Quarterback Joe is living the ultimate fantasy but his dreams are suddenly changed when he discovers that he has a daughter he never knew about. Now he has to learn how to juggle his career and his young daughter. Being a new father, he discovers there is more to life than money.
USA TodayFull Review Average Game Plan is no exception. Still, when this kind of family-friendly fare stars someone with the kind of charisma of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, the entire premise becomes more appealing. And an adorable child actress doesn't hurt.

Rugged superstar quarterback Joe Kingman's (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) Boston-based team is chasing a championship. A "serial bachelor," Kingman is living the ultimate fantasy: he's rich, famous and the life of the party. But this dream is suddenly sacked for a loss when he discovers the 7-year-old daughter (Madison Pettis) he never knew he had, the product of a last fling before parting years ago with his young wife. Now, during the most important time in his career, he must figure out how to juggle his parties, practices and dates with the newfound ballet classes, bedtime stories and dolls that come with his daughter. Equally perplexed is his hard-edged mega-agent, Stella (Kyra Sedgwick), herself without a parental bone in her body. Despite the often-hilarious misadventures that come with a being a new father, Joe discovers that there's more to life than money, endorsements and thousands of adoring fans: the love and care of one very special small fan is the only thing that matters.
