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

I have had this DVD in my collection for a while now and was really looking forward to watching it. How could it miss, you've got Danny Dyer (who i think is a very underrated actor), The England football team playing in Euro 2004, and a half descent story line involving Danny Dyer's character trying to see the first 3 England group games (on their honeymoon) without his other half finding out he already had the tickets before they left.

I am thinking this could be ,Is harry on the boat meets Football Factory a cocky lad's film a real Brit classic. How wrong i was. I was gutted a real let down. Watching it i felt it tried to be to many things it should have just been a comedy and used Danny Dyer in that lad role he does so well. Also without giving too much away what the hell are those 2 guys doing commentating on whats going on in the film that was really annoying.

So do yourself a favour if your Danny Dyer fan watch The Business, Outlaw or Football Factory. If you want a chick flick leave the other half to it and go to the pub.
