Endearingly ridiculous, human characters.
14 January 2007 | by (California) – See all my reviews

The characters in this film are all lovable despite being rather pathetic and silly as they stumble through young adulthood, all the while probably making some of the biggest choices and decisions of their lives. They all act like idiots, but you have to love them for not being afraid to be silly and not being immune to being made to look idiotic.

I didn't expect to like "Días de Fútbol" because of the title, but it is really barely about Fútbol, and more about the players of one particularly clumsy team of friends.

I think if there is a message to this film, it is mainly to show how difficult, yet worthwhile relationships can be. This is a romantic comedy involving several couples, many characters and a lot of silliness.
