Storyline

A group of underdogs form an amateur football team to play in a local league. The prize for the winners: a trip to the 2002 World Cup Finals. The team include a common man's hero who raises his two children single-handedly after his wife passes away, an ex-con with major anger management problems, a lounge singer struggling against his deadly nemesis - the karaoke machine, and a tender but tough tomboy. The story is built around the team struggle against the odds from no-hopers to title contenders. Through the game of football, the team learns not just sportsmanship, but life lessons that help them to mature as individuals, and ultimately, help each other to become better human beings. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

A waste of Singaporean talent
23 January 2004 | by BluePixieSee all my reviews

Gurmit Singh and co. can do so much better, and you know it.

The plot is about as predictable as it gets, with the underdogs winning, the arrogant snobs who typically get humiliated in the end and a love triangle which includes the cliche of the-one-for-was-right-there-all-along. It's all been done before, and too many times at that.

The acting is not much better, Robin Leong's character being particularly cringe-inducing with his overacting. The rest of the other, more talented actors were stifled by the poor script and as a result, the whole movie felt stilted even though it was supposed to be a comedy.

This is one Singaporean movie that belongs deep in the trenches of has-been land.
