Storyline

When English Mark surprises his American bride Holly with her dream honeymoon to Portugal she cant believe her luck. Mark goes to great trouble to organise everything for her. They arrive in Portugal to discover that the country is hosting a major international soccer tournament and that the English national team is playing! Whats more, the England team, and their raucous fans, seem to follow them everywhere. Soccer-loving Mark claims innocence - a complete coincidence - after all, what kind of man would lie to his new wife just to watch England play in a tournament? Gradually, Holly is forced to consider that perhaps her husband could be just such a man. Marks odd behaviour, their whirlwind romance and her fathers money (that paid for the trip) all begin to add to a terrible conclusion. The games intensify, the subterfuge deepens and cracks develop. Mark denies everything, but what has he done? How can he prove that he really loves her? The film captures the passion, drama and ... Written by Elliot Potter

Hits the Back of the Net!
15 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Really great movie, saw it at a festival in Portugal, won the People's choice award! Danny Dyer puts in his usual performance in a movie set around Euro 2004!! Vinnie Jones is also in it as his alter ego, Danny's character is fibbing to his new wife so he can watch all the England games.

It is pretty funny as they are supposed to be on honeymoon, of course she has no idea there is a football tournament on! Football movies do not always work but The Other Half keeps you guessing right to the end. Football Factory star Danny Dyer gets it spot on as he lies and cheats behind the back of new wife Gillian Kearney is from Shameless!

I Think it is getting a UK DVD release just before the World Cup??
