The problem was that Clooney did a lot of the writing. Maybe. Rick Reilly and Duncan Brantley had written the script over a decade ago, but Clooney alleged that he had rewritten everything in the movie save two scenes. He wanted writing credits and was denied, so he resigned from the WGA.

I'd read the original screenplay to see if he made it better or worse, but I doubt I'd be able to read a "screwball comedy" script well. And there's that thing where I don't care and all.

Hey - that's exactly when I watched Leatherheads. On a plane. Stuck. I had meant to see it in the theater, but never got around to it.
I thought it was harmless, other than RZ, who squints and squeaks her way through everything - ruining it.

80% of the problems with that movie were 1) the look, so sepia, so drab, and 2) the terrible score, also sad, and 3) Clooney looks old in it. He must have been working too hard. He looks great in BAR.
