    Football, they say, is a game of inches, and so can be moviemaking, and Leatherheads is a completely charming film that comes a few inches from being a great one.

    Leatherheads is daft.
    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. Full Review »

    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 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.
