Gerard Butler hits rock bottom – even after the execrable The Ugly Truth – as a Scottish former footballer who is divorced from his soppy wife (Jessica Biel) and longs to connect with his son. So he agrees to coach his child's soccer (it's set in small-town USA) team, whereupon a legion of mothers (Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones) hit on the smirking lunk. Quite possibly the worst film of the decade thus far.
