Playing For Keeps Review - Playing for KeepsDec 9, 2012News With a line up like in this movie, one would expect some wow factor but unfortunately this movie was 'tame'.A few laughs here and there and a couple of 'football tricks' was about all one got.Jessica Biel was the only one who made any impression at all as a young mother. Gerard Butler was not pushed to show any finesse on or off the field. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Uma Thurman were decorative. Dennis Quaid is wasted. Judy Greer extracted a few laughs as a slightly neurotic soccer mother.The Story : George (Gerard Butler) , a former footballer , is unemployed and divorced. He had relocated to bond with his young son and in the course of events ends up coaching his son's soccer league. His luck turns and he is now popular (really popular !) and could be in line to getting a job in another city. But how will he manage his newly forged realtionship with his son, his feelings for his ex-wife. That is the second half of the story.Nothing new, nothing exciting, nothing different. A very average movie.Padma Priya Playing For Keeps Review - Playing for Keeps Dec 9, 2012

With a line up like in this movie, one would expect some wow factor but unfortunately this movie was 'tame'.A few laughs here and there and a couple of 'football tricks' was about all one got.

Jessica Biel was the only one who made any impression at all as a young mother. Gerard Butler was not pushed to show any finesse on or off the field. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Uma Thurman were decorative. Dennis Quaid is wasted. Judy Greer extracted a few laughs as a slightly neurotic soccer mother.

The Story : George (Gerard Butler) , a former footballer , is unemployed and divorced. He had relocated to bond with his young son and in the course of events ends up coaching his son's soccer league. His luck turns and he is now popular (really popular !) and could be in line to getting a job in another city. But how will he manage his newly forged realtionship with his son, his feelings for his ex-wife. That is the second half of the story.

Nothing new, nothing exciting, nothing different. A very average movie.
