I have seen nearly all the hooligan films. Football factory, Green Street etc so hearing about a spoof of these films did intrigue me. The humour of this film is spot and it suits the genre and the characters. Should the jokes have been high brow and clever they would have been out of place. The references to Football Factory and their florists the incredibly stereotypical undercover Police officer and the main hooligans themselves is brilliant. I was never expecting the jokes to be high brow. It would have put me off if they were. The plot is uncomplicated and rightly so. All in all I was impressed by this film. A good job from Nick Never and his team.
