Secret Diary of a Call Centre Girl follows the zany Emma Eccles, a high-energy call centre employee trying to make a living but finds herself selling stuff that's useless, expired, or that nobody in their right mind would use.
Amateur football [soccer] team Athletico Greenwich exists 20 years and is determined to celebrate their 500th match, especially the six veterans who were in it from the start. Life keeps getting in the way of playing, just as it frustrates the lists of things to do before age 30 made by the juniors, as proven by the over 30s' experience, such as Collin's obsession to have a threesome with girlfriend Vicky and her mate Sheera. Captain Cass resents his pregnant girl Kate's intent to focus their entire lives on the baby. Collin's house mate, would be musician Dylan, should answer to his dad. Johhny as taken in his cripple step-dad Don, once the team's mentor. Real or alleged homosexuality is a tender issue. Written by
There's one complaint I've against this movie - it didn't do justice to a whole load of potential stories that could be developed. The story of a man who's stretched between his love for playing football (the 500th match) and his love for his wife. The story of a man whose crush became his step-mother.
The one good thing in this movie is the chemistry between Cass, Kate, and Adam. There's this bond between Kate and Adam that has been played perfectly in the movie, and they have not gone overboard with it.
Overall, nothing great about the movie, though you may smile at the little hilarious scenes here and there. If you could avoid it, you wouldn't miss a thing.
