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!

Wonderful football scenes
2 February 2007 | by gorresSee all my reviews

The movie itself is an ordinary Swedish "make you feel good"-movie but the scenes where they play football is outstanding and really funny. Even more funny if you have played football on that level yourself. Tina Nordlund was one of Sweden's best female football players a couple of years ago and she make her acting debut surprisingly good in this movie. I can really recommend this picture if you are a fan of football but if your not, go see Jalla-Jalla or Cops instead. It's also a movie about different family situations, alcoholism, shattered dreams and the courage to brake up something and start all over from scratch again. A perfect movie to see when youré hangover.
