This is such a brilliant film, great fun with a cast of incredible actresses just bumbling their way to the Superbowl. It’s emotional from the start and only gets more and more so as layers are revealed. You wouldn’t expect Tom Brady to be much of an actor, but he gets away with it, and you can tell he means it when he does his little speech.

They say this is inspired by a true story but it barely is - no one broke into the coordinator booth and gave Tom Brady a good talking to which turned everything around for one of the greatest NFL comebacks of all time. It’s not at all believable, but it is lovely, so who cares?

Rating: 5 / 5
