While watching the Premier League this year, two of my friends (Steven Bradshaw and Paul Child) came up with a great game. Basically, you substitute a footballer’s name into a movie title and make it as funny as possible. It’s called Filmballers.
Filmballers: Film-Based Footballer Puns 4 U
I’m nowhere near as good at this game as those guys (my football knowledge lets me down). The best I could muster were lines like Suarezevoir Dogs, or The Big Lewandowski (terrible). Our WhatsApp thread contained some absolute corkers though, and failing to make much of an impact, Steve suggested a fantastic way for me to contribute.
So I present below, 20 of our greatest Filmballer lines (mainly from Steve and Paul), mocked up in Photoshop as posters by yours truly. Plus, I made a little time-lapse video of the making of ‘Brave Hart’. Enjoy!
