A very fun, lighthearted movie that examines what it's like to be a teen in London from Indian heritage. A girl who dreams of being a great soccer player gets the chance to play on a team at the same time her parents want her to begin learning how to be a proper Indian bride. As one culture collides with the other, there are many comedic opportunities that will have you laughing and you'll walk out of the theater glad for the experience.

There are many individual elements and characters that are worth appreciating, and the ending is very satisfying. You'll probably find yourself talking about "Bending it Like Beckham" with others that have seen the film, plus everyone who hasn't.

After not expecting to like this film (it's a difficult one to promote accurately), I was very pleasantly surprised. Highly recommended!

"Bend it Like Beckham" is a British comedy on a sport that the film industry has been largely ignored, and that is soccer. I believe that the last movie on the subject of soccer (and I hope I'm wrong) is the 1981 film "Victory" in which Slvester Stallone led an American team against the Nazis. That film was made over 20 years ago.

I confess that I love to watch Soccer on television, and I don't want to complain, but a least get a feature film on the subject once in a while. In "Beckham," the film tells of a girl name Jess, who loves to play the game of soccer. The problem is that she's playing her beloved sport against the wishes of her Hindu family, who planned other things for her.

"Bend it Like Beckham" is a comic oasis in a sea of recently released bad comedies. This film celebrates family and sports which cames together very nicely. So there aren't any big name performers in this film. Big Deal! See the film anyway. It's still a good movie.

Solid, feel-good flick. Almost rates a \"see now\", but there isn\'t much in this film that hasn\'t been done numerous times. That said, it is still very much worth seeing.
