Not content with his job as a bouncer, Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) dreams of a more rewarding job and gaining his parents’ respect. When a chance encounter with an on-ice thug leads to a fistfight that Doug easily wins, the onlooking coach sees Doug’s potential, in spite of his lack of any hockey playing ability. Joining the team and with the encouragement of his best friend (Jay Baruchel), Doug quickly becomes a rising star. Soon he’ll have the opportunity to face off against the infamous league thug, Ross Rhea (Liev Schreiber), perhaps finally land a girlfriend, and stick to a job he enjoys. Now all he needs is to learn how to skate.

Critics Consensus: Goon is a crude slapstick comedy with well-formed characters and a surprising amount of heart.
Bloody sports dramedy about brutal life of hockey enforcer.
