Playing for Keeps

The paid critics were brutal to say the least regarding “Playing for Keeps”, giving it a zero out of 100 on Rotten Tomatoes and basically a 32 out of 100 everywhere else, but I went to see it anyway hoping they were wrong.
Gerard Butler plays an out of work former professional Soccer star. He returns to his home town to try and put his life back together, be a father to his young son and find gainful employment. Problems arise along the way and the feelings he has for his ex (Jessica Biel) that he thought were buried rise to the surface, while she is about to marry someone else. The story unfolds from there…
Severely disjointed and only mildly entertaining, “Playing for Keeps” is nothing more then an over done story that we have seen many many times before. It’s a predictable 95 minutes and definitely not worth the money.
Wait for “Playing for Keeps” to surface on DVD or Blueray.
