Trivia

The phrase "up 'n' under" (a catchphrase of real-life rugby commentator Eddie Waring) is a term used in rugby. An "up 'n' under" is a high kick angled so that the catcher, while looking skyward at the descending ball, receives at the same time as the ball, one or more chasing players travelling at speed, into his abdomen. The intention is to dislodge the ball, or even persuade the catcher to not bother making the catch. See more »

So bad it's.....well, crap really.
14 September 2004 | by oimackeySee all my reviews

With so many famous comedy actors you would think this could raise a few laughs. Unfortunately it is so so predictable and most of the characters and jokes are one dimensional and so clichéd. A waste of time and no doubt lottery money has been wasted. Even viewed as a harmless bit of fun this film must rate as poor. The storyline is obvious and uninspired, the acting wooden and the sporting action - as in so many British sports films - a joke. Am i the only person who thinks Neil Morrisey is the most overrated, luckiest and annoying comedy actors around. Got to remark on Samantha Janus' arse....i don't think i've seen a better one on screen. A perfect 10/10. Absolutely gorgeous!! Should have showed a lot more of it.
