Storyline

Lowly Gillingham Football Club are drawn against Premiership giants Newcastle United in the quarter finals of the FA Cup. A small group of 'Gills' fans decide to make the most of their 'game of a lifetime' by turning the journey north into a weekend away. On the eve of departure one of the group receives a visit from Terry, a man with no legs in a wheelchair, claiming he can get them a free minibus and free diesel. In return, all they have to do is take him with them! Written by Away Days Productions Limited

Not bad
14 June 2010 | by Gubby-AllenSee all my reviews

Not a bad film, a little better than the 5.0 suggests. A good blend of characters let down only by the fact they cover every dynamic of person possible, amusing & easy storyline to follow & two or three hilarious moments. Nothing overtly great about it, but so long as you put aside the following flaws well worth a watch: 1) It's difficult to believe an entire bus full of people could all mistake Newcastle under Lyme for Newcastle, for too long we never had an understanding of where the bus was.

2) The timeline of the film & the emphasis on the opening scene (with the West Ham fans) was a peculiar angle to take. There were half-a-dozen scenes of more significance than that one (even including moments at either end of that scene). Why it was deemed that important to the film I don't know - even characters within it, never crop up again, yet have the lines to open the film & are deemed the main cast.

3) For a comedy there were a few segments with little humour - deliberately so - more character driven scenes, but at odds with the rest of the film.

But all in all, a good effort, you'll see a lot worse films of this type, than this.
