Movie Reviews

The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 5/10 by Liam Lacey Though the script takes pains to paint George as a passive boy-man, there's just not enough lovable here and too much of the thoughtless lout. Butler beware: In acting as in soccer, if you keep taking dives, sooner or later you pay the penalty.
San Francisco Chronicle - 5/10 by Mick LaSalle As a movie, it's not much. But it's the best showcase for his charm that Butler has ever had.
Los Angeles Times - 5/10 by Betsy Sharkey At some point you hope the actor (Butler) will find a movie that will give him the right material to make hearts truly beat faster. Until then, it appears we'll have to settle for films with more flaws than his characters.
Chicago Sun-Times - 5/10 by Roger Ebert Jessica Biel all but steals the show as Stacie.
ReelViews - 5/10 by James Berardinelli A sloppy, poorly focused comedy.
USA Today - 4/10 by Claudia Puig The shenanigans of randy soccer moms and their obnoxious blowhard husbands are intended as comic relief. But the sappy plot of this formulaic romantic comedy is just as silly as its inane attempts at farce.
New York Daily News - 4/10 by Elizabeth Weitzman Perhaps, if this movie fails, studios will finally accept that we all deserve better. Biel knows it already, and Butler keeps up in their scenes together.
Entertainment Weekly - 4/10 by Darren Franich The central question of the movie becomes: Can George triumph over his inability to stop hot women from throwing themselves at him?
Variety - 4/10 by Justin Chang A modestly affecting reconciliation drama wrapped in a so-so sports movie by way of a misogynistic romantic comedy, Playing for Keeps can't stop tripping all over itself.
The New York Times - 4/10 by A.O. Scott Sometimes the movie swerves toward farce, sometimes into the zone of smiley family comedy and at other times into full-on weepiness. None of it is especially credible or engaging.
Chicago Tribune - 4/10 by Michael Phillips Only Biel and Greer lift it above the level of bleh.
Austin Chronicle - 4/10 by Louis Black Watching this all-too-predictable romantic comedy/drama, my overwhelming thought was this: Given all the great filmmakers and film projects that can't find funding, how did this effort secure its reported $35 million for production?
