About this movie

Football-mad Jess is 18, smart, beautiful and can bend a ball better than any boy she knows. She's set her heart on playing for a top women's footie team, but there's one problem: her strict parents want her to settled or with a nice Indian boy and learn how to cook! Flying in the face of her parents' disapproval, Jess and her best mate Jules make a name for themselves in the Beautiful Game, but then love rears its head for them both in the form of their fit (in more ways than one) coach Joe. 2002 Kintop Films.

Such a great movie for female empowerment whilst also being lighthearted, funny and romantic. To be honest i think the reason why the reviews are so negative is because the movie has a female director and it's mostly sexist men saying the movie is bad.
