Dribbling the ball and hoping to score on the soccer net of life, Gerard Butler is caught between love and a career in "Playing For Keeps." Directed by Gabrielle Muccino, the film tells the story of a former soccer pro, fallen on hard times post-career, who tries to revive a relationship with his ex-wife (Jessica Biel) by coaching their son's soccer team. However, Catherine Zeta-Jones has her eye on him as a possible sports broadcaster...and perhaps more, leading to music montages and emotions. The trailer for the movie was pretty tiresome, but here's hoping the supporting cast that includes Uma Thurman, Dennis Quaid and Judy Greer livens things up. "Playing For Keeps" takes the ball home on December 7th. [IMPA]
