    I hate this cover. I like the movie poster cover with the Indian lady's back carrying soccer shoes.

    I prefer the R2 cover, which used the UK poster art:

    Perhaps someone can make a quality copy of the R2 and post it as a replacement cover. It's much better.

    I think the Region 4 cover is even better than the Region 2 which has the same picture of the two young women but also the old ladies in the background.

    AHA!

    I KNEW this was secretly a Lesbian Porn film! What else could a bizarre title like Bend it like Beckham be other than a porn title!

    What's that big black and white circly thing in the first poster anyway--someone's sick idea of an all american baseball?!

    I don't think it's real. Not only is there photoshop aliasing on the text, theres the logo from apple.com Fox trailers on the right side.

    Still, considering the current state of DVD covers it could very well be real.

    Fascinating. Judging by the taglines, R4 clearly does not have Aloo Gobi as part of its Indian cuisine, and yet R2 & R3 do.

    Anyway, surely you don't cook chapatis, you bake them?

    Mmmm, curry...[​IMG]
