What's that movie

Post by Steve#4 »

Watched a film on the way to Singapore last month but can't remember the name.

Was subtitled and was about a small town fishing community that had progressed in the cup.

An ex superstar player that had fallen on hard times and alcoholism was sentenced to coach this club
in the cup(sounds familiar storyline). he get's together ex players and makes it all the way to play Juve(I think)
to save the fishing towns produce plant...I won't give away the ending.

Was a fun movie with a few laughs and wouldn't mind watching it again as I had a few reds on that flight... :lol:

I've heard about this film, don't know if i could watch a film on a plane with subtitles though.

Or more specifically, why not on a plane as opposed to anywhere else?

I prefer films I don't have to concentrate on on a plane, I normally doze on flights and regularly will just close my eyes and listen as I drift off rather than actually WATCH. Plus you will invariably get distrubed by someone wanting to get out, serve you food or I want to get another beer.

I'm the reverse. I've never really been a big fan of flying and can never sleep on a flight so prefer to concentrate on something to take my mind off the fact that I am flying. Having said that, relying on subtitles when you're trying to eat is a pain. These days I take my tablet and stop/start films as I please.

Depending on the airline they may have their inflight movies listed on their website.

he makes a good point!

Only issue, they normally update them at the start of the month. So could be different films this month.

I looked at their site before posting but being the turn of the month couldn't find anything either.
If this username offends you does Saloth Sar. At least that is the name of someone that exists.

As I said, can't remember....I watched Save your Legs First, then Chasing Mavericks followed by this little gem all accompanied with a glass or two....

Can't find it on the web anywhere, my only chance is if someone has seen it before...

Just because it's subtitled doesn't mean it is not an English language film :lol:

I believe it was called The World Cup "A Captains Tale" The true story of the First world footballing competition, won by a bunch of miners from Durham. Won it three times and beat the likes of Juventus to retain the cup in perpetuity. Starred Dennis Waterman and Richard Griffith etc made in 1982 as a Telemovie.
Hope this helps

Too many things in the original descriptions don't work. That film does exist though and is based on the true story of West Auckland.
