    What is harder to comprehend is how Mr. Clooney turned out such a sloppy, haphazard and tonally incoherent piece of work. Leatherheads lurches hectically between Coen brothers-style pastiche and John Saylesian didacticism, while Mr. Clooney works his brow and his jaw and waits in vain for his charm to kick in and save the day.

    Leatherheads is daft.
    The movie at times is nearly unwatchable. The script is terrible, the actors suffer horribly from poor dialogue, and

    The movie at times is nearly unwatchable. The script is terrible, the actors suffer horribly from poor dialogue, and the overall result is just an inconsistent sports comedy with no real purpose. Leatherheads is a classic result of poor writing.

    George Clooney gives his all to make this an old fashioned romp and a good time. However, Kranski is to inexperienced to pull of his role andGeorge Clooney gives his all to make this an old fashioned romp and a good time. However, Kranski is to inexperienced to pull of his role and Zellweger is toxic in hers. In the end it's not good, bad, funny or sad. It's just boring. Full Review »

    Entertaining, but not great. However, being the only film about early football wins it some points.
