Gridiron Gang star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson picks up the pigskin once again for this sports-themed family comedy concerning a football superstar who abandons the gridiron to answer the call of fatherhood. Joe Kingman (Johnson) was a star quarterback destined for greatness; not only is the Boston-based team he plays for well on their way to the championships, but he's got all the money and fame that a man could want out of life. A perpetual bachelor whose one brief marriage ended many moons ago, Kingman is stunned to learn that a long-forgotten youthful fling had more permanent… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Johnson's amiable performance makes this watchable for the target audience; namely sporty daddies and spoiled little girls primed to assimilate their lives into the Disney brand."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"Johnson's a good actor, but it would take the ghost of Laurence Olivier to convince us that a grown man could legitimately fall for this brat."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, L.A. Weekly
"In many ways, The Game Plan is really just a big-budget, feature-film version of a Disney Channel Original Movie."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Somebody give Dwayne Johnson a decent role, please. Sure this is relatively inoffensive, but he's a great screen presence and deserves better."
‑ Daniel Etherington, Film4
"Watchable comedy that manages to overcome its formulaic plot and cliche-laden script, largely thanks to Johnson being such a likeable comic actor."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Please: No Game Plan 2."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Generic to the point where it might be called Sport-Themed Disney Girly Movie All Rights Reserved."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"The Rock scores in cute (if predictable) comedy."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"Despite its cheesy story, The Game Plan has one major trump card: The Rock is actually quite good."
‑ Anna Smith, BBC.com
"Despite its almost painfully silly predictability, this film somehow manages to be engaging and rather enjoyable, thanks mainly to The Rock's on-screen charisma."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"It's what I like to call an amnesia movie. Six months from now, if someone asks me about The Game Plan, I'll be hard-pressed to remember what it's about or who's in it."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"As polished and innocuous as a spin around the park on Dumbo."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"A barf-inducer. A hurl-promoter. A projectile-vomit-stimulator."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Even The Rock's immense charisma cannot save this predicatable fare."
‑ Simon Braund, Empire Magazine
"...it ultimately seems unlikely that the movie will appeal to viewers outside of its target demographic (ie pre-pubescent tots)."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
