Audience Reviews for The Game Plan

  • Jun 12, 2015
    Disney teams up with The Rock for the lighthearted family comedy The Game Plan. When NFL quarterback Joe Kingman is sought out by his 8-year-old daughter (who he didn't know about) he takes her in and finds out that being a parent is harder than it seems. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Madison Pettis have real good chemistry together, and both have a natural charisma that lights up the screen. Also, the comedy is well-done (for the most part) and delivers a lot of laughs. However, Disney sanitizes the film a little too much and tries to make it more of a fairy tale. Still, The Game Plan is entertaining and fun, and can be enjoyed by all ages.

    the usual disney story of the guy not caring until he realises he actually does care. the rock should move on from these roles because he is dangerously close to falling back to the wwe.

    Come on Dwayne, stop doing crappy kids movies. Joe Kingman (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) is a famous quaterback who is living the dream life, but gets a unexpected surprise when a daughter he never met named Payton (Madison Pettis) and she turns his life upside down. This is just a simple movie just for kids. This movie is something kids will love, but adults will fall asleep. I really disliked this movie.

    It's not a horrible movie but if something is bad, has a simple story and a bit confusing and disasters of the daughter of The Rock is not very good.
