Playing for Keeps

My rating: ratings2

George Dryer (played by Gerard Butler) is a divorced former professional soccer player who wants to be closer to his son, Lewis (played by Noah Lomax), so he decides to coach his son’s soccer team and falls in love with the players’ moms (played by Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Judy Greer).

This movie probably isn’t on my top 10 or 20 or 30 favorite movies list. But I still like it. I really liked Gerard Butler’s role, as well as Jessica Biel’s role as George’s ex-wife, Stacie. I would recommend this film for children 13 and over, but I think mostly adults would like this movie.

Also, here is the website and the trailer for the movie.

  1. From your review, the movie sounds hilarious. Does George really fall in love with three moms at the same time? How does he do that? He must have a very big heart to contain all this love! Not to mention the love for his son (wants to keep him close!). Anyway, I couldn’t find the film in any cinema around here and probably it hasn’t arrived in Israel yet. I hope I don’t miss it since I am leaving for Australia on Thursday for nearly one month! I am looking forward to getting your next reviews down there!
    Lots of love, Dvora

    • Sorry I didn’t write a reply in a while. I wanted to, but I never had time. But now that winter break has begun, I finally have the chance to write a reply. Anyway, what I was going to say was that I don’t really think George fell in love with those 3 moms. He just gets interested in them. They’re the ones who fall in love with him! I love you and I hope you enjoy your visit to Australia!
