le plot starts from then on! When a young kid blackmails him into doing one last heist and his fence encourages him, the film starts well.  Robert De Niro plays a poor creator that has about as much death as any TV daytime curator.  This film is one to watch if you like watching paint dry, but it is better than most of the new films out at present.

Film review:- MIKE BASSETT
                      ENGLAND MANAGER

Tagline: He Knows F.A. About Football.

Directed by Steve Barron, this is a very funny film.  Even though it has had a bad write up, it is a great look at how bad, we in England, look at our football team.  It is shot in a real documentary form and has the feel of a Channel 4 production.  This is a classic film for UK audiences, but will prove hard to get viewers outside the UK.  You don't have to like football to watch it, in fact it is just as well you don't.  This puts the boot into English football culture, "It's not the winning that counts!"  This is a great feel good film to get your mind off the international news.

First credits only:- Ricky Tomlinson playing Mike Bassett, Amanda Redman playing Karine Bassett, Philip Jackson playing Lonnie Urquart, Bradley Walsh playing Dave Dodds, Phill Jupitus, Ulrich Thomsen playing Dr. Hans Shoegaarten, Robert Putt, Martin Bashir playing Himself, Pelé playing Himself, Chris McQuarry, Dean Lennox Kelly playing Kevin Tonkinson, Terry Kiely playing England Footballer, Dean Holness playing England Footballer and Natasha Kaplinsky playing Sky News Reader
