This little comedy is set in a small factory come halfway home, employing only handicapped people. Ollie Rennie is the boss and sometime minder of all his workers. He employees Pat Cannizzaro to help get all his workers into some sort of sport, and Pat just happens to be a soccer teacher. He forms a team and tries to take them all the way, with some funny results. Written by

I caught this movie today at midday when I was just lazing around on my day off. Middday movies can sometimes be such a nice surprise and this one definitely was! It's got it all drama, laughs, happiness and sadness. It touches on so many issues to do with the handicapped community which many "normal" people wouldn't understand (such as falling in love). It has a really interesting plot also, you watch as the two main characters (who are hilarious) battle to save the workshop which has become a sanctuary to the handicapped people who spend time there. All the characters are really like likable and it is hard to not really hope everything works out for them. I think it's really sad that more people won't get the chance to watch this gem (you would have trouble probably finding this at your local DVD store believe me.) I watched it all the way through and I'm really happy that I did.
