Kate Bowes Renna,
Down-on-his-luck Carter has recently become homeless, single and unemployed. Desperate to win back his ex-girlfriend, he goes off on an adventure throughout London to find her, picking up some odd helpers along the way.
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
This British comedy-drama story handles strong themes like growing up and friendship but has troubles keeping the tone right, though it gets to touch effectively, with many plot threads, life's important issues in a natural setting. Characters are certainly realistic and some darker elements are also shown in the plot. The comedy is focused on embarrassment, innuendo and humiliation but it lacks a bit in liveliness. The brilliant performances are undermined by this shortage in vivacity, so that they end up being (at least seeming) a little contrived. There are several plot lines but in the end both humor and drama are not that powerful. To sum up good idea, a good introduction but also some boredom.
