Movie Review ---- Playing for Keeps
It has one of my favorite guys in it, Gerard Butler. I love him. Or....maybe I just love him in macho-man action movies. Because he really floundered in this movie. It wasn't HORRIBLE, but just not the touching chick flick I was hoping for at the Christmas season. My gauge is tears. I didn't shed a single tear. Darn!
It was frustrating watching him play a character who just let life "happen" to him, acting like he was just helpless in making decisions for himself. Not a fan of a character like that. There were very few "laugh out loud" scenes in this move, and the chemistry between he and Jessica Biel wasn't really there either.
Two stars. Sad really.
