    I finally saw this movie at my sister's (she's a soccer nut and a da*n good soccer player herself).
    Usually I hate sports films, but I really liked this one, and the girls looked real on the field, although they only had up to 10 weeks for preparation.

    So check it out when it hits theaters in the U.S.

    It really motivated me to dust of those ol' soccer shoes for some fun in the park when spring comes. :D
     
  2. hmm..

    maybe I should check out that movie since I have it on my computer.

    :bassist:
     
  3. What was funny, was that it came out here just when Beckham broke his foot :D

    March 13th, "in selected theaters", whatever that means.
     
  7. Woah we got a movie in Aus before it came out in US.

    I feel a wind of change here:D

    That movie is pretty funny but also quite sad esp. as I used to work in and indian rest. and know that they actually live like that and have those expectations of their daughters.
     
  8. It is called FOOTBALL .

    Of course, I just didn't want people to confuse this with "the other football game", the one you don't use your feet in. ;) :p

    Naturally the game is called Fußball. :D

    I'm eager to see it; from what I've heard of it on radio and read of it in the newspapers, it seems pretty good.

    Soccer-players, as opposed to actresses trying to make it look like they're playing soccer.
     
  13. Spielt mit dem fuss, ja?

    (sorry, that's probably appalling German and I have no sharfs-S or whatever it's called on my American keyboard!! Hey, at least I tried!)
