Leatherheads (2008)

Release Date: September 16, 2008
Studio: Universal Pictures
Director: George Clooney
Screenwriter: Duncan Brantley, Rick Reilly
Starring: George Clooney, Renée Zellweger, John Krasinski, Jonathan Pryce, Stephen Root, Ezra Buzzington, John Vance, Dan John Miller
Genre: Comedy, Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13 (for brief strong language)


Plot Summary: George Clooney and Renée Zellweger match wits in Leatherheads, a quick-witted romantic comedy set against the backdrop of America's nascent pro-football league in 1925. Clooney plays Dodge Connolly, a charming, brash football hero who is determined to guide his team from bar brawls to packed stadiums. But after the players lose their sponsor and the entire league faces certain collapse, Dodge convinces a college football star to join his ragtag ranks. The captain hopes his latest move will help the struggling sport finally capture the country's attention.

Review: LEATHERHEADS is a comedy. Actually, it's a screwball comedy, the type of comedy that Hollywood hardly makes anymore. The film was marketed as a pseudo-sports film, but it's really not a sports movie. The sports played are just the background noise for the script's witty banter, the designers' authentic costumes and sets, and the actors' delightful performances. The film also has a great score written by Randy Newman that also captures the essence of the era.

Plot Summary: George Clooney and Renée Zellweger match wits in Leatherheads, a quick-witted romantic comedy set against the backdrop of America's nascent pro-football league in 1925.

Clooney plays Dodge Connolly, a charming, brash football hero who is determined to guide his team from bar brawls to packed stadiums. But after the players lose their sponsor and the entire league faces certain collapse, Dodge convinces a college football star to join his ragtag ranks. The captain hopes his latest move will help the struggling sport finally capture the country's attention.

Welcome to the team Carter Rutherford (John Krasinski), America's favorite son. A golden-boy war hero who single-handedly forced multiple German soldiers to surrender in WWI, Carter has dashing good looks and unparalleled speed on the field. This new champ is almost too good to be true, and Lexie Littleton (Zellweger) aims to prove that's the case.

A cub journalist playing in the big leagues, Lexie is a spitfire newswoman who suspects there are holes in Carter's war story. But while she digs, the two teammates start to become serious off-field rivals for her fickle affections.

As the new game of pro-football becomes less like the freewheeling sport he knew and loved, Dodge must both fight to keep his guys together and to get the girl of his dreams. Finding that love and football have a surprisingly similar playbook, however, he has one maneuver he will save just for the fourth quarter...

EN 5 Second Review: How can you turn a football movie into inspiration less drivel. Put George Clooney in it.

He belongs to two churches — film and football — and George Clooney worships at both in Leatherheads
Peter Travers: Rolling Stone
Leatherheads is most on its game when it's in the game, and in the zone of Clooney's no-bull affection for the faces of his actors...more

If nothing else, Leatherheads answers the question: Can George Clooney do no wrong?
Bill Goodykoontz: Arizona Republic
It's the equivalent of a busted play, with the players scrambling in different directions, making any kind of forward progress nearly impossible...more
