What do I know about football? Not much, even more so about Foosball. But that did not stop me from enjoying a fun, funny animation film called “Foosball: The Unbeatables”. This latest animation whose theme focuses on the popular sport of football/soccer is something the whole kid-dom will laugh about and talk about because it is just plain funny. The kind of funny that even young girls and adults won’t be able to suppress their laughter despite a disinterest in the sport or bar game. In a nutshell, the movie is just too “animated” to ignore like fireworks every few minutes.
The story is a bit complicated . . . talking about a boy who loves a bar game, angers another boy who is talented in football and eventually becomes a football star, becomes a revenge target by him, gets into a love triangle with the football star, must win the re-match or lose his town, has a team of toys to coach the underdogs. But it doesn’t matter how bizarre the story goes because the toy characters are so lovable and hilarious, and the story ends in a heart-warming way. For this movie, you simply just throw logic out the window and just embrace the fantasy and the moment. I’m sure your kids won’t bother to analyze the story anyway because they are so busy laughing at the antics and character flaws of the foosball toys patterned from actual football players apparently. As much as you may scoff at the thought, you just might get caught up in the game and start cheering for the underdogs. Yeah, yeah . . . just go watch it. Foosball: The Unbeatables opens in SM Cinemas on October 1.
