Movie: Bend in Like Beckham

movie posterI saw Bend it Like Beckham today. I enjoyed it much more than I thought it would given the type of movie that it is. I'm partially biased perhaps because I find humor about conservative Asian families especially humorous. The mentioning of Santa Clara was also fun for the audience cheers.

My favorite line of the movie was probably "Jess: She called me a Paki, but I guess that's something you wouldn't understand. Joe: I'm Irish."

My only disappointment with the movie is that I thought that the tension meter between Jess and Jules felt swung back and forth without feeling very realistic. It seems like the writer thought that it was necessary to create the appropriate transitions in the story, but didn't render them fully.
