Dates for the Diary: August 29

imageimage

Looking for something to do on the 29th of August?

If you’re in the States, you may want to strap on your best designer wedges and wiggle your way to the cinema.  The footie player packed Goal II – Living The Dream is coming to US-shores and there are numerous reasons why you should be watching: David Beckham, Raul, The Ramos, Robinho, Thierry Henry and Zizou all make appearances in the film as themselves. 

The standout performance, shockingly without recognition from the Academy Awards or BAFTAs, is the one milisecond-long clip of Iker Casillas in a hot tub (around 5.35 in). We’re not quite sure what the point of it is exactly, but, you know, he’s in a hot tub.  So give him an Oscar, already!

Of course, Goal II has been out on DVD everywhere else in the world for over a year, but judging by the amount of readers who emailed us about hot-tub-Iker, we’re thinking there may be some long queues at the theatres this month. Best bring your best shin-kickers and get practicing your side-eyes, gals.

Kickettes in the UK looking for something to get up to? Victoria Beckham will be at Harvey Nichols in Manchester from 11.00- 13.00.  She’ll be signing bottles of the new Beckham Signature fragrances For Him and For Her. Head on over and say hello. 

FYI, we’ve smelled the Signature for women and it’s actually very nice. Alas, we’re unlikely to make it our signature scent.  We’re still holding out for a bottle of Imperial Majesty by Clive Christian.

    I saw Goal I. Besides giggling at a plotline that tried to persuade the audience that an aspiring and brilliant young footballer would actually dream of playing for Newcastle United, it was quite craptastic. I understand that in the second installment, he moves on to Real Madrid. So much for the dream. :P

    Im so over Vic and Becks since I saw Yulia and Andriy out shopping in Liverpool today! And they were smiley, happy and parading their wonderful individual style through the city. They made my day. And shes still wearing sky high heels even with her baby bump. Along with the skin tight leggings and Tshirt, lol.

    The smoochy noises. Yep, officially dead. Bye bye.

  7. Ali says:

    Oh no, serious dilemma! Goal II already in my Netflix dvd queue, but should I just wait and see it on the big screen? What to do?! I could just watch it twice. Yes, I like that. Problem solved. Anybody know when Goal 3: (dream part of title tba) comes out?

  8. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    Iker!!!!!!! He’s too adorable in that clip for words. Btw seriously considering flying from Melbourne (Australia) to Manchester for the sole purpose of meeting Queen Posh – such is my devotion…

  9. The Fourth Official says:

    I've already seen Goal II, actually – it was on the movie playlist last time me and my sister flew to London. As well as United 93 and World Trade Centers. So… it was obvious choice for me. "In case your flight becomes a cruise, pull your lifejacket loose…"

  13. k2k2milan says:

    Ok, so the plotline might not be the greatest but who cares? I’m in it for obvious reasons.

    That and the fact that I don’t live in a soccer crazed country and am very deprived of the beautiful game and will take it in any shape or form I can get….especially when involving Iker Casillas and Raul…and Zizou all in one thing.

  14. k2k2milan says:

    Goal II : FINALLY! I’ve been waiting for forever for this movie to come out in North America.First time I saw the trailer of it, I started hyperventilating. <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/raspberry.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />

    I looked for it in every DVD place I could find in my area- but no luck.

    Does anyone know when/IF it’s releasing in Canada (in theatres or DVD)? Thanks in advance.

    Hot! that's the only word which be able to describe him…..the best part in those film is Ike in tub ;)

  16. SpaceCowgirl says:

    Goal 2! This movie is sooooo bad, but still awesome! Love it. Hot Iker in a Hot Tub :O) And a gorgeous close up of him near the end of the movie. But for a really good fix of footballers on film, you have to check out Real Madrid the Movie. Never have I used the pause and rewind buttons so much…

  17. Mrs. John Terry says:

    Is she still selling her perfume? Not a new product of the Beckham brand on sale? Like "Beckham Baked Beans" or something?

  18. DC says:

    finally! i've been waiting too long for this film. and now I finally ge to see Iker in the tub! goodie.

    Im Not Actually Bothered At The Perfume Thing, I cant Be Bothered To Move My But All The Way From Down South To Manchester, Then Spend All This Months Money On A Bottle Of Perfume That Has A Scribble Of A Signature On It And Lasts For A Couple Of Months. But I Love Goal II. x

    I have both Goal I and II on DVD and yes, they’re crap, and yes, I enjoy them. And I’m usually a complete film snob, so I can’t explain it other than to say…football players good. ;)
