Will Jamie Foxx Rule the Kingdom or Does The Rock Have the Game Plan?

Posted on Friday, September 28th, 2007 4:25 PM by Scott Jentsch

The two major releases this weekend are Jamie Foxx's "The Kingdom" and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in "The Game Plan."

The first is a heavy drama about a group of FBI investigators on the scene of a bomb blast that killed hundreds of Americans in a civilian compound inside Saudi Arabia. Jennifer Garner, Chris Cooper, Jason Bateman, and Jeremy Piven round out a cast that takes the realm of the CSI TV shows to a whole new level. This one is my pick for the weekend.

The other is a saccharine comedy about a manly football player who has to bring things down a notch when he is reunited with a 7-year-old daughter he never knew he had. While this "action hero turned all gentle" was funny when Arnold Schwarzenegger did it in "Kindergarten Cop," that movie was 17 years ago and the storyline has been rehashed several times since then. Something tells me that The Rock doesn't have the range to pull it off, but maybe the movie's target audience won't care.

Other minor releases include "Feast of Love" and "Trade." Our Featured Movie Critic liked the former, and didn't think as much of the latter, but you may want to make up your own mind by checking out the information we have for each.
