Thompson, a former soccer star and now a fading coach, becomes increasingly angry as he sees big business dominate the management of his club. Beresford, director of the powerful BREAKER MORANT, had already adapted another work by Australian playwright David Williamson, DON'S PARTY. This

time around the talented Beresford again falls victim to his faithfulness to Williamson's usual conglomeration of screaming, complaining, and annoying people. The ins and outs of contemporary sports management is excellent subject matter-- as displayed by the superior NORTH DALLAS FORTY--but

Beresford's film lacks insight into a group of characters whose sympathetic plight is overshadowed by their exasperating behavior.
