Flickedup.com : Playing for Keeps has no game
Gerard Butler plays a divorced ex-jock who needs to be a father to his kid in the terrible romantic comedy Playiing for Keeps.
Jessica Biel plays his ex-wife who just happens to be getting remarried. Uma Thurman and Cahterine Zeta-Jones play a couple of horny housewives who can't resist Butler. Dennis Quaid has a small role as a creepy team soccer dad who loves throwing money around.
This may be one of the worst romantic comedies I have ever seen. Butler, is a decent actor but this is not his finest hour as he stumbles though the movie as a good looking bumbling fool.
The notion that no woman in town, even those who have suffered most from his womanizing, can resist this hunky, dim witted, loser guy is, well, offensive and even misogynistic.
So much acting talent is wasted on this film and your time will be too. The flick-o-meter gives Playing for Keeps a one out of five.
The movie is so bad I didn't want to waste your time either, that's why I've keep this short.
Let me know what you think.
