Catherine Zeta-Jones and Gerard Butler in Playing for KeepsPLAYING FOR KEEPS

In director Gabriele Muccino’s dramatic comedy Playing for Keeps, Gerard Butler portrays a former star athlete who hopes to reconnect with his ex-wife and son by coaching the kid’s pee-wee soccer team, and who is consequently forced to (try to) resist the advances of a trio of beautiful, aggressive, lascivious soccer moms who can’t keep their hands off him. This, in the language of Hollywood screenwriters, is what is known as “a problem.”

Russell Crowe in Robin HoodROBIN HOOD

As mood lighteners go, so does that gag. And so, for the most part, does the movie.

Michael Sheen and Frank Langella in Frost/NixonFROST/NIXON

My annual challenge in composing a list of the year’s best movies almost never lies in deciding what to list. It lies in deciding when to list.
