About this Article
Gabriele Muccino's "Playing For Keeps" (originally called "Playing the Field") wants to be a misty-eyed father/son reunion story, and a sensitive romance, and a thrilling sports drama reaffirming that losers can become winners if they're lucky enough to have a hunky coach with a Scottish accent. But this soccer film spends most of its time comically offsides and dramatically out of bounds.
