Can a brainless family outcast lead a team of misfits to ice hockey glory?

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.

Seann William Scott is sweet and beefy as nice 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.

Lionising the pulverising, this is more fun than it has any right to be. The hockey technicalities may alienate, yet the demented, bone-crunching scraps, war-time team mentality and Whip-It style anarchy is addictive.

Rough, rude and raucous.

      Pineapple Express and Superbad were right up my street - and I reckon this will be just as good...

      I have to say I've lost faith in this film since I saw how many mentions of it they've blatantly paid for on Total film's website over the past couple of days. Was going to see it in the cinema, I'll now wait till it's on TV.

      I went to see this last night and didn't think I would like it, to tell the truth I took my girl to see it as it was my turn to choose the film and the last one she chose was Twilight so I thought I'd get her back! It was actually entertaining, Seann William Scott was funny and Liev Schreiber was hilarious! The review does it justice.

      If you like Superbad/Pineapple Express kinda comedy you'll be chuckling right through this. Reminded me of the old Wildcats/Major League style 80's comedies. Great fun.
