Director: Gabriele Muccino.

Starring: Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Dennis Quaid, Judy Greer, Uma Thurman, Iqbal Theba, Noah Lomax.

Running Time: 100 minutes.

Certificate: 12.

Synopsis: Ex-footballer George is trying to sort his life out when he decides to coach his infant son’s soccer team. His ex-wife Stacie is pleased to see him spend time with their kid, but all the soccer moms are pleased to see him for different reasons. Sexy reasons. Can George grow up enough to get his life together? Probably.

Imagine Mrs Doubtfire without the laughs and without the dragging up, then cross it with the Robin Askwith Confessions movies from the 1970s. Add an all-star cast, who really deserve better, and you’ve got Playing For Keeps. A soppy, family-friendly sex comedy that doesn’t quite know what it wants to do and ends up wasting your time.
