Eighteen year-old Jesminder's parents want her to be a nice, conventional Indian girl. But she just wants to play soccer like her hero, David Beckham.

I loved this movie when it first came out and it's still so much fun to watch.

someone in my family requested this movie. the weird cover and title was only the beginning. the movie was a big waste of my time

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

A must see if you're a soccer fan. It also illustrates the differences between cultures (Indian and British) and features a young Keira Knightley.

A really cliche film topped with cheese. It has some oddly awkward parts in it...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.
