About the Movie
Academy Award® winners George Clooney and Renée Zellweger team up in this fun-filled comedy set against the beginnings of pro football. Dodge Connelly (Clooney), captain of a struggling squad of barroom brawlers, has only one hope to save his team: recruit college superstar Carter Rutherford (John Krasinski, The Office). But when a feisty reporter (Zellweger) starts snooping around, she turns the two teammates into instant rivals and kicks off a wild competition filled with hilarious screwball antics! Critics are cheering Leatherheads as "a real winner" (Claudia Puig, USA Today).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: More amiable than witty and relying heavily on the likability and charm of its lead actors, Leatherheads scores more points as a retro romantic comedy than a football saga.
Rotten: 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.
Rotten: Leatherheads is not that good a movie, and yet it would be hard to enjoy saying anything nasty about it.
this movie is hilariousss, and its so good. I loved it and saw it like 3 times in theater. you have to go see it, its so great!
not even worth a cent
my friend and I went to see that movie, actually excited about seeing it. but after just one hour I fell asleep and my friend was going to. I'm afraid I have to say we walked out on that one.
Very good movie
The cast and acting was great. Costumes, genre, and photography were excellent. I throughly enjoyed this movie with it's quick witted banter and almost film noir quality. Looking forward to seeing it again.
