A Shot to Glory (2000)
Soundtrack by by Mark Knopfler.

Archetypal cliche ridden story of a troubled "star" player helping a non league Scottish avoid closure.

Ally McCoist and Didier Agathe are  involved.

An absolute crock.

Escape to Victory is a remake of a Hungarian film.

The stadium they use in Coulomb, Paris was use for the “Chariots of Fire” Olympics in the 20s and a World Cup Final (1934?).

I’d just like to add the real Olympics and WC Final

Good shout.

One of the best. One of my old acquaintances is in it. He plays the male friend who really does “love”Beckham.

He also has the glory in the first season of League of Gentlemen of being presented a Creme Brûlée cassette from Les....”It’s a shot business”

Stan Collymore was in Basic Instinct 2. I think he gets killed in the opening sequence. I don't think there was any football in the film although I could be wrong as when I attempted to watch the film it was so bad I didn't make it all the way through to the end. I did last longer than Stan did though.

Way back in 2006, when it was mentioned on here that Collymore was appearing in Basic Instinct 2, erstwhile poster Mark Fletcher quipped:

So it's a bit like the original then? You get a glimpse of a c*** in that one too

Oh I do miss Fletch. And Mazrim. And maybe even Gregnash a little bit.  Even that turd-obsessed loon who's name temporarily escapes me was good for a giggle with his "cupping slenders" comments.

When Saturday Comes is in the "so bad its good" category, Mel Sterland telling Sean Bean he's shit, then 10 minutes later asking him to take a last minute penalty in a cup game against Man Utd.

Ray Winstone in There's only one Jimmy Grimble was atrocious. It's not a bad film though
