Gerard Butler's charisma does much - if ultimately not enough overall - for this comedy-drama, as he plays a former soccer star whose personal and professional lives have taken downturns.
He tries to put both back on track as he attempts to win back his ex-wife (Jessica Biel) while becoming the coach of his son's sports team. In the latter role, he catches the eyes of several soccer moms (Catherine Zeta-Jones, Uma Thurman, Judy Greer). Dennis Quaid also appears. DVD extras: two "making-of"documentaries; deleted scenes. ** (PG-13: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
