Dwayne the Rock
Johnson stars as Joe Kingman, a quarterback for a Boston-based
football team who has the perfect life or so he thought. Living the
high life as a bachelor, Joe or “The King” is rich and famous and
when a young girl, Peyton (Madison Pettis) turns up at his door
step, stating that she is his daughter, his dream life suddenly
For Joe, this is
the worst time that this could happen as he is opening up a new
restaurant and is hoping to gain a world championship ring with his
team that has eluded him for years.
Dubbed a “bad
parent” for leaving his daughter behind at his restaurant opening,
Stella (Kyra Sedgwick), his agent goes into damage control and turns
this “bad parent” into “#1 dad”.
The star of the
movie is Madison and Dwayne who bounce of each other quite well,
especially when former wrestling star “The Rock” performs ballet
with his daughter as his team watches on...classic stuff.
The comedy of The
Game Plan is perfect for all ages and even contains a few curve
balls for the older adults that children will not get. It’s amazing

the end of the day, this feel good movie is predictable but is still
enjoyable and contains some great moving scenes from laughs to
The disc also
features some great special features from interesting featurettes to
a great bloopers reel with Marv Albert which rounds this DVD up
nicely. Great video quality and decent audio quality, there is
little to complain about The Game Plan.
