If you like Brit Movies then this is a must see
14 September 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

A brilliant comedy that highlights the British sense of humour and makes you get involved with the characters as they strive to become a team and win against The Cobblers. If you liked The Full Monty and When Saturday Comes then this is a must see. The soundtrack is brilliant and the actors play the parts amazingly and for the lads out there, there is an added bonus that you get to see Samantha Janus naked in the shower. Also there is the brilliance of the sadly deceased Gary Olsen (remember 2 point 4 children) who makes the film what it is not to mention Neil Morrissey (Men Behaving Badly) who plays the lanky and funny rugby lad very well. If you want to see a Brit Movie that makes you walk away feeling great then this is the one to see.
