Storyline

When English Mark surprises his American bride Holly with her dream honeymoon to Portugal she cant believe her luck. Mark goes to great trouble to organise everything for her. They arrive in Portugal to discover that the country is hosting a major international soccer tournament and that the English national team is playing! Whats more, the England team, and their raucous fans, seem to follow them everywhere. Soccer-loving Mark claims innocence - a complete coincidence - after all, what kind of man would lie to his new wife just to watch England play in a tournament? Gradually, Holly is forced to consider that perhaps her husband could be just such a man. Marks odd behaviour, their whirlwind romance and her fathers money (that paid for the trip) all begin to add to a terrible conclusion. The games intensify, the subterfuge deepens and cracks develop. Mark denies everything, but what has he done? How can he prove that he really loves her? The film captures the passion, drama and ... Written by Elliot Potter

GREAT MOVIE!!! Danny Dyer is fantastic.
12 April 2006 | by TomKittySee all my reviews

This is a great movie. So much fun! Danny's Dyers character is a bastard for getting tickets to football matches on his honeymoon, but he is so cute, you can't really hate him. There are two characters,Alan and John that are HILARIOUS. They are these bumbling idiot commentators that are following the couple around (unbeknownst to them) and keeping score. They play off each other so well, that you fall in love with them by the end of the movie. It was shot in Portugal and it looks fantastic. The colours are vibrant and it makes Potugal look wonderful.This movie is a definite must see! The guys will appreciate the football and the love for the game and the women will love the romance part of it and everyone will love how none of us can understand where the other is coming from when it comes to football. It's a shame it's not being released in the cinema. It deserves to be! I'll be the first out to buy it.
