Carlin's Review of Playing for Keeps
Playing for Keeps(2012)
I usually try to find something to say about each movie I see and review. The best thing I can say about this movie is, "Thank God it's only an hour and forty five minutes long. I hate story lines that are as predictable as the sunrise or sunset, and you can see this one coming from a mile away.
There are some very well-known, recognizable faces in the cast including Gerard Butler, Dennis Quaid, Uma Thurman, and Jessica Beil, but even they aren't enough to make this sappy lover's triangle make sense. I'm not even going to bother going into more details. Everyone was talking about how bad it was as we were leaving the theater. This is a flop almost as big as Gigli. Watch the trailer and decide for yourself, but don't say I didn't warn you.
