Trivia

The phrase "up 'n' under" (a catchphrase of real-life rugby commentator Eddie Waring) is a term used in rugby. An "up 'n' under" is a high kick angled so that the catcher, while looking skyward at the descending ball, receives at the same time as the ball, one or more chasing players travelling at speed, into his abdomen. The intention is to dislodge the ball, or even persuade the catcher to not bother making the catch. See more »

The Shower Shot!!!!!
17 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I dunno about anyone else but when I saw the shower scene of Samantha Janus I could not stand up! She has an amazing pair of breasts!! Neil Morrisey is a very lucky man walking in on Sam Janus naked in the shower...boy I wish I was in his shoes because I would of joined her and soaped her up. She defo should of got her kit off in Game On, that was a great show and she looked gorgeous in that as well. Shes still looking good at 36 years old in Eastenders. Overall Up'N'Under is a great film and Neil Morrisey is absolutely hilarious in the film the way he turns around to her in the shower and says "Thanks" haha!! What a legend!

What does anyone else think on the shower shot?
