3.0 out of 5 stars A passable, entertaining comedy, 15 July 2004
This review is from: There's Only One Jimmy Grimble [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
There's Only One Jimmy Grimble is a well crafted comedy drama about a boy who becomes a success in the world of football thanks to his boots which he believes to be magic. The underlying message is a good hearted one which results in a fairly enjoyable, unpretentious fable about the importance of confidence and self-belief. All of this is further complimented by some excellent casting. However, there are problems. The story of this film is way too sentimental and calculated and lacks the warm charm and sharp humour of Bend It Like Beckham, a film that amongst all the melodrama, at least managed to allow its characters to sufficiently develop. For these reasons amongst a few others, I will always consider Bend It Like Beckham to be a far superior film. Still, I won't dispute Jimmy Grimble's entertainment value and I wouldn't hold it against you if you rented it out for a rainy day.
2.5 Stars - Not quite a throwaway
