Worst movie made in years. Clooney was horrible in this. He was a waiter before he made it big in Hollywood, so I guess that makes him a political genius. Anyway he's a good actor, but he was horrid in this.

Going in descending order -Great - Cinematography, music, John Krasinski playing a lovable sell-out (all those posters!)Good - George Clooney's Dodge is scruffy, funny, and amazingly enough, knows when to leave the party.Okay - Renee Zellweger, who was robbed of her Oscar for playing a 20's moll in CHICAGO, is frustrating because Leatherheads is set in the 20's and she is not delivering. There's

Sorry, but this movie just bored me to death. I couldn't quite get what the big deal was with the mian plot. Zellweger ; way over acts and Clooney is practically kissing the lens. Sorry .... total bomb fest .. 1 out of 5 stars. thanks

This movie was quite boring to me. I understood everything that was going on just fine, it was just an extremely slow moving storyline. Thats really the only thing I can say. It was good, and decent, but not the best movie i've ever seen.

There's a flatness about the whole enterprise -- like drinking champagne, but from an old house slipper. Re: his performance, Clooney is terrific. His comparison to old movie stars is not just hype. He really does possess the combination of supreme confidence and humility that has been the hallmark of the biggest male Hollywood stars. Full Review

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.

Los Angeles Times
Leatherheads proceeds agreeably, hitting occasional high notes when it isn't getting bogged down in forced slapstick hi-jinks. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
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. Full Review
Dana Stevens
Better than a finger in your eye. It's a perfectly passable, if instantly forgettable, date movie, lushly shot by Newton Thomas Sigel and with a script intelligently versed in American classics like "His Girl Friday" and "Hail the Conquering Hero." Full Review
