    This irreverent and hilarious look into the world of professional sports has Paul Newman as the coach of the Chiefs, a struggling minor-league hockey team. To build up attendance at their games, management signs up the Hanson Brothers, three hard-charging players whose job is to demolish the opposition. Slap Shot's outrageous comedy, hard-hitting action, memorable lines and unforgettable characters have made this classic one of the all-time best sports movies ever!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, Funny, a CLASSIC for ANY Hockey Fan May 14, 2000
    Format:DVD
    Slap Shot is a great hockey comedy. It's a hilarious, vulgar, completely wild joyride through the trials of a failing 70's steelmill-town based, utterly amateur hockey team. Failing, that is, until their players resort to pure violence in an attempt to keep their franchise alive.
    Paul Newman plays the womanizing player/coach who, after a series of embarassing losses (including one to a visitng team's center who's flat drunk) needs to work with a 3 brother gang of misfits, who all look alike and have an incredibly aggressive style of playing.
    Chaos insues when Newman's character decides to finally play these "goons" with his other teammates, and he watches as the fan base increases when they proceed to physically demolish - without any love for the game - the opposing teammates in an series of hysterical scenes that combine the best in hockey photography with hilariously explicit dialouge and violence. The shot of the goon's nonchalanty skating past the visitor's box and smacking each of them in the head with their sticks is classic.
    This action scenes in this movie is everything you wished your NFL highlight tapes to be. The DVD itself is excellent quality, including the true film soundtrack (copyright limitation prevented some of the songs from appearing on the VHS and cable versions).
    Extra bonus features are pretty nonexistent - just some scene selections and generic Actor Profiles that were prelevant in the first generation of DVDs created a couple years ago - but the quality and entertainment value of the movie more than makes up for these shortcomings.

    5.0 out of 5 stars At last, the original version is saved July 25, 1999
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I have just received (and watched) the DVD version of "Slap Shot", and I thank the powers that be for restoring the original sound track to the movie. The generic music that was released on VHS took the heart out of the movie. With the restoration, and the excellent digital quality of the movie, my favorite film is complete. Now, a full 5 stars only because I can't give it 10.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Hockey Movie! January 22, 1999
    By A Customer
    Format:DVD
    Paul Newman is brilliant in what has to be the greatest hockey movie ever made. Newman plays Reggie Dunlop an over-the-hill player/coach of a last place hockey club, which is about to go bankrupt as the steel town of Charlestown is about to close its primary source of income, the steel mill. With nothing left to lose Coach Dunlop begins to "use his imagination and roll with it" by getting his players to play "Old-Time Hockey" in hopes of getting intrest in selling the team to a group of Florida Businessmen. Laughs abound from an excellent supporting class that includes Strother Martin, Michael Ontkean, Jennifer Warren, Lindsay Crouse and Jerry Houser. I found the DVD quality to be excellent. The greatest addition on the DVD over the video is the restored original soundtrack, with 70's classics from Leo Sayer, Elton John and Maxine Nightengale. If you love hockey, comedy and Paul Newman, this is a must have!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Newmans Best on DVD!!!! March 9, 1999
    By A Customer
    For years after going to Hockey games one of my Favorite things was going home and watching SLAP SHOT on VHS.. yes the quality was Awful... But why lie this film is such a Riot I LOVED IT!!! So when I bought it for my DVD player It was the first pre-1980 movie I bought and I have to say I watched it (after I went to a Kings game none the less) in a whole new light.... The Hockey sequences (especially in the Beginning) Sounded Incredible...I noticed little things that I have never seen before (look at the Hansons Jackets for example).. I was BLOWN AWAY!!!Also It is the original score of the film.... But I never know there were FLEETWOOD MAC songs in this Movie... (My VHS version has some crappy filler songs) Overall it was a great viewing experience and a MUST for all Hockey fans

    5.0 out of 5 stars awsome, and now i understand why... January 7, 2005
    By O. Rios
    Format:VHS Tape
    it truly is considered one of the greatest sports movies of all time. LOL!!!

    Slap Shot is about the Charleston Chiefs of the American Federal Hockey League, a minor league Hockey system. The Chiefs are in financial debt and rumors are that the team is about to be sold, attendence is bad, and the mill is about to close for good.

    so Paul Newman, coach/player comes up with the perfect way to draw people and interest in the team, put on a show. He starts by saying things about one of the goalies wife, and this leads to the first awsome brawl of the game.

    with the addition of the Hanson brothers, the movie gets awsome. the hanson brothers play so brutal, you'd be glad they were on your team. they hit, hook, spear, slash, and beat the crap out of opposing teams, which starts to lead to a fan following and a booster club.

    Newman turns one of the soft spoken players into Killer, a blood mess like one of the fellas called him. he puts a bounty on the opposing coach, and starts a rumor that the team is about to be bought out by a florida retirement group.

    they make it all the way to the title game, and then that's where i really don't understand it. they get into a huge fight, and the one guy that won't fight cause he wants to play it straight, starts to skate around undressing, leading to the opposing team hitting the ref getting disqualified. i don't really understand that whole part, but other than that, the movie is awsome.

    it really captures the realness that these minor league hockey teams go through, like helping out with fashion shows.

    Slap Shot is a great movie, i hope they another hockey movie in the near future as great as slap shot.

    Slap Shot 25th Anniversary Issue
    There might be something wrong with your DVD player, Michael. I own that edition of the DVD and have no problem switching the audio and subtitle modes. Have you tried the "Audio" key, "Subtitle" key or "Anykey" on your remote to switch the modes? I hope you can... Read More
