    Happening today: There’s only one movie opening in wide release this week (what is it with Hollywood these days?). That film is “Playing for Keeps,” a PG-13 romantic comedy starring Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Dennis Quaid and Noah Lomax. Some of the many limited-release films opening this week look intriguing (“Hyde Park on Hudson,” R, starring Bill Murray and Laura Linney; “Lay the Favorite,” R, starring Rebecca Hall, Bruce Willis, Vince Vaughn and Catherine Zeta-Jones), so check your newspaper for listings.
