Great, an Irish football movie! No, that's not right. A non-GAA Irish football movie. Made for over €1 million. That's some amount of money to film a group of lads running round a field? They need a new coach and Gleeson turns up. The whole team are a bunch of useless fools but Gleeson gets them into shape. They all argue among themselves like it's before the Celtic Tiger. Then they start winning matches. This movie is terrible - like Disco Pigs it was based on an acclaimed play so it had to be good? That's the way of thinking in this country. Put images to lame novels and plays. No wonder our films are so mediocre?
