In 5-man-a-side soccer, a newly formed gay team goes up against an established team with a deserved reputation for violence and a skittish first-time official, with more action off-field than on.

Trivia

The film is dedicated to Justin Fashanu, the first ever, and still the only, openly gay professional soccer/football player in British history. He was also the first black UK football player to command £1,000,000 for the sale of his contract from one club to another. Fashanu committed suicide in May 1998. See more »

Amateurish, flat, illogical film
24 February 2011 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film was a disaster. I was expecting a campy gay version of Bend It Like Beckham. That would have had a lot of potential. But the actors in this film had no soccer skill at all. The soccer game itself was interrupted so many times, it was impossible to follow. Probably because of budget, they couldn't even field a full team, just five to a side! The plot made little sense, and the dialog was flat.

The only bright point was the excellent performance by the camp gay step dad played by writer Rikki Beadle-Blair. The movie might have been better if they focused on that relationship before the game day, and then cut most of the game itself.
