Find out in this action packed international thriller featuring Ving Rhames and Kelly Hu.
The 1st yr focuses on a small Canadian town called Briarside, Ontario, and its Pee-Wee hockey team called the Farqueson Funeral Home Warriors. They are gearing up for a big tournament in the city of Chateauguay, Quebec. The hockey action is limited but we see a lot of antics by psycho hockey dad, Barry McConnell, who looks at Chateauguay as a stepping stone for his son Robbie on the way to the NHL. We've all seen hockey parents from hell and boy do these characters imitate the craziness of youth hockey.
Don't believe this is art imitating life? Go down to any amateur hockey rink in North America and see for yourself. The second yr kinda dragged, as the plot got old. But the first yr is a gem. This is a very accurate reflection of hockey culture. If you don't think it's funny, you're the one this movie is portraying.
If you enjoy some solid acting in between the fights, this had it. The fights are well choreographed and fun to watch if you don't mind a pretty high splatter rate.
Top marks to Kelly Hui and Robert Carlyle for making the characters interesting so I cared about what happened to them.
Pre-screen before watching with your kids, however. There's a touch of profanity in the first season (nothing terrible, but that's my subjective opinion). The second season contains a dose of adult subject that many would likely find unsuitable for kids under 12 (and maybe even older).
If you live in Minnesota and your kids play (or played) association hockey, you'll LOVE the protagonist's plan to extend his house into the neighboring township to gain residency through a construction project he calls, "The long house."
