A classic for all the family.

This film is a must for everyone. This film is a wonderful blend of light comedy and the best football (soccer) action ever committed to celluloid. Despite the fact it stars an all-star cast, it has hardly any martial arts in the film (apart from one absolutely hilarious tango-fight scene!).

Yuen Biao stars as a an acrobatic country hick who accidentally injures a wealthy socialite during a hilarious pre-credits competition. After running away, he joins a soccer team who discovers his talents, and subsequently joins the team. Despite the martial arts adept cast, there is no virtually no martial arts in the film. In fact all the action choreography, provided by the fantastic Yuen Woo Ping stunt team, goes on the absolutely exhilarating, jaw dropping, soccer games. Yuen Biao, as usual, provides a wonderful performance while Dick Wei also provides a great portrayal as the arrogant soccer player villain. Moon Lee is also quite brilliant and beautiful as the sister of Yuen Biao's friend.

This is a treat for all the family. Unlike most family films, filled with too much sentimental rubbish with jokes only for the little kids. This film has no profanity, no blood and guts, no sex, yet it is a fantastic underrated classic for all the family. They don't make them like this anymore.
