The Game Plan Reviews
Let's start with the Rock's new, and absolutely NOT improved, style. Dwayne Johnson is trying to be the family movie guy, who makes kids laugh and parents go "Awwwww!" Well it's really not working! Seeing him play a soft hearted football player was stupid, and flat out disturbing. Also, here's a tip Dwayne! Family movie characters don;t get these looks where they look like a robot out of a terminator film!
The little girl was worse. I don;t care if she's cute or not, she was more annoying then watching Glee for 5 days straight without water, food or sleep. She was an EXTREMELY bad actor, especially when she tries to be serious, which gives me no choice but to yell out a spontaneous "YEAH, I'M ACTING!!"
And then they had to drag Kiera Sedgewick into this nonsense. That's right, Kiera Sedgewick, from The Closer, actually makes an appearence in this film as The Rock's agent.
The humor was god awfully bad too. Like when the attorney is eating a Fanny's Burger and farts. I guess the director of The Gameplan, is one of those idiots who thinks farting is funny. And then there's the scene where thr cok is covered in bubbles and looks like a clown, only to find out his football is bedazzled? What am I suppoused to say? Oh yeah! Hahahahaha...No, no I just can;t say it.
Bottom line, this movie is terrible, stupid, predictable, unrealistic and stupid. Yes I said stupid twice, that's how bad it is.
Gridiron Gang star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson picks up the pigskin once again for this sports-themed family comedy concerning a football superstar who abandons the gridiron to answer the call of fatherhood. Joe Kingman (Johnson) was a star quarterback destined for greatness; not only is the Boston-based team he plays for well on their way to the championships, but he's got all the money and fame that a man could want out of life. A perpetual bachelor whose one brief marriage ended many moons ago, Kingman is stunned to learn that a long-forgotten youthful fling had more permanent consequences than he ever anticipated. Now, just as his career is set to blow up bigger than ever, this perpetual bachelor learns that he has a seven-year-old daughter named Peyton (Madison Pettis). So how does a lifelong jock who's used to partying all night and dropping 20-yard bombs all day adjust to a life of ballet classes, Barbie dolls, and afternoon play dates? Whatever road he chooses to take, it certainly won't be easy, especially since his ruthless, goal-oriented agent, Stella (Kyra Sedgwick), would rather see her client scoring touchdowns than cementing familial bonds.
Dwayne Johnson isn't the greatest of actors, but let that pass and instead enjoy Madison Pettis who acts very well. The story works, and the way it plays out works. This is a family movie and does what it's supposed to do; entertain the whole family. I'd say you basically get what you expect, nothing more nothing less. It's a cute movie, predictable and sentimental, but sometimes that's perfectly OK!
But keep watching because before you know it the movie actually pans out into a real funny comedy with a lot of true real-life emotions and occurences backing up what it has to offer.
There's action, comedy, drama, excitement. Something for the kids and something for the adults. It's a great movie when it's all said and done.
The Rock steals the show and the girl is not too bad once she grows on you like she had to her dad in the movie.
