Movie Info

The Jaume Collet-Serra-directed comedy drama Goal! 2: Living the Dream finds star European soccer player Santiago Muñez (Kuno Becker) bumped by his agent (Stephen Dillane) from England's Newcastle United team to Real Madrid's Galácticos, where he is thrilled to play alongside field legends David Beckham, Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, and others. In off-time, temptation lingers in the form of amorous dalliances with spicy local women, especially the TV hostess Jordana (Leonor Varela) -- a relationship that threatens the security of his marital engagement to Geordie nurse Roz (Anna Friel), who has accompanied him to Spain. During his time in Madrid, Santiago also discovers, most unexpectedly and poignantly, what happened to the mother who abandoned him during his early childhood. Alessandro Nivola co-stars as Santiago's pal Gavin.

  • Despite the predictable, clich-riddled script, the soap-opera hokum that passes for drama, Goal II somehow works.

  • Goal II clumsily telegraphs all of its moves far in advance.

    August 29, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • I won't tell you the result, but I will say that Arsene Wenger would be wise to avoid Goal 2 in case he suffers from terminal apoplexy.

    February 9, 2007 | Rating: 2/5
  • A machine might have directed this, but it has a few more welcome touches of comedy than the first one.

    February 9, 2007 | Full Review…
  • One long, product-placing, non-speaking-cameo-packed infomercial.

    February 9, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Ultimately, this is relegation fodder from start to finish.

Audience Reviews for Goal II: Living the Dream

    A much better story than the original, but still lacked any real belief. Maybe if he had went to decent side like Utd it would've been better.

    It's worse than the first, this is boring and confusing.

    Not as good as the first film but still watchable. it continues the story as Santiago deals with the fame of becomnig a superstar footballer for Real Madrid. Again, it has lots of cliches but that makes it nonetheless more watchable although it does not end exactly as you would expect, well recommended.

    I still got problems with the second movie, again first of all I'm a true Man United fan and I hate Real Madrid, second of all I find this movie pretty boring, instead of trying on focus to the main character they are actually focusing on Beckham, third of all again only some part of this movie showing Santiago plays football...
