Storyline

Stenfors BK is a very poorly soccer team with an average age of at least 40. In order to save this team, coach and team-member Anders decides to call in a former soccer-star who is no longer the star he used to be. With alcohol problems and no desire to improve his image these days, this is more challenging than Anders first thought. And with a wife who just wants to move and a sarcastic father who disapproves everything, this task is not so easy. Written by Lenah

Quotes

Duncan Miller: What's the hurry?
Tommy: Nah, It's a little tradition that we have, that the first car to the way-game wins a bottle of buy-booze. It's like, you know, sprite that you... from the system.
Duncan Miller: Okay, so what are we waiting for?
Tommy: Nah, it's no danger on the roof. Just gonna give them a couple of minutes, so it's more, uhm, interesting. Like Burt Reynolds in the film; Now We Blow The Cops!

Too much onside
19 November 2006 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

Feelgood movie? Yes, indeed. Another picture, there the Swedish countryside is viewed like a zoo, although sympathetic.

It's about the football team coming closer and closer to the final degradation. Then, it finds the solution: It's the English legend, the scorer in two FA Cup finals. But there's one problem when he arrives in Sweden. He's an alcoholic.

Jonas Karlsson, Torkel Petersson and Ingvar Hirdwall never do bad performances and without them, this would have been too much according to the manual. This is light entertainment for 1h 45 m, but nothing that goes to film history. Definitely not.
