Storyline Heading
Looking for a way to rebuild his relationship with his son, a charming, down-on-his luck former soccer star gets roped into coaching the boy's soccer team. But his attempts to finally become an "adult" are met with hilarious challenges from the attractive "soccer moms" who pursue him at every turn.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Romantic - This is a romantic comedy-drama with a family-oriented father-son element as well as some mild raunchiness. Fans of stars Gerard Butler and Jessica Biel will have plenty so savor, but other recognizable stars such as Catherine Zeta-Jones, Uma Thurman, and Dennis Quaid have much smaller roles. Suggestive humor and language make the film inappropriate for kids despite a large kid presence.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Although not horrible in the way that truly bad films are horrible, it doesn't do much right.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average So that's good for something, in a film that's pretty much from the assembly line.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average But the sappy plot of this formulaic romantic comedy is just as silly as its inane attempts at farce.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Poor A dreary, dismally unfunny excuse for a romantic comedy, 'Playing for Keeps' is an undistinguished, impact-free watch-checker that will soon be vaguely distracting transatlantic travelers who forgot to carry on their iPads.
