The Game Plan
Dwayne Johnson scores again (or fumbles?!) on this list! In The Game Plan, Johnson plays a pro footballer who discovers he has a little girl that he never knew about. The issue with this flick is it never really knows what it wants to be.
This 1999 comedy is hardly funny and truly not even a solid account of football on the college level -- even for a farce. Scott Bakula is a 34-year-old college student who becomes the leader of his Texas school football team. They even get a female kicker to join, played by Kathy Ireland. I tell you, this thing is a mess. Poor Robert Loggia, he deserves better than this.
