132. GOAL! The Dream Begins

            Even though this movie has a really really cheesy title this is one awesome movie. Its from England so its not that well known in the states but this soccer themed movie is top notch.
           Goal follows the story of Santiago. From young mexican child crossing over the border into the US to a grown man living in LA with his dad. His dad has the american dream of owning his own business (landscaping) and his son following in his footsteps. But Santiagos first love is Soccer or Futbol. When a chance meeting with a scout for Manchester United leads to a tryout with the big clubs he jumps at the chance despite his fathers wishes.
          What follows next is a fish out of water story of his rise to thru the ranks still he makes it to the big time. The movie is very funny, touching and even makes soccer or football exciting. Give this movie a shot even if you dont like soccer or football. Even if sports movies arent your thing.

Check it out. Final Verdict: Worth owning.
