Leatherheads Reviews

    The great cast can't make the script, or their characters funny or interesting. Only notable for its football.

    An enjoyable film with a story based loosely on Red Grange being signed by George Halas back in the day. It's a comedy; so, just enjoy the story, the actors, and the music.

    Best movie of all time. Leatherheads will baffle you with a jerk of a protagonist, an innocent antagonist, and a climax that makes no sense. I mean that final scene where Geoge Clooney cheats and lines up on the opponents side doesnt make a difference. I give this a 5/5. Very creative but I think the writer should try again.

    Leatherheads starts off as an amusing romantic comedy set in the early days of football, but then, about halfway through, it calls an audible and the tone of the movie shifts. Suddenly it's throwing in farce, slapstick and ambiguous moral conflicts. It's as if George Clooney stole the playbook for a Coen Brothers movie, but he didn't quite understand how to use it.

    Fast, witty banter, a true screwball comedy. Ahead of its time, hence the poor reviews from so many cynical reviewers

    Think to an extent, this movie is a bit underrated.Clooney fits perfectly into this movie. I usually don't care what Ren'ee does but she was a fine choice for it. An entertaining "football" movie with good back and fourth banter that yes I do agree carries that "nostaligia" feeling with it but....well look at what it is based on...It should have some nostalgic feeling to it. I think there are some rather boring scenes but overall I found the movie pretty entertaining. With that said, that really shoudl be all that matters. It was enteraining, nothing really over the top besides the forced word play but i think that is what brought more laughs to it over stale faces. Not like I know how they talked back in the day though either ha.

    Witty and entertaining flick about the beginnings of professional football.

    Routine comedy tries hard to be funny and sometimes succeeds.
