“Playing For Keeps”: Trailer For New Soccer Themed Movie Coming This Holiday Season [VIDEO]

It’s not often that a movie has a plot that involves soccer, especially when it’s a romance film. But “Playing For Keeps,” starring Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Dennis Quaid, does. Not only that but the main star of the film played by Butler gets a shot in the movie at becoming a soccer pundit for ESPN.

In the film, Butler’s character played for Celtic before coming to the States where he ended up coaching a local kids soccer team. It looks like one of those films that’s loosely based on soccer that won’t satisfy the hardcore fans. But it could be a film worth going to see with your spouse or loved one.

  1. what a load of rubbish...

    How does this get a post but the Dream on: Journey/Wembley FC series on NBC sports hasn't? LOL

    Just watched the episode with Matrin Keown, Claudio Caniggia, Dave Seaman and Brian McBride all giving Webley FC coaching

    1. Dust, it's poor PR by NBC. I haven't heard one word from NBC about it. And I haven't read anything about it online. One reader mentioned something about it a couple of months ago, but I don't tune into NBC Sports unless there's a major event like the Olympics or a major game like US vs Mexico.

      The Gaffer

      1. It was me that mentioned it a few moths back, I agree it is poor promotion on NBC's part, whats new there.

        I heard about it on talk sport a few months ago, they had some interviews around the time Wembley FC were playing in the FA cup with a Bunch of ex pro's like Graeme Le Seaux, David Seaman. crazy squad list. It's a good show, Far better that the Being Liverpool, i encourage you to check it out.
