An entertaining flick for all ages!
15 September 2019 | by gtamaniak-16300See all my reviews

That is if you ignore the Mafia and adult entertainment part (just make up some good excuse parents around the globe!!). I saw this movie recently and I was charmed by its heart-warming characters, some of its funny moments really brought a smile on my face and the plot is self-explanatory and actually not to hard to follow. The Crab is a lovable character and probably the main star of the film who is very sympathetic and whom you want to see him succeed in all his actions. The child actors' performances are not too bad either.

However, I was disappointed that he doesn't become a goalkeeper until the end of the film and there are some plot holes and writing that don't make much sense (like why the crab always finishes a phrase saying 'kani' or how his language skills are developed throughout the film )

Still, I was satisfied with this experience considering it is a made for TV film and I wouldn't hesitate to watch it again.
