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 KGF Vissers

unexpected good one
1 November 2006 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

Well, while watching the first 10-15 minutes of the film I thought I was going to watch an "American Pie" movie: Stupid characters, a downfall of sexual gags and nothing more. Surprisingly, I found a serious film (with some jokes) about the sense of life and the decisions to make when people grow old. In 1983, a football team called Athletic Greenwich was created. After 20 years, the team still exists and it has the same players, which, of course, are older (they are going to be 30 early). All of them have changed a lot and have a life outside the team, but football still keep them together. Everyone has his problems and all of them have decided to leave the team, but, knowing they are going to play the match 500, they all decide to play it. This will cause all the problems to explode and lives are going to change for everyone, after discovering what they want to do in the rest of their lives. Good story, with well built characters, all of the different and with their particular (and usual) problems. The story is also well written and the story keeps being interesting during all the time. Maybe it is not a masterpiece, but it is much better than expected.
