Review

Lucy Fife Donaldson says: "Written by Apatow-adjacent Jay Baruchel (asseen in Knocked Up) and Evan Goldberg (PineappleExpress, Superbad),this is an affectionate and violent insight into the life of an Ice Hockeyenforcer, the player used to protect his team and intimidate the other players.Sean William Scott is Doug, a nice but none-too-bright bouncer, the black sheepof a family of Jewish doctors, who finds his calling as an enforcer who iseventually hired to protect a star player who has been scared off by veteranenforcer, Ross ‘The Boss’ Rhea (Liev Schreiber). Neither knowing nothing abouthockey, nor being not much of a fan of seeing people hit each other in the faceshould put you off this movie. Sure, it’s pretty goofy, but it’s also a lot afun (the best hockey film since the great Slapshot?) with Scott and Schreiber proving to be good company."
