Review:

I loved this movie growing up and I had no interest at all in soccer/football. It was all about Jonathan Rhys Meyers and his accent. Seriously, he’s the only reason I watched the movie as a teenager. Now a days I’m not so into lanky men, but the accent is still pretty awesome.

As an adult I found the cultural side of things much more interesting. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t still enjoy listening to him talk though.
