A burnt-out soccer star tries to win back his family but gets distracted by his wandering eye in this romantic comedy starring Gerard Butler. His bank account drained and his libido fatigued, professional soccer player George (Butler) hangs up his cleats and heads back to Virginia. Determined to do right in the eyes of his ex-wife (Jessica Biel) and their lonely son (Noah Lomax), George takes a job coaching a local soccer team and begins working to form the young players into true athletes. But with every cougar in town eyeing him from the sidelines, George finds that staying focused on the job and keeping his prurient impulses in check are easier said than done. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I really enjoyed this movie. It had some serious situations in it, yet seemed not to take itself too seriously, all the while being funny and entertaining. The storyline was believable, the cast and characters credible. Definitely worth watching at least once.
Surprisingly Spectacular! I'm not a huge fan of Jessica Biel but she did very well in this movie. I also thought the previews gave this movie completely away. But I was pleasantly surprised it didn't. Very well acted. Great Storyline and acting. Situations and scenes in the movie were real and heartfelt and not overdrawn. VERY WELL DONE MOVIE!!!
