My Thoughts on Leatherheads

Leatherheads is film that is both a sports movies and a homage to the screwball comedies from the 1940s, complete with fast-talking dialogue and sexual innuendo.

It’s also one of the funnier films I’ve seen this year. The only thing missing from this film is that is should have been shown in black and white, so that it would have been a complete homage (but, then I guess less people would go to see it).

Oh, and in a follow-up to yesterday’s post, I now understand why there was a tobacco disclaimer on the advertisement, since there was a shot (used for comedy) of a young boy smoking.

In the end, Leatherheads was a funny and enjoyable film and it was well worth my time.
