Goon

Very funny Ice Hockey Comedy!

Seann William Scott stars in this hilarious Ice Hockey Comedy. The story is about Doug Glatt, a bouncer with no career whatsoever. Doug has a natural ability for beating the crap out of somebody and for this he is selected to join the local Ice Hockey team. He soon climbs up the ranks to get selected to save a failing National League Hockey team.

Aside from The Mighty Ducks and Tooth Fairy I haven’t seen any Ice Hockey films, but I was pleasantly surprised. Goon mocks the stigma of violence in Ice Hockey to a very funny level. Seann William Scott plays the dumb Doug Glatt and this role suits him perfectly. Similar to his roles in American Pie (Stiffmeister) and Dude Where’s My Car (Chester) Seann is acting in his comfort zone. The Movie is well-scripted and works on different levels. It is amusing, tells a message and is simple entertainment. No brain teasers, just simple and direct fun.

I especially loved several one-liners:

 

Do you fart cinnamon?

You make me wanna stop sleeping around with other guys!

I am a slut… I sleep around with other guys, doesn’t this bother you? – No, I have a huge crush on you.

You have been touched by the fist of god!

 

Lots of funny side characters, similar type of sport comedy as Semi-Pro and easy to watch. Highly recommended!
