Storyline

The local social cricket team are up to bat and sometimes it seems they are one batsman short of of an eleven. There are good secrets and not so good secrets that come to light during the course of the day. Roger is the ultimate captain rallying his troops whilst ignoring his greatest strength, Miriam, who makes the 'fantastic' teas with or without the 'non-compulsory' help. The days builds to a climax where it seems that everything must change forever. But will it? Written by Sonja Farmer

Silly Mid On's
7 January 1999 | by taitaSee all my reviews

The movie is a delightful and humorous expose of the social game of cricket where the "Games the thing". Set in England on a Saturday Morning our diverse 'eleven' pitch themselves against an out of town team and to a greater degree, each other. The Captain must juggle his silly mid on's with his fine legs, while debating whether a plaster on the bowlers hand is legal. This story can be transposed to any Saturday social sport, where the teams are made up of the workers, the unreliables, the wannabe's, and the unrecognised supporters. More subtle than any Jim Carrey movie and definitely funnier.
