Storyline

Stenfors BK is a very poorly soccer team with an average age of at least 40. In order to save this team, coach and team-member Anders decides to call in a former soccer-star who is not longer the star he used to be. With alcohol problems and no desire to improve his image this days, this is more than challenging than Anders first thought. And with a wife who just want to move and a sarcastic father who disapprove everything, this task is not so easy. Written by Lenah

Duncan Miller: What's the hurry?
Tommy: Nah, It's a little tradition that we have, that the first car to the way-game wins a bottle of buy-booze. It's like, you know, sprite that you... from the system.
Duncan Miller: Okay, so what are we waiting for?
Tommy: Nah, it's no danger on the roof. Just gonna give them a couple of minutes, so it's more, uhm, interesting. Like Burt Reynolds in the film; Now We Blow The Cops!

A classic Swedish "feelgood Movie"
10 September 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Story: A lousy soccer team in the countryside are forced to win the last games of the season. In order to win they reinforce the team with a previous FA-cup champion, Duncan Miller.

This is another one of the Swedish "feelgood movies". It is a good movie, with a large portion of humor and includes some less successful characters that are pictured in a warm and nice way. (Typical Swedish!)

Actors are all doing a good job and Torkel Petersson (also in Kopps) is once again doing a really funny part as a Swedish "redneck". Worth noticing is that the female soccer player Tina Nordlund is doing a perfectly OK job. Sportsprofiles are seldom really successful on the white screen!
