    WHACK! that’s to the previous one who posted. Saw Goon between 2 flights last sunday and although the Eastern Maritime Hockey League ain’t the Federal League… I found the flick all right with additional words I really could understand XD Bienvenue à la maison = Welcome home. Seann William Scott can act, only wished he’d skate a little faster and Liev Schreiber has the aging goon character perfectly, as he’s too old for that shit anymore. Anyways it’s a good flick to watch, and those who disagree can whack me back XD I’ll try to avoid them.

    This movie was meant for simple minded idiots. If you liked it then obviously you know why.

  3. Samantha says:

    One of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. Had everything a great film needed. Definitely a favourite. Can’t wait to get it

  4. JPrice says:

    I live in NY but had a chance to see it at a theater while in Toronto. It is a tribute to hockey tough guys and a must see for fans of old time hockey. Its the modern day Slapshot. I enjoyed it!

  5. Talon says:

    Great movie. Definitely a must-see for any hockey fan. Ranks up there with Mighty Ducks, Mystery Alaska, Youngblood and the king of the hockey movies, Slapshot, in my opinion.

  6. Joe says:

    This movie is awesome! It has everything – a great somewhat true story, kick-ass music, some romance, plenty of action, and it’s hilarious. The language is pretty rough but all-in-all one of the best movies I’ve seen lately.

  7. Doug Glatt says:

    The only reason i’m not knocking out Rynne’s teeth is because he is on my team

  8. Mike b. says:

    This movie f*&king ruled!!! “Goon” should have been the sequel to “Slapshot”. Not one thing sucks about this film.

  9. glatt says:

    ryne is a bitch, this movie was hard core bad ass

  10. Amber says:

    This movie is hilarious, exciting, and completely satisfying! The previous reviewer, “Ryne”, is clearly an idiot.

  11. Ryne says:

    Maybe the worst sports movie since CaddyShack 2. What a joke. Don’t spend a Dime on this piece of trash.

  12. myke says:
