Goofs

The film begins in the winter of 2011, evident from the date on the security camera monitor in an early shot. The finale of the film takes place at the World Championships, which is raced outdoors and in the summer, but are here advertised as taking place in 2011. This is impossible, for they would have needed to have taken place six months prior to the film's beginning for them to be the "2011 World Championships". See more »

Must be Olympic season, Fast Girls are approaching!
21 June 2012 | by malaysian1789See all my reviews

With the London Olympics fast approaching, what better way to cash in on the mood with a film about Female Athletics....that doesn't mention the Olympics at all or make any references to London. Nevertheless, the story is enjoyable, depicting a group of athletes trying to win relay success at the ''world championships'' despite having barely any practice, getting drunk before races and generally arguing with each other. Classic British spirit there.

Our main characters Shania and Lisa, come from different backgrounds, Shania is working-class (we know this, as she claims she's never even been on a plane before!) whilst Lily is posh and supported by her family. Ignoring the fact that this is basically Bend It Like Beckham 2, the story works like a soap, at times it felt like an Olympic special of Eastenders, even featuring the actress who played ''Chelsea'' in the soap. There's drama, affairs and fights, alongside the minor issue of the actual Athletics.

Written by Noel Clarke (Kidulthood/Adulthood creator), the film is very fast paced, and has that ''urban'' soundtrack to please teenagers. It essentially does what it says on the tin and you will find yourself caring about who wins the big race at the end!

6/10
