It’s soccer and romance for Gerard Butler (Machine Gun Preacher) and Jessica Biel (Total Recall) in Playing for Keeps.

The romantic comedy movie follows Butler as former soccer star George who has fallen on hard times. In an effort to get his life together, George returns home and starts coaching his son’s (Noah Lomax, TV’s The Walking Dead) soccer team, hoping it will help him build a relationship with his son and ex-wife (Biel).

Playing for Keeps piles in a bunch of other A-list stars, including Dennis Quaid (The Words), Uma Thurman (Ceremony), Catherine Zeta-Jones (Rock of Ages) and Judy Greer (The Descendants).

But the film scored lower than Butler’s other romantic comedies in theaters. Playing for Keeps grossed $12.9 million, but 2010′s The Bounty Hunter took in $67 million and 2009′s The Ugly Truth earned $88.9 million. »
