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.
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; over 30 S-words; 1 GD; many others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sex with related nudity. VIOLENCE: Lots of bloody fistfights. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, tobacco, cocaine. ACTION: Hockey action and fights. COMEDY: Physical humor, wisecracks, dark humor.
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.
