Playing For Keeps, more like Lose All Faith in Gerard Butler Movies

Grrr... Not again. Gerard, what happened to you?? You used to pick good movies & play great characters. You need a new agent. The only reason I gave this movie a 3 and not a 1 is because the actors were OK. The writing sucked, the plot was played out & it was all extremely typical and predictable. The characters were not lovable & a romantic comedy like this, with a beefcake like Gerard, ya gotta pine to the ladies! I gave no sympathy to his part, since he couldn't keep his wang in his pants for 2 seconds, even though he claimed to be trying to get "the Love of His Life" back. Yeah, yeah.. the ladies threw themselves at him (understandably) but he could have gained more respect & compassion if he could have at least found a funny way to get out of the situations without boning every lady in town. Gross. Not attractive at all. I used to have a girl-boner for him, but was VERY happy to go home to with MY MAN at the end. No Gerard fantasies for me tonight. Dennis Quaid was funny.

Playing for keeps

I brought my 12 year old daughter to this movie because she plays soccer and I thought it would be a good soccer inspiring movie. I was very wrong! Instead, it was all about moms throwing themselves at the "ex-soccer player" coach and the coach trying to get his ex wife back all the while sleeping with the players mothers and disappointing his son. It was actually very disgusting. For the life of me I don't understand why Hollywood feels the need to drowned family movies with "adults behaving badly" substance. Are the writers just so desperate for material that this crap is the only thing they can come up with? Even the all star cast can't save this movie. Don't waste your money! Instead stay home and rent "Rudy" or "Remember the Titans" if your looking for a sports inspiring movie like I was.

Fun Rom-com

I didn't expect to like the main character, but Gerald Butler played the former soccer star from England perfectly. Great accent and demeanor, very like-able. It reminded me of the Russel Crowe in an early movie Mystery, Alaska. Cute movie, perfect for date night.

I was totally entertained by this film. The casting was excellent. Butler and Biel have a wonderful on screen presence. You could see the love and caring in their eyes. You could easily think that they were a real couple in real life, they were amazing throughout the entire film. The story was one that's predictable; but it's done so well you don't mind. I thought it dealt with divorce and the effects it has on children very realistic to all that have gone through that situation. This is an enjoyable film for sure and well worth your time and money. I wouldn't call it a bona fide chick flick; but I would go so far as to say a wonderful date movie. Catherine Zeta Jones also does a fine job in this film with a strong supporting role performance. So get your popcorn and drink and have a nice hour and a half at the theater.
