This was a terrible movie. I was very disappointed with this film and my wife and I walked out due to the crude material. It has multiple sexual references / situations / scenes. None of this was portrayed in the trailers, so it came as a shock to us. I would not recommend wasting your time and money on this film. Big disappointment.

THIS IS A GREAT, HEARTWARMING FILM LOADED WITH A WONDERFUL CAST. IT IS FUNNY, ROMANTIC, SWEET AND GREAT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. FANTASTIC PERFORMANCES BY BOTH GERARD BUTLER AND JESSICA BIEL. GO SEE IT!

The director, writers, producers must have suffered a meteoric meltdown to think that this sophomoric drivel qualifies as entertainment. An ageing, once renown soccer player, "George" (Gerard Butler) returns to a town of desperate housewives (Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta Jones, Judy Greer), to reconnect with his ten-year-old son, "Lewis" (an enchanting Noah Lomax)) and ex-wife, "Stacie" (Jessica Biel). Predictability ensues: ups and downs of a father/son relationship; out-of-work George tackles the challenges of coaching a beleaguered, winless, little league soccer team, hoping to garnish the esteem and affection of Lewis (and still loved ex-wife, Stacie)...
ONE & 1/2 STARS!

Typical story line. Won't be any awards for this movie or actors here. Better to wait for dvd on this one. These actors should be able to find better work than this.

The previews looked pretty straightforward, and I wasn't expecting too much, but the wife wanted to go, so...well, you know how that goes. Anyway, great movie! Best Gerard Butler performance since 300. Chemistry with Beal was great, and for once they got the kid (Noah) right! The bond between the kid and Butler grew ever more salient as the movie progressed, and the kid was just fantastic--and he was a cute kid. So many times Hollywood gets these lame-looking doofuses to be the kids of two, good-looking parents, and we're always like--how could that dumbass-looking piece of crap come from those two nice-looking parents?
This is Jessica Biel's finest work as well. More often than not she communicated much of what she felt through her face, and especially her eyes...without overacting. She owned that role, and you could just feel how torn she was between choosing true love or choosing what was safe.
Great entertainment! Good values promoted. Guys, take your wives.
