Pretty good
29 November 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

People shouldn't take films like this so seriously. If you watch it in a lighthearted manner, it has some laughs & is very enjoyable. It's also got me fired up for my matches at the weekend already.

It wasn't hilarious or laugh a minute like Four Weddings, Notting Hill or Full Monty, but there's plenty of good talent amongst the cast.

This film was made for Britain, in the same way American Football or Baseball films are made for Americans. Rugby League is only played in 3 countries in the world, so you really need to follow the game to appreciate it.

Giant killings in sport do actually happen. Maybe they're not as commonplace as films like this make out, but I prefer this sort of film to those where what actually happened in history is ignored or the romanticised, happy ending, drivel that hollywood serves up.

8/10
