It's not about Nick Park, the Wallace and Gromit creator, who again presents smart British humor through brilliant claymation. It's about watching this in America, where they mistakenly call football ... soccer. Check out the trailer. The entire film is about the crucial match that will decide the fate of stone age traditionalists against bronze age technocrats (all that in the same sentence), but there's barely a mention of the game in the trailer, and it is solely referred to as "football" in the movie. With the gradual downfall of 'American football', we may soon see it replaced by real football.
