Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There are no surprises here, with father-son crisis and reconciliation, scaled-down quasi-Bollywood production numbers and the climactic big game all arriving on cue.
Rotten: [A] pleasant timewaster, which has a good cast but a not-so-good script.
Rotten: With a script credited to five writers including its star Vinay Virmani, it is a movie that keeps skating madly off in different directions and desperately needs more coaching than director Robert Lieberman provides.
Heartfelt and entertaining
My son brought this home and I was like, what the hell is this, a new hockey movie that I hadn't heard about? (my whole family plays hockey) so I was excited. We started watching and I was scratching my head, still thinking what the hell is this? Anyway, it's so corny and 'out there' it might be off putting at first, but if you let yourself appreciate it's qualities, passion and message about the sport and the values of tradition it's an easy movie to adore. Lots of funny moments and a fun soundtrack. Best moment was a scene with Rob Lowe in a Leather jacket, but under his jacket he was wearing a #10 Mustangs t-shirt. My 11 year old son noticed that...very proud :)
Fun and inspiring
I saw this movie with the kids and found it to be inspiring! It’s all a matter of perspective...
Im a big fan of hockey, I saw this movie was a comedy and thaught "hey hockey and a comedy? should be good!" well not so much. It was bad i couldnt even finish the movie! Major let down!
