Leatherheads (2008) (C)
"Clooney and Zellweger are comic gold."
Kevin Steincross, Fox-TV.
In the beginning, the rules were simple. There weren't any.
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) -- (C) Universal Studios Home Entertainment, 2008, USA/Germany.
Starring George Clooney, Renée Zellweger, John Krasinski, Jonathan Pryce.
Directed by George Clooney.
