Storyline

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

I'll be 30 tomorrow, so I checked it out...
17 November 2008 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

I'll be 30 tomorrow, so I thought it would be a nice idea to check out this movie! That was the main reason why I watched it!:) It's not bad, half comedy, half drama, it tells us a story of a small group of men which play football together since they were young boys. We see their desires and hopes and how they relate as friends. The football is always a "scenario" to the plot as it's not really about football, but about friendship and people's feelings and relationships instead.

Not being a great movie (I think it's not its purpose anyway), it's entertaining and good enough. It also has some funny scenes, with good jokes, not in a large number, but enough to a comedy-drama... I score it 6/10.
