Product 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 on-looking 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 to do is learn to skate.

Seann William Scott packed on some pounds for his role in Goon, and the extra weight jibes well with his comic instincts--he's had to ramp down his antic American Pie goof to fit the bulky, dull-witted protagonist of this off-the-wall picture. Scott plays Doug Glatt, whose thickheadedness may be a disappointment to his brainy family (Eugene Levy cameos as dad) but serves him awfully well in the role of hockey "enforcer." You know the type: not much of a skater, can't get the puck in the net, but if you need someone to come off the bench and lay an elbow into somebody's cheekbone, Doug Glatt is your guy. The amusing and impressive thing about the movie is that the script (by costar Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg) posits Doug not as a meanie but as a puzzled innocent who really, sincerely wants to help his team. Alison Pill is just right as the groupie touched by his dazed sweetness, and Liev Schreiber absolutely shines as hockey's most legendary tough guy, a weathered goon-among-goons whose badassery is announced in his giant Fu Manchu mustache. The movie aims for a tricky blend, and director Michael Dowse doesn't always make it: we're supposed to laugh at the exaggerated characters, but also eventually care about them, too. Oh, and there's also an enormous amount of blood-spilling and bone-cracking. Thanks to the generally jovial air and Scott's skillful performance, the patches of ice don't seriously slow this movie down. --Robert Horton

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME MOVIE! hockey fan or not! February 25, 2012
By Ali
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I am a semi-recent hockey fan, female, from California, and also a big movie fanatic in general, and I found this movie to be entertaining, funny, fun, not too gory or anything... The main character was consistently charming and endearing in a sincere way... The pace was good. As a "puckhead," I know what details are a lil bit exaggerated, but as a movie fanatic, the narrative was engaging, fast-paced, not too formulaic, adventurous, and simply sweet in all regards!!! I wish there were more movies like this out there! GO DOUGIE!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilariously Canadian May 30, 2012
This film one-ups the relentless verbal crudity, testosterone-fueled raunchiness, and bone-crunching violence of the legendary ice hockey movie "Slap Shot," combining it with the dry wit and doltish characters you may know from SCTV's "Great White North" sketches. Based on a memoir by hockey pro Doug Smith, it mixes in broad jokes about beer, women, Russians, and Québécois to make something quintessentially Canadian, yet it's also accessible to those of us who did not grow up with Molson running through our veins and visions of the Stanley Cup haunting our dreams.

"Goon" features an excellent cast of Canadians led by the winning Seann William Scott, perhaps best known for his role as Steve Stifler in the "American Pie" films. Scott plays bouncer Doug Glatt, a sweet-natured, dim-witted man-child who just happens to be very good at beating the crap out of people. After a fracas at a hockey game leads a local team to hire him, his thuggish efficiency on the ice gets him promoted to a minor-league club, the Halifax Highlanders. Coach Ronnie Hortense (Kim Coates) assigns him the task of protecting the team's high-scorer, Xavier Laflamme (Marc-Andre Grondin), a former prodigy now less interested in hockey than he is in cocaine and strippers.

Eugene Levy (also in "American Pie") is Doug's father, a doctor ashamed of his son's job as a hockey enforcer; Jay Baruchel (one of the screenwriters) is Doug's friend Pat, a rabid fan who hosts an amateurish cable program devoted to the sport; Alison Pill (Baruchel's real-life fiancée) is Doug's crush Eva, a "puck bunny" with a thing for hockey players; and Liev Shreiber (the only major star in the film) is renowned enforcer Ross "The Boss" Rhea, who becomes Doug's nemesis in the arena.

4.0 out of 5 stars what a happy surprise October 22, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
If you don't like this movie, you probably don't like over-the-top, unapologetic hockey violence or excessive swearing - and I'm afraid we could never be friends.

4.5 stars

I knew nothing of this before seeing it at the library, but having grown up playing a lot of hockey I will watch any of the very few hockey movies ever made. Slap Shot is of course the classic, but I've got to say I like this even more, as it really feels like Canada in so many ways, and hockey is to Canada what baseball, football and basketball are to the US, combined.

There are many absolutely hilarious moments, especially if you really love hockey and appreciate the absurdity of ice fighting. I had to hit pause maybe a dozen times so I could finish laughing. Goon is so Canadian and so precisely hockeyish; Hollywood will NEVER come this close to what hockey really is. And Scott is so good it's hard to believe; he always seemed like a basic jokester before, but he performs on another level here and makes his character truly come alive. Everybody is great in Goon except Baruchel, who is too over the top even for a satire like this. But he did co-write it, so slack shall be cut. Scott makes up for it with an incredibly earnest performance; honest to god, it's dang near Oscar-worthy in its low key brilliance. Liev Screiber also turns in a convincing and pleasantly low key take on the aging goon whom Scott must of course battle. That lack of constant over the top is why Goon is a little funnier than Slap Shot, all told. It's less a farce and more of a straight up comedy-drama.

The endless asides and subtle moments make Goon work, and the not-subtle-at-all violence might be the main thing that turns some folks off. But as someone who grew up watching the broad Street Bullies and laughing every time Dave the Hammer got on the ice, I found it all accurate.

5.0 out of 5 stars By far, the best since Slap Shot February 25, 2012
By Omnibot
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Warning - This film has very over the top dirty language. If that's not your thing don't post a review about this movie. On to the movie: I watched the movie with my wife who is not a huge sports fan at all. Neither does she like blood much. This movie had pretty much everything a man loves about a movie - Action, Sports, Fights, Overcoming bull crap in your life. Then it throws in just enough of a romance to keep anyone else with a pulse interested in the rest of the movie. It's not too long, it's gets to the point and it pulls you in from the start if you're a hockey fan.

Just remember it's rated R.

What is cool is this is based on a true story of a guy who used to box and who is now currently a police officer (seek out the documentary short about this guy). Also do not miss the end credits to see the real Doug fight it out!! :)
Had to watch this a 2nd time as I was laughing too hard and missed some of the jokes. Great movie! Can't remember the last time I wanted to see a movie twice but will buy for sure when it is released on Blu Ray (mabye latter this year?)
