Overview

Good Night, and Good Luck director George Clooney pulls double duty once again in this sports-oriented romantic comedy set against the formation of professional football in the 1920s. Dodge Connelly (Clooney) is a brash and handsome gridiron giant who is equally comfortable leading his team in a barroom brawl or charging for a touchdown in a packed stadium. But when Connelly's team loses their sponsor and the entire league appears set to collapse, the quick-thinking jock attempts a creative late-game comeback. If Connelly can convince former college football star and decorated war hero Carter Rutherford (John Krasinski) to join the team, there may be hope for the ill-fated team after all. Back in World War I, Rutherford single-handedly forced the surrender of multiple German soldiers -- a feat that firmly established the dashing young soldier as America's favorite son. Not only that, but Rutherford's unparalleled speed makes him a valuable asset to the team. To cub reporter Lexie Littleton (Renée Zellweger), Rutherford seems simply too good to be true, and she's determined to prove that her theory is correct. As Littleton digs deep into Rutherford's past, the two teammates enter into a fierce competition for her erratic affections. Now, as Connelly's plan begins to work better than he ever could have anticipated, the rowdy sport he always loved starts to take on a whole new look and feel. In the midst of holding his team together and simultaneously charming the girl of his dreams, Connelly discovers he may be able to use the same strategies he does to win on the field to win in love. Of course, there might be a few fouls as this game enters the fourth quarter, but like every good player, Connelly knows the value of always having a secret play to fall back on before the final score is called.

To be honest i thought this movie was gonna rock, i looked forward to this coming out on DVD. This movie is a sleeper, Some part were very boring and seemed to take forever. Dont get me wrong the movie did have some highlights to it, but not a whole lot. The acting was good and it had a good storybase, but it was lacking a good "flow". ~ 2.78/5

I love George Clooney and John Krasinski, they are the reasons I gave this a chance, but this movie itself is 'alright'. I did bust out laughing once or twice, but the over all film was just too weak to say I really liked it. I definitely think it's worth a watch, at least just so you can say you have seen another movie with those two actors. The original rules of football, at least portrayed in this, are amusing; as well as how some rules are made. If you're into football this might not be as boring for you as it was for me. I recommend.
