Six thirty-something friends, talent-less and unfit, form a seven-a-side football team and call their team Brazil. They plan to play soccer until they win.
This is a comedy of delusion, of the survival of the unfitest in the face of humiliation and inevitable defeat. On and off the pitch their movements are the same - shuffling, stumbling then staggering, the pratfalls of endearing losers.
Their most formidable opponents, of course, are the women they love but can't stand - demanding wives and girlfriends. Sexual adventures give way to prosaic thirty-something coupledom.
A feel-good movie and a hilarious buddy comedy, with football, sex and mid 30's crisis.
