Playing for Keeps

(PG-13) ★☆☆☆☆

This romantic comedy follows onetime Scottish soccer star George (Gerard Butler), who finds himself down and nearly out. He’s moved to suburban Virginia to be close to his preteen son. George’s ex (Jessica Biel) is engaged to be remarried. But you never know! Maybe she’ll get back with the vaguely unsympathetic protagonist. The women in the film exist to prop up Butler’s fabulousness. Not a lot to like here.

RIMES REASONS: I’m generally not a fan of any country music artist that Us Weekly has heard of. But even I have to cop to my appreciation of LeAnn Rimes, who plays the LVH Dec. 13-15 ($54-$77). Regardless of how I feel about her material—fair to middling, at least what I’ve heard of it—there’s no denying that she’s got magnificent pipes. You can draw a line directly from Rimes’ sweet, gently quavering soprano to Patsy Cline’s unique singing voice.
