Bend It Like Beckam (2003)

It's Saturday, and we're going to get out of the house for a while.

We shopped at Target, and Ross, and bought many, many shirts to make up for my ripping tendancy.

After that we were going to find a bite to eat, but the nearby Cheesecake Factory was totally packed and very pretentious looking, so we gave it a miss and went straight to the Village Square 8 cinemas for a showing of "Bend It Like Beckham".


It's cute. And fun. And although it will inevitably be compared to the Fat, Greek Wedding, it is different. Yes, there's a clash of cultures, but that's not all, and the characters have no embarassment about who they are and where they come from, and it's just great. Not predictable, and even the closing scenes were perfect and unexpected.
