Playing for Keeps

Rated PG-13 105 minutes 2012

A former soccer star played by Gerard Butler, broke and reduced to coaching a youth team in the DC suburbs, fends off — sort of — a horde of randy soccer moms (Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Judy Greer) while trying to win back his ex-wife (Jessica Biel) and son (Noah Lomax). Not quite as bad as it sounds, despite the corny game plan of writer Robbie Fox and director Gabriele Muccino. Just sit back, try to be as loose as ultra-relaxed Butler (300, Machine Gun Preacher), and keep your eye on the ball. Also with Dennis Quaid and Iqbal Theba, stealing the movie as a comic landlord. (106 min.)
