The rotten tomatoes audience score is somehow 81%, which is strange because this movie is GODAWFUL. It centers around an illegal immigrant from LA who becomes a professional soccer player in England. The story is derivative, the characters are wooden and one-dimensional, and the "soccer" on display is farcically bad. It cost 10 million and grossed only four and a half. Also, this fictional player doesn't join Manchester United, Chelsea, or another big club. He joins Newcastle United. And this movie got two sequels, that are somehow worse. It was nominated four two teen choice awards, and some other awards I have never heard of.
