His years of rough-housing on the rink finally catching up with him, hockey ‘enforcer’ Doug Glatt - whose job it is to fight dirty with the opposing team - is on the verge of retirement and starting a family, after he gets knocked out by opponent Anders Cain. When he discovers Cain is going to captain his old team, Doug decides to gets in training for a big comeback to show this newcomer he’s skating on thin ice.
We like it because:
This star-studded, pumped up sequel to the smash hit comedy Goon is a foul-mouthed, action-packed and hilarious excursion into the wild, knock-em-out world of ice hockey that sees the original cast returning for more bone- cracking and rib-tickling mayhem.
American Pie’s legendary Stifler, Seann William Scott, is simply sensational - putting as much humour as he does pathos - as the don’t give a puck hockey star Doug Glatt (based on the life of American maverick Doug Smith) - a role he was born to play, at least twice. He’s supported here with a top drawer cast including Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan, Spotlight) and Alison Pill (Midnight In Paris, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), reprising their roles from the first film, Elisha Cuthbert (24) and Callum Keith Rennie (Californication), with 22 Jump Street’s Wyatt Russell as Glatt’s nemesis, and Deadpool’s T. J. Miller on scene-stealing form as inappropriate sports commentator Chad Bailey.
An assured feature directing debut from comedy star Jay Baruchel (This Is The End, Knocked Up, How To Train Your Dragon), this is a film you can’t help but love - crass but charming, packed with eccentric and loveable characters, and just the right balance of sports carnage and comedy to make you wince and hoot in quick succession.
An irreverent and riotous sports comedy that recalls classics like Slap Shot and Bad News Bears, as well as the close-to-the-knuckle, belly laugh comedy of Baruchel’s stablemates Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow, this is that rare occasion when the sequel might just be better than the original - no pucking joke.
