But when Dodge convinces college football star Carter Rutherford (John Krasinski) to join the team, he hopes that the struggling new sport will finally capture the nation's attention. Carter is a war hero who single-handedly forced a group of German soldiers to surrender in the First World War.
His good looks and incredible speed on the field make him seem almost too good to be true, and reporter Lexie Littleton (Renee Zellweger) sets out to prove just that. From Leatherheads is a sort of two-fisted homage, simultaneously celebrating the early, unstructured days of professional football and the screwball comedies of the 1930s and 40s. stars as "Dodge" Connelly of the Duluth Bulldogs, a wily (if a bit long in the tooth) player whose team goes bankrupt.
His solution is to lure a war hero and star of the college football circuit, Carter "The Bullet" Rutherford ( from the American version of The Office) to join the team and, through the sheer force of his celebrity, legitimize professional football. Little does Connelly know that Rutherford's war record is being scrutinized by reporter Lexie Littleton () and what she uncovers may undermine the whole scheme.
Leatherheads isn't seamless--at times the screwball flavor feels forced and Zellweger's performance is labored--but those few awkward elements only emphasize how zippy and fun the rest of the movie is. Clooney also directed and demonstrates some real flair with editing and letting the fringes of the story be as vital as the main plot. Krasinski, with his goofy handsomeness and a streak of Jimmy Stewart charm, shows real promise as a movie star.
Though Leatherheads has plenty of broad slapstick (and most of it is pretty funny), the movie's real comic richness comes out in offhand gestures and sly revelations of character. All in all, it isn't Preston Sturges (director of classic comedies like The Lady Eve and The Palm Beach Story), but it's in his neighborhood, and that's a pretty wonderful neighborhood to be in. -- Bret Fetzer Synopsis George Clooney directs and stars in this romantic comedy set in 1925. Clooney plays an aging football star with dreams of bringing his team pro who sets all his hopes on a promising young player (John Krasinski, The Office) whose story may or may not be true.

Stranger Things: Erica Sinclair Funko 65634 Pop! Vinyl
My little daughter , who is 2 years old as well as 9 year old son are having so much fun playing together with All Around Peppa Town. The delivery came super fast. It was well packed. It did not have any batteries so we had to put them in order for the car to play sounds. The most playable part of it is the swing.
The price was so much cheaper than in any other web site.
My son absolutely loved this, and great service.
Brilliant as always
Article was as described and tractor and trailer were larger than expected. Really pleased and pleasantly surprised. 👌👌
Much larger than expected but that's not a bad thing! Awesome piece at a very good price, includes holes in the back of the plastic display box for wall mounting too. Really cool bit of movie memorabilia for a Jurassic Park fan!
Excellent quality recording and pressing. Artwork/sleeve also superb. Extremely happy with my purchase, will definitely buy again from Yachew!
Great item, courier issues but resolved by yachew
I bought this crystal cranium as a gift but I loved it so much when I got it that I decided to keep it for myself. The dragon and the sparkly skull are beautiful.
