This dog needs his balls deflated.
4 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My 7 yr old is football (not 'soccer') mad and was thoroughly disappointed with this terrible, terrible film. This film was made by people with no knowledge at all of football- the 'European Cup' is a charity match between a village team of the usual 'oddballs and misfits' and implausibly a team called 'London' with the biggest football star in the country in it. The representation of Scotland is equally inaccurate - from the accents it seems to be populated by mainly Irish and Welsh, kilts are everywhere and everyone eats Haggis at football games and have never heard of pizza.

The dog kicks a cartoonish looking CGI football around but probably the saddest thing is Nick Moran, who has descended from 'Lock, Stock..' to this. Strangely, on the DVD bonus feature cast interviews, Eastender Moran affects a Scottish accent and says that he'd never acted before this film! How ashamed of this film must he be to try to pretend to be someone else! Even the rest of the cast are joking and making ironic comments about how crap this film is. Anyway, if your kids love football, they will be bored by this. If your kids love animals they will be bored by this.

Go and watch a dog chase a ball around the park instead.
