Sensuality: Mothers from the soccer team throw themselves at the coach, who does not tell them "no" in some situations. One mother lets herself into the coach's house and is waiting for him in bed in her underwear.
Language: Some expletives are used when characters are mad or frustrated. Some innuendos are used with kids around.
Relationships: The story really shows a father trying to connect with his son without knowing how.
A father-son relationship saves "Playing for Keeps" from being a run-of-the-mill romantic comedy. There are quite a few well-known actors who have small parts in the film. It seems like a lot of the budget went to the stars and not the script, however. The film jumps around a bit and doesn't move well. "Playing for Keeps" is for ages 15-plus.
