United We Fall (2014)
Critic Reviews for United We Fall
Man City fans will lap it up, but this is really just an 89-minute exercise in celebrity trolling.
While a microscopic budget and somewhat misguided premise create constant irritations, this British comedy has such a bone-dry sense of humour that it can't help but keep the audience laughing.
If only the end results, which take broad and often ill-judged swipes at race, gender and sexuality, were better.
It also adds weight to my theory that screenplays are a good thing and improvising only works if you have a world-class cast of comedians and Christopher Guest directing.
The film feels like a TV sketch stretched to feature length and some of the gags are crass in the extreme but it is intermittently funny and perceptive on top-level modern footballers and celebrity culture.
