'Bend It Like Beckham'

The Underdogs: The Hounslow Harriers Jess Bhamra (Parminder Nagra) wants to play soccer like David Beckham, but her parents want her to focus on her studies. The usual complications ensue, especially after friend Jules ( Keira Knightley) gets Jess on the Harriers soccer team. Luckily, Jess's parents relent in time for her to, well, bend it like Beckham during a penalty shot and win the tournament match. -- Andy Grieser 20th Century Fox
