    Classic mockumentary. Looks painfully outdated now but still stands up comedy-wise.

    funnier than expected could have been alot better but this mockumentary film about a lower league manager becoming the international english teams manager has a joke at every corner and a semi circle in the middle or something, also the lead is is your man out of the royle family i dont watch the royle family but my family like the royle family and i dont mean the royle family as in the queen and prince harry i mean the tv show the royle family not that my family have anything against the royal family im sure they dont, but they might.

    A film of two halves, this starts off quite weak and fizzles out quickly. If you don't turn it off after 20-30mins during England's qualifiers, the pace improves ever so slightly when England reach Brazil. The jokes don't though - for me, it was only the slight nostalgic value of seeing Ronaldo, Pele' and that bloke who used to present the sport on Anglia, that made it halfway bearable. I was going to rate this 4/10, but I'll reluctantly admit to smirking slightly at Atomic Kitten's appearance and just being reminded of the halcyon days of On The Ball with Gabby Logan & Barry Venison is surely worth another half a star. Like an England penalty shootout, 5/10

    Painfully true, the England Manager's dilemma. I had a good laugh, I love that his claim to fame was winning at Norwich.

    If you're of the age when Venables' reign as England manager hold your fondest memories of the national game and you're looking for some lowest common denominator humour, this is the film for you. It's pretty consistent and there are chuckles throughout, and if you're a fan of Tomlinson then that's probably worth an extra 1/2 star.
