Storyline

Nineteen-year-old Jason and Ade have been in the Academy of a famous London football club since they were eight years old. It's the night before their first-ever game for the first team - a Champions League match - and they're in a hotel room in Romania. They should be sleeping, but they're over-excited. They skip, fight, mock each other, prepare their kit, watch a teammate's sex tape. And then, out of nowhere, one of them kisses the other. The impact of this 'pass' reverberates through the next ten years of their lives - a decade of fame and failure, secrets and lies, in a sporting world where image is everything.

Unquestionably worst LGBT movie of all times
18 December 2016 | by kukutisq3See all my reviews

I wish there was option to give nothing or 0 , but sadly I have to give this movie 1 star and it is still too much. I had to leave after 1 hour because I couldn't longer watch this nonsense. Everything about this movie is bad, the script, the actors, the story line, EVERYTHING. There is nothing there, meaningless dialogs and poor jokes from time to time, the first 40 minutes of movie are in some kind of hotel room where basically nothing happened. I wasn't expecting sex or something, but there was nothing interesting happening. I kept questioning myself what this movie is all about, but I realised that it is cheap ***t, some people decided to make a nice poster to attract/target certain society group thinking to easy suck their money out and at least they succeed in my case. I wish I could get 15 pound refund, but sadly this is not possible. My best advice for you is: every single time you see a poster of this movie - RUN AWAY FROM IT and don't look back.
