Leatherheads

    (PG) Wise-cracking Chicago newspaper journalist Lexie Littleton (Renee Zellweger) is assigned to investigate too-good-to-be true World War One hero-turned-college football idol Carter Rutherford (John Krasinski) who is signed by fellow football hero Dodge Connolly (George Clooney) to save his failing team. Naturally both men make a play for Lexie. Clooney, who doubles as director, stages some exciting football sequences, but, hampered by the lumpen screenplay, he mostly fails to revive the spirit of vintage 1930s screwball comedies. While there is some obvious slapstick, there is sadly little of the genre’s witty repartee.
