Bend It Like Beckham and John Hughes

In Scotland, gangly Gregory and his friend are sex-obsessed teenagers. They try out for Coach Menzies to play football but they are all pathetic. In steps Dorothy who becomes the best footballer on the team. Gregory is in awe and in love. He learns Italian for her but she sees him as "slow and awkward". It's so hopeless that even his mature 10 year old sister Madeline tries to help. He asks Dorothy out and is surprised when she agrees. But it doesn't turn out the way he expected.

I love the awkward dorkiness of John Gordon Sinclair. It's got many of John Hughes' moves like selling Dorothy's picture in the bathroom. I love Gregory's relationship with his sister and I love the lying down dancing. The young amateurs try their best with varying degree of success. The movie is simply charming and lovely. It's a fun little teen coming-of-age indie.

Director Bill Forsyth depicts how a young British lad gets true love in a film with football as a key element.

British film 'Gregory's Girl' is about the innocent world of young people who learn about different ways of the world uniquely from their own ingenuous perspective. The film is set in a small Glasgow school where everybody knows each other. It is a challenging sphere where one might become fascinated with sex but true love is what everybody seems to be searching. Some are able to get a taste of love whereas some have to wait a little longer or are even forced to make plans to go as far as Caracas to find love. In this Bill Forsyth film, the main focus is on the game of football as the film revolves around this energetic sport where even a girl gets all opportunities to be hailed as a great football player. Suspense is maintained throughout the film as nobody can guess who is going to end up as 'Gregory's Girl' till the end of the film.

What the hell did I just watch?

Wow, words can't describe what I just experienced. In contrast to jonmeta, I have to say, that the dated fashions and soundtrack were the only recommendable parts of this movie, and what kept me from turning it off instantly.

The script is just weird, characters appearing and disappearing with no plot line at all. The characters are flat stereotypes with no development. The acting is horrible. I've seen kindergarden kids perform better on memorized lines than these guys. The camera is just boooring, unless it's awkward - then it's awkward. I didn't laugh once throughout this movie, nor felt any sympathy for any of the characters. My first completely emotionless movie experience. There's better acting and storytelling in porn movies going on.

The only thing that was interesting for me, were the background sceneries of a 70s town in the UK, and the different haircuts and the fashion. The accent of the people was of some interest as well. That's what the 1 star is for, otherwise I'd have to give 0 - meaning not even wasting time on writing this review.
