"Roy of the Rovers" David takes on Goliath plot line. Its a howl from start to finish. Homemade bike takes on the big teams and beats them. You can play spot the cliche right down to the ludicrously OTT ending. Pretty much a vehicle for David Essex's limited talent, his pop career was over by now and he was trying to make it as an actor. He should have stuck to singing, as a singer he only sucked, as an actor he was truly appalling. Beau Bridges must look back at this and shudder.
