Prototypical coming of age story, with some rather inexperienced actors
this sometimes has its charms, but too little is happening and the
story is not gritty enough for that to work this time. Also there is the annoyance of a very intrusive soundtrack with a tendency to eat the spoken sentences - and since most of the lyrics is in danish they will be of no help whatsoever to people who don't speak the language.
Better movie's for people who like these kinds of movies would be Zappa, Twist and Shout, F***ing Åmål and Gregorys Girl.
For the English speaking public it should be noted that the danish title literally means "2 twitches and a pass" and is a euphemism for youthful male self gratification :-) Hence the "Kick n' Rush" title is a bit misleading even though there is a lot of soccer in the movie...
