The Game Plan

(2007)

"The Game Plan" tells the story of rugged superstar quarterback Joe Kingman (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson), whose Boston-based team is chasing a championship. A 'serial bachelor', Kingman is living the ultimate fantasy: he's rich, famous and the life of the party. But this dream is suddenly sacked for a loss when he discovers the 7-year-old daughter (newcomer Madison Pettis) he never knew he had - the product of a last fling before parting years ago with his young wife. Now, during the most important time in his career, he must figure out how to juggle his parties, practices and dates with the newfound ballet classes, bedtime stories and dolls that come with his daughter. Equally perplexed is his hard-edged mega-agent, Stella (Kyra Sedgwick), herself without a parental bone in her body. Despite the often hilarious misadventures that come with being a new father, Joe discovers that's there's more to life than money, endorsements and thousands of adoring fans: the love and care of one very special small fan is the only thing that matters.

Box Office Beat Down: ‘The Game Plan’ Scores Another Touchdown with $16 Million

The Farrelly Brothers didn't manage the same successful run as their Disney cohorts. Their new comedy The Heartbreak Kid landed in second place during its first week of release with $14 million. Does this mean that Ben Stiller's hot star is cooling a bit? Its tough to say at this point. This could be a word of mouth success if enough people deem it worthy to talk about on Monday morning. The film is the Farelly's first R rated outing since Me, Myself & Irene and isn't exactly fit for kids, which could account for its less than stellar numbers at the box office. This is a film that will find most of its fans on the home video circuit. When all is said and done, this will turn out to be another successful film for Peter and Bobby.

Not fairing as well in its first week of release was the Fox Walden outing The Seeker: The Dark is Rising. It only made $3.7 million and is being considered a flop. But what do you expect? The film hasn't exactly been getting the type of hype a Harry Potter film might garner, and its source material is not very well known. Susan Cooper's fantasy series came out in the late sixties and its not exactly required reading in Junior High.
