"Bend it like Beckham"

Another fun film, although this failed to really meet up to my expectations. I didn’t find it particularly funny, where I was hoping to, but I guess it was quite insightful. A few things didn’t really hang together well to me, and I think the relationship between Jess and Joe was neither explained nor explored adequately. Oh yes, and the plot was incredibly predictable – could set your watch by the key events (heroine starts on journey, heroine meets mentor, heroine has crisis and temporarily abandons journey, etc).
Perfectly watchable though – good Saturday night entertainment.
