Storyline

Dixie (Paul Duckworth) a fervent, bitter blue has been bin-bagged and arrives at the home of his crazy Evertonian sister, Gwladys (Lindzi Germain). Unbeknown to the blues, the rabid reds next door headed by Kenny (Andrew Schofield) and Anne (Lynn Francis) are planning a European Cup celebration garden party. On finding out, Dixie is hell-bent on ruining the occasion. The ridicule and banter between both families and their kids is endless as the flak is fired from both sides of the dividing fence which becomes a World War 1 no-man's-land trench. Between the onslaught are many cameos from ex red & blue players including Howard Kendall as the Blue Bishop and Ian St John as the Red Saint whilst original songs from Dixie & Gwladys inside the Bitter & Twisted arms, and from Anne and Kenny make this a Red and Blue comedy musical fest. Other Red & blue cameos include, Phil Thompson, Alan Kennedy, John Aldridge, Jimmy Case, Tommy Smith, Mark Ward, Stuart Barlow, Graham Stuart and Derek ... Written by Dave Kirby

Get ready to groove get ready to rap!!!
2 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This surreal comedy film was a delight to watch from start to finish. All the media reviews were very positive and totally accurate - funny, light entertainment with a great blues narrative sound track. Being from the city I identified with the rivalry between both the red and blue camps - every team has its nemesis. Everyone I know has seen it - it must be the most popular DVD in the city for many years and is surely set to become a cult classic. The rap battle finale was the crescendo to a thoroughly enjoyable watch (my two young children regularly sing it word-for-word). The songs from the movie especially the rap song are also heard regularly as phone dial-tones. All in all a nice piece of comedic escapism
