"No real point or sense of direction...leads nowhere!"
22 February 2006 | by (Great Yarmouth, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of those tedious TV films that every once in a while are made with no real point or sense of direction. We see a rather "out of place" Joe Don Baker arrive in a fictional English town, (it's actually Great Yarmouth & Lowestoft on the east coast of England), to coach a team of English student soccer players the sport of American football. The team are put through a rigorous training routine for a game of American Football. The film, (or rather ScreenTwo Play), really does lead nowhere and there are numerous continuetty errors, not that it really matters for this dull affair, however fans of the sport may enjoy this and those that live or work in Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft will no doubt recognise some of the locations.
