At last, a sportsman the British can be proud of...

In the sleepy English seaside town of Torquay, the game reserved for geriatrics and pensioners is taken VERY seriosuly. None more so than the reigning champion Ray Speight (James Cromwell - 'Babe'), conservative and stuffy he has been Torquay's home grown hero for over 20 years... but now his title is threatened...

Cliff Starkey (Paul Kaye) a young pretender from the wrong side of town, is daring to go up against him. Armed with his sexy bad-boy persona and a flashy American agent Rick (Vince Vaughn 'Swingers'), Cliff is a fresh and exciting new sex symbol in the game. In fact, he is fast turning Lawn Bowls into the biggest spectator sport in England - possibly the world! To add insult to injury, Cliff's biggest fan is his new girlfriend Kerry (Alice Evans)... Ray's Daughter!

Nothing on Crackerjack, but had a few chuckles.....just a few mind you.

The lead was a little bit much for me, but I guess that was the idea of the movie.
