It’s kind of funny when you look at the headliners in the new romantic comedy PLAYING THE FIELD. If you saw this cast lineup in 1999 (after ENTRAPMENT), then you’d probably be really excited to see Catherine Zeta-Jones’ name. But if you saw this in2006 (after 300), then you’d be more excited for Gerard Butler. Now? Well, you’re either not excited at all or you’re most looking forward to seeing Judy Greer break out of her supporting roles and into leading lady status. It’s funny how much changes in Hollywood in five years.
The film is about a former pro soccer player (Gerard Butler) that ends up coaching his son’s soccer team, but gets in trouble when he gets involved with several of the local soccer moms. Along with Zeta-Jones and Greer, the film stars Uma Thurman and Jessica Biel. Gabriele Muccino is directing the film, who also directed SEVEN POUNDS. PLAYING THE FIELD hits theaters on March 9th, 2012.
