Item description for The Game Plan (Widescreen Edition) by Andy Fickman, Dwayne Johnson & Madison Pettis...

In this hilarious and heartwarming family comedy, one of the sport's toughest players ever takes on his biggest challenge yet - fatherhood! A superstar with an ego bigger than a football field, Joe Kingman (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) is getting ready for a run at the big championship game when the 8-year-old daughter he never knew existed shows up at his not-so-family-friendly bachelor pad. As the big game gets closer, he begins to realize the most meaningful win he can achieve is the heart of the one little fan who counts the most.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Game Plan (Widescreen Edition)?

funny movie  Feb 23, 2008
A funny family movie. A little corney,and predictable but, it's entertaining. Got to love the Rock! The little girl in the movie is cute. My preteen son loves the movie.
terrific movie for all ages  Feb 22, 2008
This was a great movie for our entire family, even the grandparents! The Rock is so endearing! and Madison Pettis is soooooo adorable! You know what's going to happen, but it is such a good movie. The scenes with the football team really warm you heart! You will love this movie. Even my husband loved it! :)
Good "kid" movie  Feb 22, 2008
A little "cheesy" for adults, but good kid movie. Humorous side of a very serious situation that happens way too often in real life. Good, but predictable ending. This movie could probably help kids relate that are in situations where they do not know one of their parents. It shows that things can work out for a happy ending.
Great movie  Feb 19, 2008
Fun for the whole family. One of the best movies The Rock has ever made.
so-so family comedy  Feb 18, 2008

For even the most pumped-up action movie superstar, there's nothing like appearing in a family-friendly vehicle opposite a scene-stealing tyke to bring a touch of humanity to one`s image. Indeed, such a career choice has become a virtual right-of-passage for these bodybuilder-turned-actor-types as they endeavor to diversify their portfolios and pad their resumes. We've already had Arnold Schwarzenegger and Vin Diesel doing the daddy-day-care bit - in "Kindergarten Cop" and "The Pacifier," respectively - and now we have Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson making like a wet-nurse in "The Game Plan," a warm-and-fuzzy piece of generic fluff designed to be enjoyed and disposed of in roughly equal measure.

Joe Kingman is a professional quarterback with an ego and a paycheck as massive as his ginormous biceps. His free-swinging bachelor lifestyle consists of a swanky penthouse pad, endless parties, a stable of gorgeous women, and a Mercedes SLR McLaren worth a cool half a mill or so, give or take a few thou. The problem is that Joe doesn't seem to realize just how lonely and empty his life really is until one fine day when an 8-year-old bundle-of-joy named Peyton shows up quite literally on his doorstep to inform him that she is the long-lost daughter he never knew he had. Suddenly, this international playboy is thrust into the wholly alien world of ballet recitals, bubble baths and parental responsibility.

Like the aforementioned movies that preceded it, "The Game Plan" is based on the premise that there is nothing quite so hilarious and aww-evoking as the sight of a steroid-pumped behemoth getting in touch with his nurturing nature. Indeed, it's the incongruity between the macho façade and the tenderhearted actions that provides the comic tension necessary to make such stories work. And "The Game Plan" certainly milks the formula for all it's worth. The predictable storyline is made up of equal parts lowbrow slapstick and push-button sentimentality, as Joe ultimately sees the errors of his ways and becomes a much better man for his experience.

Though no great shakes as an actor, Johnson has always displayed a certain self-deprecating charm on screen and he uses it to good effect here. As the precocious moppet, Madison Pettis manages to keep the bathos and saccharine down to an acceptable minimum - which is more than can be said for the movie itself, actually, which ladles the syrup on pretty darn thick in the closing stretches.

Nevertheless, this is, I suppose, a tolerable time-waster - provided you`re part of the right audience demographic for this kind of thing, that is.
