Playing for Keeps Review & Blu-ray DVD

In Playing for Keeps, a retired soccer star, Gerard Butler, attempts to rebuild the relationship with his son and ex-wife, Jessica Biel, by coaching the soccer team. Although I like Gerard Butler, (I think it is the accent) when I saw the previews for this in the theaters it didn’t really seem like a movie I would like. Being that I don’t particularly like soccer or several of the stars in the movie, I was ready to write this one-off. Then I received a screener…

I really wouldn’t call this a romantic movie, but one where the moms of the soccer kids all think George is just all that and they all want a piece of him. But all he really wants is to do right by his son since he hasn’t been around and rekindle the relationship with his ex-wife who is now engaged to be married. This is a movie that I think people will be able to relate to the theme of returning home, soul searching, and having to grow up and finally becoming an adult.
