided, and the editors will select a winner. Criteria are highly subjective, but heavily retweeted and favorited posts will have an advantage. The prize is a year’s subscription to New York in print or a two-year subscription to the iPad edition (winner’s choice). Full rules are here.

COMPETITION NO. 67: “LEAP-YEAR MOVIES.” Please offer a movie title altered to accommodate this month’s calendar adjustment. For example:

29 DAYS LATER

THE EXTRA DAY OF THE LOCUST

THE 160-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN

Enter on Twitter with the hashtag #leapyearmovies, or in the comments thread below, by March 3.
