Description

Not content with his job as a bouncer, Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) dreams of a more rewarding job and gaining his parents’ respect. When a chance encounter with an on-ice thug leads to a fistfight that Doug easily wins, the onlooking coach sees Doug’s potential, in spite of his lack of any hockey playing ability. Joining the team and with the encouragement of his best friend (Jay Baruchel), Doug quickly becomes a rising star. Soon he’ll have the opportunity to face off against the infamous league thug, Ross Rhea (Liev Schreiber), perhaps finally land a girlfriend, and stick to a job he enjoys. Now all he needs is to learn how to skate.

    Good acting with a decent story and a satisfing end. The violence needs to be in the movie, but the idiot Hocky Loving friend could have been left out. Worth the rent.
  • Love it!! A must see!

    This movie was a surprise and a pleasant one at that. Great characters and acting with a equally good plot. I highly recommend it.

    Thought this would be a soulless movie with lots of violence. Turned out to have great acting and great characters... The kind of movie you're glad you spent the time on. Sean William Scott is terrifically understated in the lead role.
  • Really funny

    I can't believe I didn't hear more about this movie. Super funny. Of course there were a lot of crude jokes, which were mostly delivered by Jay Baruchel's character (the least funny part of this flick), but the rest was hilarious. Dude from American Pie was great as a dummy tough guy.
