Foosball epic. Believe it...

Author: blackxmas from Georgia
27 May 2001

So we're sitting around at work watching one of our favorite bad sports movies THE BREAK, when C.G. exclaims "They should make a foosball movie!" I think for a minute and go "Jesus. They did. And Leif Garrett was in it. I saw it on cable in the 80's. It was called LONG SHOT and it had this really bad song that went 'I'm lookin' for a long shot to come through...'". So we hit the IMDB to make sure I was right, then we head over to eBay and get a copy (the Thorn EMI original although there is a retitled version at Amazon called LONGSHOT KIDS). A week and a half later, it comes and we watch it. And it's as bad as we figured (and as I remembered). So it's a keeper. It's a foosball spectacular comedy drama about kids who try to make $50,000 playing in a Lake Tahoe foosball national championship. There's laughs, and loves, and non-stop foosball action. It's boring, badly acted, and almost unwatchable. Yet we love it. There's no hope for us. We can't defend ourselves or this trash. We just urge you to watch it.

And Leif Garrett's in it. The foosball champion of the world. Lookin' for a long shot to come through....
