News & Interviews for Eleven Men Out (Strakarnir okkar)
Critic Reviews for Eleven Men Out (Strakarnir okkar)
[Eleven Men Out] thoughtful and funny characters, something that should give this droll drama appeal beyond a niche gay audience.
A non-pandering crowd-pleaser whose character quirks and small stabs at poignancy feel refreshingly earned.
If you detect anything fresh or original in terms of character or story development, you're probably not watching this movie.
Douglas addresses rather serious issues with warmth and humour in this engaging football comedy, which doesn't actually show much football action.
Audience Reviews for Eleven Men Out (Strakarnir okkar)
So disappointing. The story has potential, some good ideas are there, but there is no coherence in the storyline, the filming is bad, the stereotypes are ablaze (or was this camp? I couldn't tell), the dialogues are trite. The latter could be attributed to the bad dubbed version I saw, everything else couldn't. Unfortunately a bad, bad film based on a good idea. If you want to see a gay-themed football movie, I recommend the German film "Guys & Balls", which is a hilariously campy and sweet take on the same subject matter.
Ugh I really wanted to like this movie but the plot line really goes nowhere. Other than the hot main character coming out, nothing else happens.
Great concept for a movie. If you like this theme, watch Guys and Balls, it's a better version of this theme, though still not top notch. Not much to say about this movie, kinda drab, ground breaking at the time but boring in plot, story and acting.
