Football, romance, politics and rambling
20 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Like others have already said i have fond memories of this film. If I remember rightly it was on a Friday night and I taped it on a video which had a couple of fantasy football episodes on. I watched it on the Sunday night and it really put me in the mood for a festival of football, not that you need to be a football fan to enjoy it.

The World Cup is just the backdrop, as is the general election. The real story is a familiar one and while I would stop short at calling it a feel good movie, it is certainly fun and easy to watch. I can't believe it must have been almost 15 years since I last watched it. I have just gone through a load of old videos and can't find it anywhere. I wonder if anyone has it on DVD.
