Trailer Hopping : LIght Hearted and Touching Romantic Comedy: Playing for Keeps

Rating: Butter
Posted November 28th, 2012 by popcorn

Playing for Keeps. Gerald Butler and romantic comedies. Between his rugged handsomeness, well-built stature and Scottish accent that women seemed to love, why would he want to do anything else?

The Playing for Keeps trailer plays to all Gerald Butler’s bankable Hollywood attributes post the 300 movie. He is portrayed as a lovable goof-ball and easy going character who loves his boy and the people around him. His biggest and only flaw seemed to be that he still needs to figure out what he wants from life and love. Doesn’t that just play to a woman’s heart strings and her desire to change or rescue him?

Lucky for him, his picks for love in this movie includes his ex-wife or ex-girlfriend, Jessical Biel, the gorgeous ex-ESPN newscaster played by Catherine Zeta-Jones and the starry eyed married beauty, Uma Thurman, who seems to only admire him from afar. I’m still debating whether or not the trailer should spoil the pick by having him turn down Catherine Zeta-Jones in the trailer already. There should be a fight or some tug-o-war somewhere along the way to keep the suspense going.

The trailer has a bunch of funny and mostly touching moments that are kid and family friendly. Gerald Butler recording himself when a phone call from a credit card collection agency cuts him off and the camera pans out to show a half dressed guy – top half in suit and lower half still in his underwear. The touching moments are “aw” and romantic moments that can bring a lot of women to happy tears, like the scene with him trying to confess his love to Jessical Biel who was about to get married to another guy.

Playing for Keeps brings Gerald Butler back to his money making genre, romantic comedies, with a touching and loving story directed by the director, Gabriele Muccino, who have touched many hearts with the Pursuit of Happyness.

Playing for Keeps is scheduled to open on December 7, 2012. It stars Gerald Butler, Jessical Bielf, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Uma Thurman, Dennis Quaid, Judy Greer, James Tupper, Aisha Kabia, Grant Goodman, Noah Lomax and others.
