Too long, poor story, Jessica Biel needs acting lessons...could not care about a single character. Kid was adorable and Butler was as hot as ever. Too bad :(

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. :(

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.

Wow, this movie was sad and pathetic on so many levels. Terrible dad, hopeless man tramp, aged soccer moms looking to get some at every opportunity? Not what happens in our community. Ending...trite Come on Gerard....you can pick better scrips
