Football Days review

Foreign comedies don't travel well. Jokes can be too nation-specific, subtitles hamper the laughs or perhaps you're just watching South America's equivalent of Mean Machine. Antonio is just out of prison. Normally violent and angry, his new-found love of therapy-speak has helped him control his rages. Some of the time. His best friend Jorge suffers from verbal diarrhoea. And, hilariously, actual diarrhoea, too. Getting their wires crossed, the two mistakenly believe that setting up a seven-a-side football team will help the other. Yet they keep losing. Antonio can barely contain his rage. Jorge's girlfriend leaves him. Some of the team get a rash from a hooker. There's escapades involving disgruntled wives, kidnapped babies and pig training. Usually accompanied by a sound of trombone that hasn't been heard since Confessions Of A Window Cleaner. An undeniable own goal.
