Everyone involved deserves a script with more wit, originality and sense of purpose.Chicago ReaderDecember 14, 2012
Dennis Quaid hammers away at a nothing role as Thurman's husband, an adulterous alpha dog; it's nearly identical to the one he played earlier this year in What to Expect When You're Expecting, but who's counting?New York Magazine/VultureDecember 10, 2012
These are actors due a break. Unfortunately, this comedy-drama about a kids' soccer coach boinking a bunch of desperate housewives doesn't appear to be it.Richard Roeper.comDecember 07, 2012
Smarmy. Dopey. Sloppy. Lazy. Creepy. Tone-deaf. Predictable. Embarrassing. Lousy.Village VoiceDecember 07, 2012
I'll long be haunted by Dennis Quaid's manic performance as a palm-greasing dad who seems to be under the influence of bath salts ...Entertainment WeeklyDecember 07, 2012
Playing for Keeps takes place in a tonally incoherent universe, constantly shifting between rom-com farce and mawkish family drama.Independent Online (South Africa)March 28, 2016
Sadly, a smattering of heart-warming moments fails to redeem what is ultimately a disastrous offside shot at a rom-com.Philadelphia WeeklyMay 03, 2015

No matter what kind of drab, derivative fluff you prefer, this exceptionally toothless comedy has something to offer.Movies With ButterMarch 18, 2013
All the characters and their motivations are banal at best and half drawn at worst, leading to the question: why didn't this end up on The Hallmark Channel starring TV's hot-tail of the moment?Cinemalogue.comMarch 05, 2013
