Movie Review: Playing for Keeps

by M. J. Joachim

Priorities are challenged and rearranged for washed up super soccer star, George Dwyer in this playful, romantic sports comedy about a deadbeat dad, who gradually comes to his senses. Falling from grace as an amazing soccer star, Dwyer makes his way back to his son and ex-wife. 

The journey is filled with opportunity, as Dwyer ends up coaching his son’s soccer team. The mom’s on the team throw themselves at him. And a few of the dad’s are less than savory characters. George is put in the precarious position of making important personal decisions, which go against the grain of his former personality.

Playing for Keeps is a love story, a warm and fuzzy family story, where wrongs are addressed and healed, so all family members can move forward in more positive relationships, and it was pretty fun to watch.

That’s all for now, kind followers. Wishing you a wonderful weekend, and looking forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks for visiting and commenting on Writing Tips today.

  1. Sounds like a great movie! I don't normally like sports films, but if the emphasis is on the family dynamic, I might like it.
