Edward 'Teddy' Brown lives for his suburban cricket club and his two best friends, Rick and Stavros. But when he realizes that his beloved team mates are moving on and growing up, he's forced to take matters into his own hands and remind them of just how good cricket can be. Rallying a boyhood dream and his own teenage obsession, 35 year old Teddy leads his very ordinary cricket team into the extraordinary heart of India, on an audacious three match tour and a mission to meet cricketing legend, Sachin Tendulkar. While Ted's best-laid plans are brought undone by the chaos of India, stumps fly, friendships fray and a life-changing comic adventure unfolds. The dream tour becomes a nightmare and the men are forced to face the realities of their friendship, confront their fears and Ted learns to move with the changing times. Written by
Quirky Australian comedy, though it helps a lot if you love cricket (as I do). Bitter-sweet, with some great comedic moments. The drama side had potential, exploring growing up and moving on with your life, but that side stumbles and goes nowhere. Could have made an interesting point.
Plot is quite clumsy and unsophisticated. The lack of polish is a source of charm, to an extent.
Decent performances from Stephen Curry, Brendon Curry and Damon Gameau in the lead roles. Solid supporting performances, with the stand-out being the stunningly beautiful Pallavi Sharda.
