Movie Reviews: Playing For Keeps, Deadfall

WASHINGTON (WUSA) --Our entertainment insider Jennice Fuentes talked to us on Friday about two movies opening this weekend.

The first one, in wide release, is "Playing For Keeps" starring Gerard Butler as a former soccer star. It's another romantic comedy for Butler, and we ask Fuentes whether that's the best use of his talents?

In this film, Butler's character tries to rebuild a relationship with his son by coaching his son's soccer team. Get Fuentes' take on the movie above.

Another movie, "Deadfall," is only playing at one local theater this weekend, but Fuentes says we should be on the lookout for it in wider release. She explains why in the video.

If you're unfamiliar with Deadfall, it stars Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde as brother and sister "bad guys." AWashington Times reviewer hates this movie for it's dialogue, "stilted" performances and "muddled" direction.
