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

Well worth the money
31 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Don't pay any attention to the moaners - Reds and Blues, the Ballad of Dixie and Kenny is a hugely enjoyable film. I pity the fool who turned off after 20 minutes and missed the full genius of the Rap Battle - I haven't laughed that much for ages.

Andrew Schofield is, as always, brilliant to watch and newcomer Paul Duckworth adds a manic energy that builds to boiling point - and the performances from TJ Jones and Sonny Spofforth as Little Stevie and Ronaldo mark them out for future success.

I've watched this film with both Reds and Blues and the result has always been the same - sheer enjoyment and plenty of laughs.

And I should mention the fantastic documentary 'Derby Days' that follows the main feature... a great extra which only adds to the value. Quality.
