Playing For Keeps Review

Went to the first showing on the day it was released. This movie hyped a romantic story about redemption and love with what looked like a lot of humor added in. I took my wife to see this and about a quarter to half way in, we looked at each other to see if we were going to walk out and get our money back. What I saw was a man chasing cougars while trying to straighten out his life. Normally I don't pay attention to other peoples reviews, but this one is probably one to rent when it comes out on dvd rather than pay to see it in the theater if your going to watch it at all..

Playing for Keeps - no rating

Unfortunately the theater it was playing in was shut down for repairs and wasn't aware of this until I got there, so I didn't get to see the movie. Requested a refund but they told me I had to go through Fandango and it appears you don't refund tickets, so my experience was not a positive one.

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.

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.

Great of Gerard Butler and boy, everyone else seemed miscast

Great acting by Gerard Butler and boy. Jessica Beil was believable but completely boring. Dennis Quaid and Uma Thurman seemed completely miscast, and their characters were stupid - they seemed very out of place in these roles. I am a big romantic comedy fan, but this left me very disappointed. I'm afraid I cannot recommend to others. :(
