A remote hockey-obsessed town populated by 633 of the most eccentric characters you'd ever want to meet, Mystery is the kind of place where nothing ever changes. But then life as they know it gets turned completely upside down! When a publicity stunt brings the world-famous New York Rangers -- and the national spotlight -- to Mystery for a game with the local team of weekend warriors, the whole town rises to meet the challenge of a lifetime! Also starring Mary McCormack (True Crime, Deep Impact) and Lolita Davidovich (Play It To The Bone, Jungle 2 Jungle) in another critical favorite from the hit-making director of Austin Powers 1 and 2 -- you'll stand and cheer as this ragtag bunch shows that nothing can melt their dreams of a miracle on ice!

    Fantastic, but it appears ITunes is selling old version - HBO is showing this Friday on with a new soundtrack I love. I'll wait to purchase the updated version
  • No mystery in this film

    By TRK02
    While definitely not Oscar material or worthy of a cult following, this is an enjoyable film - easy to watch, no big action scenes, and just enough hockey shots (IMHO.) Not nearly as bad as the Rotten Tomatoes critics made it out to be….. Interesting to see Russell Crowe with two of the same actors as were in "Robing Hood" - although obviously much younger. All-in-all…. I liked it. Nice to watch a movie that has weather and scenery that's different than SoCal.
  • The true emotion of playing ice hockey

    By bigtoe1953
    May no be Academy Award worthy but if you have ever played or wanted to no what ice hockey is all about, watch this movie and then you will understand. Very entertaining and emotionally true.

  • Wonderful Feel Good Movie, Great Cast, Great Story, Great Moral Ending

    The original movie that tried to recreate the emotional feeling of the Olympic win ("do you believe in miracles") by the US Hockey team against all odds, way back when, was extremely disappointing and I figured there was just no way to recreate the exhileration actually experienced during those Olympic games. That original movie was a disappointment. HOWEVER, THIS MOVIE HELD ALL THOSE FEELINGS THAT WE ALL EXPERIENCED during that Olympics. I don't even like hockey, but this movie actually was exciting to watch. The cast, story and direction were EXCEPTIONAL. I'll watch this movie A LOT, so was glad I purchased. Edge of your seat excitement for the underdog, and the winners (because they really were)!!
