Being a fan of Danny Dyer's street cred character roles, and reading the rave reviews from others on Amazon, I ordered this film.

I found the characters irritating, the jokes weak, the arty film techniques unnecessary (what were those animation and daydream sequences all about?) and basically the story line was worthless. I gave up after 20 minutes of boredom. No surprise this film went straight to video. Thankfully I didn't buy it, it was a rental so it only cost 2.

Do yourself a favour- avoid!

This is definitly not one of Danny Dyers' best films. The story is a good idea and could have been a much better film, but is ruined by the weird dreams and commentators in the film. It is not a patch on the "Football factory" or "The Business"!!

I was out in Portugal, so this film pretty much hits the nail on the head for capturing what it was like following England. Danny Dyer is Brilliant, the film flows really well, you should check it out!

At last, a football film with a difference.

If you don't enjoy this film, then you are unable to see outside the six-yard box. This movie has a refreshing new look at the passion many people share for football. I loved the Commentators who offer witty annotations to the film. It looks like the film was made on a tight budget, but the story line is very strong and Danny Dyer is a convincing frustrated footry fan. Look out for the sexy Katie Comer - a star in the making. The previous reviewer that said the filmmakers should be ashamed should perhaps try and making a film of this scale himself - get real man!

Well done to the Director and screenwriter -whoever you are, keep up the good work.

saw this last year at a london film event, cracking okayish film with danny playing the same character that he always plays (loveable rouge with a heart) but no surprise it has gone straight to DVD. Worth the price anyhow just to see danny in the bathtub. Nice sunday aternoon film with the lads and a few beers.

Saw this movie the other day at its London premiere. Can't understand why it's not getting a full theatrical release in the UK, but that's sometimes just the way things turn out...

Mark 'forgets' to metion to his newly-wed that their dream honeymoon in Portugal, funded by her father, just 'happens' to put him in the right place at the right time to use the three tickets he scored for Euro 2004. Can he make it to the games and keep his wife...?!

This is a romantic comedy with a surreal twist and more than a pinch of football - hints of Mike Bassett, Green Wing and Richard Curtis, among others. Another typically likeable rogue from Danny Dyer as Mark, an enjoyable performance from Vinnie Jones as Mark's 'manager', and a wonderful odd couple of commentators following the action, all make up for a slightly weak female lead.

An inventive and entertaining first feature from writer-directors Marlowe Fawcett and Richard Knockles, not to mention a timely reminder of the fun and games of Euro 2004. Buy the DVD and look forward to seeing more from them soon!

Danny dyer in the business was great , danny dyer in this film is pathetic.The story is pathetic and the acting is pathetic , this film must of been made before the business was made and got released because danny dyer is now making a name for himself , well if he released this film first he would now be classed as a pathetic flop.Whoever wrote this film and whoever directed it should be very ashamed. id give it half a star if i could!
