About the Movie

With Russell Crowe (The Insider, A Beautiful Mind), Hank Azaria (Godzilla, The Birdcage), and Burt Reynolds leading an incredible all-star cast, here's a fun, uplifting, action-packed story that everyone will love! A remote hockey-obsessed town populated by 633 of the most eccentric characters you'd ever want to meet, Mystery is the kind of place where nothing ever changes. But then life as they know it gets turned completely upside down! When a publicity stunt brings the world-famous New York Rangers -- and the national spotlight -- to Mystery for a game with the local team of weekend warriors, the whole town rises to meet the challenge of a lifetime! Also starring Mary McCormack (True Crime, Deep Impact) and Lolita Davidovich (Play It To The Bone, Jungle 2 Jungle) in another critical favorite from the hit-making director of Austin Powers 1 and 2 -- you'll stand and cheer as this ragtag bunch shows that nothing can melt their dreams of a miracle on ice!

Mystery, Alaska

This movie is pretty much amazing. It is really funny and is an awsome hockey story. There is A LOT of language in this movie though. If you do like hockey movies though, i strongly recommend this one along with MIRACLE.

Best hockey movie ever!

Great story and also funny. This was one of those movies that was overlooked by alot of people. I can't count how many times I've watched the DVD of this.

Can't WAIT

This movie is awesome, being a diehard hockey fan this movie really brings out what hockey is all about. I hope that maybe Miracle will come soon. THIS IS A MUST SEE!!!!
