Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Conveys some of the thrill and ferocity of ice hockey while skillfully folding together multiple personal dramas.
Rotten: A hybrid of sports movies and TV sitcoms with little originality and few surprises or memorably rough edges.
Rotten: There is no denying Kelley's ability to write a funny one-liner or pen a poignant speech, but this frustrating film has the potential to be much more than it is, especially with the collection of able actors on hand.
Rotten: Kelley is obviously aware that to make the move from TV to films he must fill his scripts with greater depth and density.
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.
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!!!!
