I went to Playing for Keeps expecting to laugh,have fun, and yes drool over Gerard Butler. Gerard Butler looked good and talked smooth...but the movie drug and drug. I kept looking at the clock wondering how much more I had to sit thru. The characters were not developed well and the movie left me feeling flat. Some great actors like Gerard Butler, Dennis Quad, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jessica Biel, and Ulma Thurman but the story development was weak. The director did not take advantage of the talent he had. Go in with low expectations and you won't be disappointed.
