Storyline Heading
Labelled an outcast by his brainy family, a bouncer overcomes long odds to lead a team of under performing misfits to semi-pro hockey glory, beating the crap out of everything that stands in his way.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - While this comedy is focused on hockey, it is not a typical sports film since it focuses on not on the games but fights in games. With the emphasis on fighting comes a lot of bloody violence and dark humor. Fans of star Seann William Scott will enjoy this showcase but other known stars such as Liev Schreiber, Jay Baruchel, and Eugene Levy have much smaller roles. Constant language, violence, and sexual situations make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The best thing about "Goon" is not the hockey action, or who wins and who loses. It's Doug's rags-to-riches story.

NY Post Full Review
Good And yet 'Goon' easily takes the title of second-best hockey comedy I've ever seen.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Not content with his job as a bouncer at a local Beantown bar and a bit of an embarrassment to his accomplished family, Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) dreams of the kind of success enjoyed by minor league hockey goon Ross Rhea (Liev Schreiber). When a chance encounter with an on-ice thug leads to a bloody fist fight that Doug easily wins, the coach of the Halifax Highlanders sees potential in this mammoth sized man who is only hampered by his lack of any hockey playing ability and his brother's old figure skates. Standing up to the taunts of the other players, Doug manages to join the team, and with the encouragement of his hockey obsessed best friend (Jay Baruchel) quickly becomes a rising star. Soon he'll have the opportunity to face off against Ross "The Boss" Rhea and perhaps finally land a girlfriend. Now - all he needs is to learn how to skate.
