What is 'That Peter Crouch Film'?
'That Peter Crouch Film' is a one and half hour movie focused on the life of the former Stoke City and Liverpool striker and how he established himself as one of the most likeable names in the football fraternity.
The story puts light on how a tall, lanky, all-arms and legs player shunted at every step by almost every club he signed for, proved his doubters wrong and how he overcame the problems he faced as a professional footballer.
The movie explains the lows and highs a footballer experiences throughout their journey putting the spotlight on Crouch's career. From being booed by the English fans in 2005 (something Crouch describes as the lowest point in his career) to redeeming himself in front of the same set of fans in the 2006 World Cup, viewers can expect a roller-coaster of emotions throughout the show.
'That Peter Crouch Film' features some of the biggest names the forward met in his life from Harry Redknapp to Steven Gerard and some of his family members who stuck by him throughout his journey. When asked about his career Crouch calls it a "different kind of success story because it hasn’t been plain sailing", and the goal drought he had at Liverpool is a perfect example of the lows the former striker talks about.
But like he silenced his doubters at every other step during his career, this documentary is also a reflection of the same. And his podcast 'That Peter Crouch Podcast' which has garnered over 60 million followers and Therapy With Crouch'- where he elaborates on his relationship with his wife Clancy- play a huge role in getting the documentary the much-needed success it needs and deserves.
