Kicking goals with your heart
11 September 2018 | by mblakey33See all my reviews

At first it didn't have huge expectations about this movie. David Callinan was one of my favourite comedians growing (Loved Skithouse) so that was the main reason why I wanted to see this movie. As a person who loves Country Footy, this movie kicked a lot of goals close to my heart. From the killer local community nicknames like Porterhouse,Sheepy, Carpert Burn etc... to saving the club by recruiting refugees to their side.
