Leatherheads (Duncan Brantley, Rick Reilly)

With the early days of professional football as a backdrop, this comedy leads us towards a scandal, a romance and a sport.
Desperate to legitimise the game he loves so much, reckless Dodge Connelly hatches a plan to bring college football superstar and American war hero Carter "The Bullet" Rutherford to his Duluth Bulldogs team – as well as the crowd of thousands that will follow. Meanwhile, the Chicago Tribune assigns equally relentless reporter Lexie Littleton to uncover the truth behind The Bullet's wartime accomplishments and bring down his charade of heroism. Things become even more complicated when both Dodge and Carter fall for Lexie and the game of football must take a backseat to the game of love.

Starring: George Clooney, Renée Zellweger, John Krasinski, Robert Baker, Jonathan Pryce

My thoughts on this film: There is not much to it storywise but I found this movie pretty funny in terms of one liners and George Clooney and Renée Zellweger did a hell of a job!
