When Leatherheads focuses on the gridiron, it is slightly amusing and worth your time, but once it gets into a romantic triangle involving the three leads, Leatherheads feels like any other tired romantic comedy.

The film looks great, and the production design is stunning, but the final product is overlong and tedious.
October 11, 2018
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.
August 23, 2018
A slovenly, timid, strenuously studied movie that takes forever to get nowhere, uninterestingly.

Clooney stages screwball repartee like a ping-pong match shot through molasses
February 2, 2009
Leatherheads tries to be a screwball comedy, but it's more The Eleven Stooges.
July 19, 2008
Leatherheads really doesn't know what kind of film it is, and as a result it shanks the winning kick -not by a mile- but by enough to be a disappointment.
July 17, 2008
A gorgeous, charming, quaintly stylish movie comprised almost exclusively of moments and not so much story or characters.
June 28, 2008
Therein lies the problem with Leatherheads %u2014 it has too many fish to fry, and most of them come out half-done.
June 12, 2008
Star power is not enough to save this film from mediocrity.
June 11, 2008
"Leatherheads" fails because it has trouble balancing its many plots, and because it has nothing remotely interesting to say about any of them.
June 8, 2008
I'm sad to report that Clooney has had his first misfire as a director.
June 7, 2008
It's the bad moments that will probably stay with you.
May 4, 2008
Clooney's third movie as director is his weakest.
May 1, 2008
Leatherheads shoots for the Frank Capra/Howard Hawks goal posts but instead winds up getting bogged down midfield.
April 16, 2008
A quiet variety of disaster--the type that attracts no cults and appears as a curiosity on a few talented folks' résumés for people to try to place in a year or so. Maybe less.
April 16, 2008
Clooney tries to Flags of Our Fathers if directed by Preston Sturges.
April 16, 2008
A 1920s football saga that blends rusty screwball comedy and perfunctory romance under a period piece veneer.
April 11, 2008
Probably only Clooney could expect to get away with a movie this bad...
