I bought this simply because I am a fan of Gerard Butler. However, I did know about the loss to the USA by England which is still seen as a major sporting upset.

However, on researching afterwards, there are a lot of inaccuracies but to be honest, just watch the movie. It is so rare nowadays to have a film that the whole family can watch and enjoy without violence or sex. At the time of writing this, there are only 3 players from the USA that are still alive from this game - including Gerard Butler's character. At least he was indulging in two of his passions - acting and football (being an avid fan of Celtic FC apparently).

Gavin Rossdale, the Bush frontman cuts rather a dash as Tom Finney, the England captain but considering that Tom was from the more working class part of England, it was hard to get Rossdale portraying him as a rather arrogant English toff. But I put that down to the Americans taking the usual stereotyping of the Brits in that we're all la-di-dah. Since this doesn't have spoken narrative, I can only dispel that myth by saying I'm from Aberdeen and we certainly don't speak like that. Rossdale possibly has a future as an actor, particularly in the Pierce Brosnan/Daniel Craig mould.

In all, the film is what it is, an entertaining piece of moviemaking, the girls get to look at Gerry, there's football for the others. It's something the Americans will always have in their sporting lexicons - beating the finest that England had produced.

I bought this DVD due to an interest in Gerard Butler's work but found myself strangely drawn into the story about soccer and the USA's first entry into the World Cup and because the film is so well done, I found myself rooting for the Americans against my home country!! At the end, my thought of 'well, who knew?' kept the story wandering around in my mind long after I had finished watching it. An intersting challenge for Mr. Butler playing an Italian American!

the DVD arrived quickly and in good condition.

The film itself was slow and boring even to a football or history fanatic. Butler picked a wrong one this time.

I suppose this appeals mainly to people who love football, although behind the ball-kicking there is a lot more.
The old values that made football so popular are all wonderfully portrayed into this story. Perhaps it would do the modern players good to watch this movie and see what playing is truly about besides the fancy car, high-life and ridiculous wages!

I enjoyed this film very much,the acting is very good and Gerard Butler really looks Italian.Gerard is such a versatile actor.I find it totally facinating how he can portray such different characters as Erik so moving, in ''Phantom of the opera''and switch to funny or extremely macho characters in films such as "300".Can you tell that I am a massive admirer of Gerard? .
