Joe Kingman is the hottest quarterback in football with the high profile lifestyle to match. But his life gets turned upside down upon the arrival of eight-year-old Peyton, the daughter he never knew he had, on his doorstep. Despite his first failed attempts at parenting, Joe soon learns what it takes to be a dad to a girl who's as stubborn as he is. But with the “big game” looming over his head, can Joe find the right balance to raise his daughter and keep his mind on the game? Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Game Plan”.
• At the very beginning of the movie, during the football game, Joe Kingman get the ball. When the announcer says “he drops back in the pocket”, the overhead view shows Joe is a foot or two past the twenty-five yard line. He hesitates for a moment and then runs. But the overhead view of Joe when he starts to run shows he’s closer to the fifteen yard line.
• When Peyton arrives at Joe’s place, he calls his manager, Stella Peck to “take care of it”. The side view of Stella and Joe when he’s explaining “we were crazy in love…” shows Stella has the letter from Sara Kelly in her right hand and it’s flat on the kitchen counter. The scene cuts to a rear view of Stella (front view of Joe) and then a front view of Stella when she says “OK” where she’s now holding the letter up, halfway off the counter. It’s flat on the counter again when the scene cuts back to the side view.
• Joe shows Peyton her new room. She runs to the bed and right before she climbs on it, she puts her drawing pad against the side of the pillow. When Peyton jumps on the bed, the drawing pad slides down, where it’s almost flat against the bedspread. It cuts to a front view when Joes sits down beside her and the drawing pad is sitting upright, on the front of the pillow.
