Nice movie :)

This was a pretty good show. This show was all about stereotypes. It demonstrated differences between cultures. Even though it was pretty predictable it was still a decent show.

Well-told tale of an Indian girl, born in England, who's a gifted soccer player and is faced with lying to her conservative family to play soccer (in the U.K., called football) and go against the expectation that she'll simply marry and have kids. Uplifting and dispels stereotypes about women's ability to play soccer (this was filmed back in 2002, before the meteoric rise of the U.S. women's soccer champions and other countries also creating female soccer pipelines.

A fun and inspiring movie for young women who love soccer. The movie also does an excellent job of highlighting the role of culture and gender in society.

I didn't like this show. I just thought it was plain crude.

A really cliche film topped with cheese. It has some oddly awkward parts in fact, too many...really disliked it as did the other 50 people I saw it with on a trip.

Predictable, and light fare, but fun, and definitely worth the watch.

A nice, light-hearted movie. Great for families!

A different take on the traditional quirky small-town British light comedy but still with elements of what makes these types of films so generally enjoyable by a great range of filmgoers - eccentric characters and global issues on a community level - in this case Punjab Brits concerned their daughter is rejecting her expected role in life.

My husband loves this movie for the Indian cultural experience!

Okay primer on girls' sports and interracial relationships. Reasonably entertaining and well meaning but not very sophisticated content.

A nice tale of two cultures coming together. An interesting look into an other cultures' expectations with a young adult perspective.
