Not only was this movie really funny and extremely entertaining, but they did a great job of showing a real side of hockey. Great casting - you couldn't find a better Goon. So glad I had a chance to see this in theaters!

I see a new generation of hockey players being inspired into the sport through this movie.

Ordered this movie on Time Warner's "before theaters" last month, and it was pretty hilarious.

I can't vouch for the accuracy of the hockey scenes, but the story is a mix of blood, violence, humor, raunchiness, sweetness, family values and blood (yes I need to say it twice) that oddly come together in almost perfect harmony. The movie hangs on Seann William Scott, who is in almost every scene, and he is very good. His portrayal of a simple guy just trying to succeed in life and love has a Rocky-like quality to it. The music also deserves mention because it lends an operatic, over the top air to several key scenes. No Oscars here, just a lot more fun than expected.

It is a funny movie that mixes the comedy with action very well. Sean does a great job as playing a loveable simple minded guy who just happens to be great at beating the crap out of people. its a fun movie and i would of given it a must go but the raunchy language(over 200 f bombs)distracts and takes away from the movie. but still worth seeing.
