I got a kick out of it....By PaulaWestwood (397 reviews) from Ashton-Under-Lyne , 16 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Take 5 young lads with a skill for freestyle football, all from different areas of the UK and each with their own story. One thing bonds them, their desire to work their way on skill and luck alone over to the USA and down through Central America to Argentina to meet Hand of God himself, Maradona. Throughtout this actual documentary, the reality of the difficulties and reasons for making the trip shine. Without properly laid plans, it is a question whether those skills can hold them all together and finance their trip, or will the differences in approach and desire wear them down and tear their bond apart. Indeed will the legend even actually be in Argentina when they arrive ?. To say more might ruin a really interesting and to the larger extent inspiring story of a road trip with a motive, kick ass lads, I'd pay to watch ya !

very goodBy goldag (8 reviews) , 26 Jul 2011i loved this doc, but not sure how many scenes were 100% unscripted. all of the lads seem likeable and you hope they get to their target.
it was okBy clob (1 review) from Derby , 19 Dec 2010its worth a watch ,the story and football tricks can be sometimes very entertaining , but hold back the lads are simply not very likeable , its a nice docu story , not something that you would spend money on renting , much rather i waited for it to come on ch4 or something lol,
end of the day , i had to watch it it two parts . thats normally a sign its a sit film , lol
more of a documentaryBy a customer from london , 02 Jun 2010not really a film but a documentary. it was ok but unless u like footie and documentaries i would not suggest you watch this. even the football aint really football as it just freestyle but some of the skills were interesting to watch.
A really lovely story!!!By Stanberry (78 reviews) from Plymouth , 02 May 2010A really good idea for a story that appeals to both men and women who have ever tried to achieve their dream...
Keepy UpBy WiggiD (4 reviews) from Edinburgh , 13 Oct 2009Excellent movie, a simple docu story about 5 lads and their quest to meet Maradonna. Does what it says on the tin, my girlfriend liked it and she hates football. A great human story about some lads living their dream. Rent it.
