Leatherheads on DVD

  • Title: Leatherheads
  • IMDB: link

“You’re only as young as the women you feel.”

In 1925 college football was king and professional football was struggling to get by.  Here we join Dodge Connelly (Geroge Clooney) and his desperate last attempt to save the league by wooing college star and war hero Carter Rutherford (John Krasinski) into professional football.

Those familiar with the screwball comedy know what to expect as we’re given fast-talking dialgoue, phsycial hyjinks, and a love story between a footballer and a reporter (Renée Zellweger).  For more on the film itself read the original review.

If you missed Leatherheads in the theater it’s worthy of at least a rental.  The extras alone, though nice (at least on the regular DVD edition), don’t scream must have however.  The special features are nothing special and the commentary gives little added insight to the making of the film.  Fans of Clooney, screwball comedy, and 1920’s era style films will still want to take a long look at this good, though not great, DVD edition.
