The Game Plan

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 consequences than he ever anticipated. Now, just as his career is set to blow up bigger than ever, this perpetual bachelor learns that he has a seven-year-old daughter named Peyton (Madison Pettis). So how does a lifelong jock who's used to partying all night and dropping 20-yard bombs all day adjust to a life of ballet classes, Barbie dolls, and afternoon play dates? Whatever road he chooses to take, it certainly won't be easy, especially since his ruthless, goal-oriented agent, Stella, would rather see her client scoring touchdowns than cementing familial bonds.

Megan's Movie Review:
I am beginning to really like Dwayne Johnson as an actor. To me, at first I didn't think he was that great of an actor. But now, I actually look forward to seeing his movies. He did a really good job in this movie portraying a conceited guy who is obsessed with him. And how he was a terrible dad at first, but he ends up being a good dad who would do anything for his kid. This is a good family film and I would recommend seeing it.

Let me know if you saw this


Before the United States entered World War I, young Americans went to France to be fighter pilots, joining the Lafayette Escadrille. This fictional version follows a laconic Texas rancher, an eager Nebraska kid, a Black boxer already in France, and a New York swell, as they arrive green for training, get their baptism by fire when German planes ambush them on their first mission, and graduate to heroics. Rawlings, the Texan, falls in love with a young woman he meets at a bordello. Keeping their eyes on them are Captain Thenault and Cassidy, the resident ace, who keeps a pet lion. Can the boys measure up? (Source: IMDB)

Megan's Movie Review:
Based on a true story, I really liked it! It is kind of a slow movie at some parts, but it was really good. I really liked the romance and the girl was really cute & sweet. The war/plane fighting was entertaining and I can't imagine having to go to war and fight the way they did. The black guy was pretty cool and it was too bad that he couldn't fly for the US Airforce. I definitely liked the fact that it was based on a true story though. The ending was sad because he never found the girl after the war. But sometimes life isn't fair right?

Megan's Movie Review:
This was better than I thought it would be. I actually was unsure about even renting this movie because I thought it would be too little kiddish for me. The movie was actually pretty funny and cute. I really liked the main character, he was cute for being a nerd haha! This is something I would recommend to families with kids and even the parents would enjoy it too. The only thing is that it made me feel more sick to my stomach because I'm pregnant and I couldn't stand watching all the nasty food fall out of the sky. I just had to ignore it and not think about the food so literally.

Megan's Movie Review:
I was so disappointed with this movie!!!!!! This is based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks and I have never read it but I should've known it was going to be sad. This could've been a good movie (3 1/2 stars, maybe) up until the end and when you find out what happened. At the very beginning of the movie John gets shot and is thinking about coins and goes into detail about why he was remembering them. Then he says the last thing he thought about was 'you'. I assumed, and as I'm sure most people did, that it was about the girl that we would soon get to know in the movie. Come to find out, it is about his dad who has Asperger's and he never had a good relationship with him. Then in the middle of the movie, his dad has a stroke and ends up dying, but before he dies, John read this letter to him. He tells his dad what he thought about when he was shot and that was coins, and the last thing he thought about was his dad. That was the only part I liked in the movie, because he finally understood why his father was the way he was, and he loved him, and he told him that he loved him. Now, between John and Savannah, it could've been a really good love story! But because they were separated for so long, she ends up finding another guy and gets married to him. It's not who you would expect, and I definitely don't think she should've married him and I thought her reasoning was dumb. It was more like she pitied him and married this man. Stupid... The guy she married was ugly and old. John was perfect for her and he loved her more than anything. He would've waited for her. Poor John... Also (sorry I know I've blabbed a lot on this movie), the man she ends up marrying dies in the end, and John and Savannah see each other a few years later. That's where the movie ends. So you don't know if they end up together in the future. Its just left with them seeing each other and hugging and that's it! What kind of ending is that?!

Megan's Movie Review:
I really liked this movie a lot! It had a lot of action to it, and some good fight scenes! At first, I didn't know how Jake Gyllenhaal would do in this kind of a movie, but he turned out to do really good. He was like a little Aladdin with all his cool moves and escaping all the bad guys. There were some parts in the movie that were pretty cheesy. One part for instance was when it was at the end of the movie, and they are fighting the bad guys, Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton stop in the middle and have a smooch! I'm like... okay, is this really the time?! They should not be kissing right now! She kind of bugged me a little in her acting. It almost seemed too dramatic for me. But whatever, the whole storyline was good, and it was very entertaining. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It's definitely one of my new favorites.

Megan's Movie Review:
This was a good movie. I wasn't terribly in awe about it. I did like the story because it is one that you don't normally hear about. But see, before I went and saw this I wasn't too thrilled to see it in the first place because I didn't feel like they needed to make another Robin Hood. That was before I found out it was the story of before Robin Hood became who he was. I love the movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves with Kevin Costner and I didn't feel like it was old enough to have a new one made. But back to this movie, it was good and I liked it. I would go see the sequel if they make another one. It was definitely more serious but it had some pretty good battle scenes. I don't know why, I wish I liked it more, and I tried going into this movie with an open mind, but I still like the old Robin Hood better (even though it was a different story).
