About the Movie

This irreverent and hilarious look into the world of professional sports has Paul Newman as the coach of the Chiefs, a struggling minor-league hockey team. To build up attendance at their games, management signs up the Hanson Brothers, three hard-charging players whose job is to demolish the opposition. Slap Shot's outrageous comedy, hard-hitting action, memorable lines and unforgettable characters have made this classic one of the all-time best sports movies ever!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Slap Shot has a kind of vitality to it that overwhelms most of the questions relating to consistency of character and point of view. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Slap Shot may have done a lot of fast skating and some solid body checking, but in the last period it makes a final costly slip -- and misses its goal. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: An unsually abrasive sporting drama from director Hill. – Film4, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: There are still some nice touches of absurdist satirical wit hanging out along the sidelines, given extra bite by Dede Allen's superbly pacy editing. – Geoff Andrew, Time Out, Jun 24, 2010

Now you young bucks will know who the real Hanson Brothers are

This movie is a classic. Spidey99 I gather must have been born in 99 and doesnt understand the significance of this movie.

Best Sports Movie ever! EVER!

Simply put, this movie is a CLASSIC. Every hockey player knows this movie by heart and quotes it on a daily basis. There is no political correctness in this one, so if you are one of those uptight tools, I suggest you go elsewhere for some laughs. Who owns the Chiefs?

One of the all-time greats

A precursor to great sports comedies like Major League and much more quotable. Paul Newman's awesome portrayal of Reg Dunlap is very similar to the minor-leaguer the movie is widely credited to emmulate. HANRAHAN! It's 30 years old, but watchable every second of the day. Hey Walt, what are you doing? Makin' it look mean!
