Sexy Soccer (2003)

The following is from the DVD package; On a losing streak, soccer coach Rolando owes money to a loan shark and needs a winning team to ease his financial worries. With both his wallet and his life on the line, Rolando comes up with an ingenious plan. He creates an all-female soccer team composed of beautiful women in skimpy outfits. These girls donít play by the rules, and they have a knack for distracting the competition. With this irresistible team, Rolando might just have a winner.

Sexy Soccer is an interesting title for this shot-on-video movie. Firstly, it is certainly not sexy, though this is a purely subjective concept. If you decide to watch this, you might find that it is sexy. To each, his own.

Secondly, there is hardly any soccer. Quite a number of scenes take place on a soccer court where the cast members shake their asses and expose their breasts to the opposing team. Director Dick Lau Tin-Sze's choice of slow motion effects only serve to enhance the fact that these actresses have no athletic skills, which goes well with their lack of acting abilities.

Thirdly, I think this is supposed to a comedy. It didn't work out. There are a couple of cute Cantonese word plays but the whole thing falls flat. Pardon the pun.
