Playing for Keeps: ShockYa Movie Review

ShockYa: Romantic comedies usually fare best when the main characters fully understand their need for redemption and change if they want to be with the person they love. Proving they can move beyond their past mistakes is also an important aspect to prove their worthiness of love. Unfortunately, the new romantic comedy ‘Playing for Keeps,’ which was helmed by Gabrielle Muccino, who’s mainly known for directing dramas and television series, fails to feature fully developed main characters driven by their experience. While the main character, George, does long for his old life with his ex-wife, the lack of explanation of their separation fails to provide any emotional drive for the two, or reasoning on why they should get back together.

The story is too old to be commented.
