We are Benney's Army!!!!!!!!!!!
This is one of the funniest films of teh year it stars Max Beesley and Richard E Grant who both live in a tiny village and Geore Gus (Richard E Grant) owns his own pub and has had pub football team that has an annual match once a year for the past 99 years. When Wullie Smith (Max Beesley) takes over as the manager of "Bennys" another pub he has just 14 days to train a team that may win the match for the first time ever!!!

Neil Morrissey as a bloke called "Piss-Off" this is because if any one asks him a question he answers with "Piss Off". He is a former pro but when he found his wife in the team bath with the rest of the team he retired and never played again. Both teams are desperate to get him play and when he turns up at the match in Gus's team colours they may be a bit of trouble for "Benny's"

Wullie has lived there all his life and when he childhood sweethart comes back there may be a bit of skills required off the pitch as well.

The only think wrong about this film is that it is remarkably similar to John Godber's film Up 'N' Under except this film is about football and nort rugby

This being Mick Davis first ever film I look forward to seeing more of his presentations and hopes he keeps the same humor in the next film he makes.

IMDB members have given this 7.2 out of 10 which I think is better than what the voters have given it. 8.5/10
