When Horace is refereeing the boys playing, he remarks that they can't even play soccer without squabbling. Since they are British, he should have said "football" since that's what they call it, but of course he is an American so he calls it "soccer". See more »
Having seen the trailer, I had expected something delightful, fantastical and otherworldly. Sadly, the fantastic element is only a thin veneer over an otherwise mediocre, formulaic action movie. It's not terrible and it's entertaining enough to wile a way a rainy Sunday afternoon with the kids, but I wouldn't bother watching it a second time. Certainly didn't live up to my expectations.
