Playing for Keeps

What's it about?

A romantic comedy about a charming, down-on-his luck former soccer star who returns home to put his life back together. Looking for a way to rebuild his relationship with his son, he gets roped in to 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.

What the critics said:

"These are actors due a break. Unfortunately, this comedy-drama about a kids' soccer coach boinking a bunch of desperate housewives doesn't appear to be it."
- Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine


"If Gerard Butler exudes rakish charm and Jessica Biel a charming flintiness, then why is Playing for Keeps so utterly charmless?"
- Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer


"Half the actors realize they're in a bit of Hollywood fluff, but others deliver emotional performances worthy of a serious drama. As for Butler, well, it's hard to say exactly what he's doing."
- Rafer Guzman, Newsday
