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.

Now if you, like I, love... and I mean LOVE old school hockey games. This is the movie to watch.
I could easily do without Jay Baruchel in this movie and in its sequel. He lines are beyond vulgar so are his actions. But since he is one of the writers, I give him a pass.
I watched it mainly because I'm a huge fan of Kim Coates, who's hilarious as a minor league hockey coach who's constantly aggravated and probably has an ulcer and suffers from IBS. As a hockey fan I enjoyed it a lot, although I probably missed out on a lot of inside jokes, since it's a Canadian film and I'm American. I could have done without the old "I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out" image, but I really am not familiar with Canada's minor league, so it may very well be authentic. Seann William Scott is very likeable as the big brute with a bigger heart. Alison Pill is so adorable I want to put her in my pocket. The humor is very different from a Hollywood film and that's a good thing. Liev Schreiber's role is far too small.
It was a very enjoyable film that could actually pass as a date movie because it's got romance in it, but not the over the top chick flick kind. It's a great compromise if you're debating with your girlfriend on what film to watch.
As anyone who has seen the movie will understand "It's hilarious!" Also a bit vulgar so don't watch it with grandma.
