The Game Plan | 2007 | PG | - 2.3.0

A celebrated quarterback (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) is enjoying life as a committed bachelor, but finds himself thrown into daddy duty when a little girl shows up on his doorstep claiming to be his daughter. After stumbling through a few mistakes that land him on the front pages of the tabloids, he realizes that the most important thing in his life is his daughter. Also with Madison Pettis, Roselyn Sanchez, Kyra Sedgwick, Morris Chestnut and Brian J. White. Directed by Andy Fickman. [1:50]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A man is bare-chested after a massage and he flexes his pectorals for a woman. A man is shown bare-chested and wearing ballet tights, a man is bare-chested while working out in a couple of scenes, and a man is bare-chested while sitting in a bath of ice. There are several scenes where women wear low-cut dresses and tops that reveal cleavage.
 A man and a woman kiss, and a woman kisses a man on the lips.
 Men and woman dance at a party. A woman smacks a man on the buttocks and admires his muscles while teaching him moves for a dance recital. Several women gather around a man and act flirtatiously.
 A girl pushes a "romance" button on a remote control and the lights dim and romantic music plays.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
