  • Average movie. I think “Bend it like Beckham” has a convincing plot and a wonderful message, but sometimes it was a little bit boring too. There was excellent acting, cinematography and music, but on the other hand the movie is full of the most obvious cliché’s. I guess there are just a lot of good and bad things I can say about this film. All in all I was not very impressed, but it was not a disappointment neither.
