Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
An enjoyable comedy that older teens and adults are sure to enjoy. I predict most opinions will be "Very Good," which indicates an above average movie.
You don't need to be a soccer fan to enjoy this movie, because there's actually very little soccer shown. It's mainly a movie of teen rebellion against the old traditions of India. It's similar to My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but not quite as funny.
There's a fair amount of profanity, but for families with older teens, Bend It Like Beckham is a fine movie to take the family to see.
What happens when you bend the rules to follow your dreams? Bend It Like Beckham is a new British film about a teenage girl named Jess (Parminder Nagra) living in London who must make a choice between following the traditions of her Indian family or pursuing her dream of becoming a soccer sensation. Unlike her older sister, Pinky (Archie Panjabi), who abides by her parent's wishes and marries a proper Indian boy, Jess aspires to achieve the success of her idol, soccer superstar David Beckham. When she meets Jules (Keira Knightley), who also shares a passion for soccer, the two find strength in their drive to be the best. They take their talents to the field and lead their team to victory against all odds. When they both fall head over cleats for their soccer coach, Joe (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), their friendship is tested. When their team prepares to face their toughest opponent, Jess must confront not only her loyalty to her best friend and her family, but ultimately to herself.
