PLAYING FOR KEEPS is a US comedy romance in which a former Celtic football star, who finished his playing career in America, dreams of becoming a television sports pundit but in the meantime has to settle for coaching a children's soccer team.

Sex

Occasional moderate sex references include a woman telling a man she is imagining him "on top" of her, as well as references to sleeping together.

Language

There is moderate bad language ('wankers'), as well as milder terms including 'balls', 'bitched', 'bloody', 'bollocks', 'crap', 'God', 'screwed', 'shit' and 'son of a 'bitch'. There is a self-directed use of the term 'spastic' by a woman but the film as a whole doesn't endorse discriminatory language or behaviour.

Violence

A brief gory image appears on a television screen showing a horror film, in which we see a reptilian monster plunging a claw into a man's chest with resulting sight of blood but no discernible injury detail.
