    Hi beatlenuts.

    I'm sure all hockey fans have watched what is considered the best hockey movie of all time.....slapshot, and I agree, it is a ripper, but if I can suggest you guys either rent or download *cough* goon. It is a friggen awesome movie and I can't believe it wasn't released in Australia. A sporting movie with lots of fights.....c'moooooooon!

    It's a friggen must friggen see.

    And it stars....stiffler!!!!! (from american pie)

    And kinda based on a true story of one of the league's best fighters!

    Mixed bag (as usual.)

    I've read some that say 'meh' and others that say they really like it.

    I think you've got to treat it is 'it is what it is' and that may help the enjoyment.

    I know I'm not looking for an oscar worthy thought provoking masterpiece, so I think I've got the right mind set.

    Have yet to see it! sheesh
