Lowly Gillingham Football Club are drawn against Premiership giants Newcastle United in the quarter finals of the FA Cup. A small group of 'Gills' fans decide to make the most of their 'game of a lifetime' by turning the journey north into a weekend away. On the eve of departure one of the group receives a visit from Terry, a man with no legs in a wheelchair, claiming he can get them a free minibus and free diesel. In return, all they have to do is take him with them! Written by

I feel this film has been underrated by many people, after all it is meant to be a comedy and not a true to life story, I have read some other reviews that appear to compare the movie and characters to real life situations but I feel the intention was not to mimic true facts and make a movie filled with amusing characters instead
I first watched this expecting it to be a lot worse than it was so was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be a pretty funny movie; some of the characters are hilarious.
Parts of the storyline were predictable, but even so it did not take away from the fact it was a funny movie well worth watching.
