Game Plan, The

Endearing, though slightly implausible story of an egotistical football star (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, proving a surprisingly congenial comic) whose party-oriented lifestyle is disrupted by the arrival on his doorstep of the 7-year-old daughter he never knew he had (remarkably self-assured Madison Pettis). This event complicates his pursuit of the championship and his relationship with his agent (Kyra Sedgwick), as well as with some of his teammates and friends (Morris Chestnut, Hayes MacArthur and Brian White), but may also lead to romance with his daughter's no-nonsense ballet teacher (Roselyn Sanchez). Director Andy Fickman's film has great appeal for kids, though parents may be grateful for the presence of Sedgwick, whose tart character helps to keep the sweetness level from inducing diabetes. One instance of scatological humor and two mildly crass words may combine with scenes of a lost child and an allergic reaction to preclude very young children. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
