A wonderful, charming and funny movie filled with pathos and, a the same time, with laughter. It is good, clean fun for the whole family and best of all it has a really happy ending for all.

Playing For Keeps

I liked 'PFK' a lot. Very simple. Quite well done. Happy-ending predictable. I find nothing wrong with that if the project is well crafted and fun as this one is. However, if you know it's going to have a happy ending going in, it can cut down on your enjoyment. Therefore, I don't think you should read a film review -- even a lousy review like this one -- until AFTER you've seen the movie... or not at all. The little kid is terrific. The kid-soccer coverage is fun and well edited. The music is well done and well thought out, particularly the piece that runs with the end credits. Every one of the cast did a fine job -- particularly Gerard, Biels and Quaid. It looks like everyone had a fun time making the movie. That came through for me. I would not pay more than $5 or$6 to see it -- candy, soda, popcorn included. The Shreveport, LA locations look great with the wide, digital projection and super multi-plex sound. It makes sense to wait for the DVD. Have fun. Thanks. ae

Not worth full admission

I'd wait until it comes out on video or at a less expensive theatre. You knew where the story line went, Catherine Zeta-Jones delivered a "forgettable" performance! Dennis Quaid was annoying.

Decent Movie

The plot was kinda vague and the story ran a bit long, but overall, this was a good movie. I enjoyed watching Butler struggle with his past and future and all the decisions he had to make. This movie is more for the adults, and I was glad that this film was not filled with a bunch of sex scenes.
