You know you want to see 'The Game Plan,' and that's okay

Posted on


Becool_lFact: If I wasn’t going to be enjoying a PBR (Professional Bull Riders) event this Saturday night, I would be enjoying a sneak peek of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s new Disney movie, The Game Plan, which officially hits theaters Sept. 28.

This isn’t my crap addiction talking. This is me genuinely being drawn to a movie that stars The Rock as a pro quarterback, who suddenly learns that he has a daughter and a dog that doesn’t mind wearing a tutu. I know how the story will go — the daughter will ruin his life, then become the love of it — and for once, that’s part of the charm. In fact, I’m pretty sure I will ovulate if The Rock, at any point, cuddles with his daughter in a bed that’s too small for him. Or, if the girl gets lost or injured and he tells her how much he would’ve missed her. (Bring it, Disney. Bring it!)

So who else is tempted to see The Game Plan? And who still finds themselves pleasantly surprised each time they’re reminded that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can actually act? (See Be Cool, pictured, where he played a scene-stealing gay bodyguard/aspiring thespian).
