Knowing Gerard Butler’s love for soccer, I naively went into this movie thinking it could be the next more than decent soccer film since “Bend It Like Beckham” broke Keira Knightley’s career 10 years ago. Silly me.
This movie insults the intelligence of soccer fans and women alike.
Maybe you’re surprised at such big-name stars involved in this sub-par mess?? Add Dennis Quaid to the list. My theory: Quaid ; Zeta-Jones and Thurman all have kids who probably play soccer. Catering to their kids, possibly.
No goals scored in this one.
