Game Plan, The (film)

Game Plan, The (film) A famous Boston football quarterback, Joe Kingman, is shocked one day to find an 8-year-old girl, Peyton, at the door of his elegant bachelor pad, claiming she is his daughter and left there by her mother who is in Africa for a month. Now, just as his career is soaring, Joe must learn to juggle his old lifestyle of parties, practices, and dates with supermodels while tackling the new challenges of ballet, bedtime stories, and baby dolls—all without fumbling. Equally perplexed is his hard-edged mega-agent, Stella Peck. But, as the championship grows nearer, Joe is about to realize that the game that truly matters has nothing to do with money, endorsements, or even touchdowns—it is all about the really tough stuff: patience, teamwork, selflessness…and winning the heart of the one little fan who turns out to count the most.
