Leatherheads Reviews

April 11, 2008
The movie gets lots of things right, yet it fumbles key facets so badly that you simply can't christen it the gridiron version of 'His Girl Friday'.

Leatherheads is a romp with some great chemistry between the leads and enough laughs and surprises to keep you entertained.

Tragically, Leatherheads is just OK, though the film may well find an audience among those eager for a little diversion, what with the nostalgia factor and the George Clooney factor.

Maybe the film loses a little steam as it rolls along, but it is still puffing and tooting as Clooney and Zellweger ride off into the sunset.

There's a jaunty score by Randy Newman, and Clooney, as always, has charm to burn, but here, he's off his game.

[Has] a breezy, affable spirit, and its very casualness is something that's extremely rare in mainstream movies these days.

The film looks great, and the production design is stunning, but the final product is overlong and tedious.

The audience most likely to enjoy this film-fans of classic romantic comedies like It Happened One Night and His Girl Friday to which Leatherheads pays homage-are most likely to be put off by a smattering of obscenities.

Is Leatherheads a retro screwball comedy? A patriotic tribute? A sliver of sports history? It's all those things and more. Alas, more is not necessarily better.

A slovenly, timid, strenuously studied movie that takes forever to get nowhere, uninterestingly.
