[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.
A too-thin dramedy with good intentions but poor results.
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.
While Eleven Men Out is an interesting look at how Icelandic society deals with homosexuality, it doesn't hold together as solid entertainment for U.S. audiences.
Although a very serious subject, it is often approached with comedy. This one is more successful than a lot of television sitcoms have been in conveying the challenge and the rewards of the spiritual practice of openness.
There's at least a half dozen movies fighting for attention here, none of them particularly appealing.
The film might be trying to push boundaries in terms of male nudity, but no amount of penises can save this wannabe comedy that is just not funny.
Nothing particularly subtle or different here.
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.
