Are you looking for a movie to watch on Netflix this summer? Have you seen all the big Hollywood movies and now you are looking for a hidden gem that would serve you as the perfect summer movie on Netflix in 2019?
Yesterday, I found a movie on Netflix that might qualify as a perfect Netflix summer movie for the summer of 2019. Well, the movie wasn’t created in 2019, but it is a 2017 movie. In other words, maybe you have seen it already, but I do believe this is a gem that has gone into history without a lot of people noticing it.
Did you like Sister Act 2?
But, what is Holy Goalie all about? Well, have you ever watched Sister Act 2? Do you remember what the story is all about? Someone wants to close down the St. Francis school in San Francisco, and now the nuns and the leader of the school turns to Mary Francis for help (Whoppi Goldberg). That is the basic storyline of Sister Act 2, and in a way it is quite similar to the story in Holy Goalie.
This time it is about a school for priests that will leave its current location to keep on their teachings at another location. Their current place will be turned into a luxury hotel. Just before this news is shared with the leader, they are also given a new teacher, a guy who transferred money from the Vatican bank to pay for a debt he had. He is almost excommunicated from the church, but instead he is sent to the middle of nowhere to serve there.
As the new teacher discovers the truth about the future of the community (with its building turning into a hotel), he discovers a way to save it all… by creating a fantastic football team that will spread its news all the way to the Vatican. And now the story keeps going and they are playing football to save their buildings.
Holy Goalie is a funny movie and it might become a really nice hit for many people during the summer of 2019. It is also worth noticing that there is a romantic story intertwined into it all, but what will the priest do about it? Will he quit the priest school to marry and have kids, or will he throw away all obstacles to stay on the path to the priesthood?
Stream Holy Goalie on Netflix
This is a Spanish movie and you can find it right here on Netflix. I have a feeling the movie is available in almost all Netflix regions, meaning there will be no need to change your Netflix region in order to stream this movie. if you still cannot find it, simply visit US Netflix, Canadian Netflix or UK Netflix, and you will be able to stream Holy Goalie on Netflix straight away.
Holy Goalie has a 5,2/10 score on IMDB, while it hasn’t received any ratings yet on Rotten Tomatoes. I would probably give it a 6,5/10 score or something like that, but I have got to say that this is a movie with potential and I believe that many people will love this. I didn’t love it, but I still had a great time watching it.
