The year's best comedy earns a great Blu-Ray release
6 June 2012
Excerpt: I saw 'Goon' in theaters when it was released strictly in Canada. I absolutely loved the film because it never took itself too seriously and was made with great passion and appreciation for the game of hockey. As far as a sports comedy is concerned, it is hands down my favourite of them all. Everything works, the characters are well drawn and the build up to the inevitable showdown makes it that much better.
Excerpt: Goon is a worthy enough Sports/Comedy movie to put it up their with some of the greats, It's a shame this didn't get a wide release, I'm happy critics took well to this movie. I haven't read to much negative reviews on it. I love Hockey movies and wish their were more, maybe one day the sport will get the respect it deserves in the movies and on TV. Anyways Goon is about a bouncer named Doug Glatt (Sean William Scott).
Conclusion: I like Sean scott and I heard it was a comedy about ice hockey and fights on the ice, well It didn't.t disappoint some very funny bits, trust me with a broken ribs I.m now in pain. But at the same time it's violent we're I had to turn away, it's a rough game ice hockey and this game certainly isn.t for the faint hearted.
Conclusion: A nobody finds his calling by sheer luck and takes it to the highest level he can. When a 20 something Doug Glatt is left wondering his calling, by freak chance he realises there is one thing he's good at, and that's fighting. He takes up the role of a hockey enforcer, a goon who does whatever his coach tells him. If you're a fan of hockey, you'll love this movie, this movie is meant for die hard hockey fans.
Conclusion: Mighty Ducks,cover your eyes! Teeth and swears fly in this adult sports com where a naive numbskull, crap at ice hockey but good with his fists, is enlisted as a team enforcer to beat the crap out of the opposition........... and that's about it really. Seann William Scott is sweet and beefy as nice but dim knuckle head Doug The Thug. while Jay Baruchel (who co wrote with Superbad/Pineapple Express scribe Evan Goldberg) is exuberantly foul mouthed as his yappy mate.
