Goon Movie Review: Hockey Hilarity with a Huge Heart

by at .

Goon is a triumph on a multitude of levels. The Jay Baruchel, co-writer and star, love letter to hockey’s enforcers is hilarious, heartfelt and shows why the game is so adored by so many millions. The film stars Seann William Scott (soon to be seen in April 6’s American Reunion) as a bar bouncer, whose family lets their disappointment with his professional prospects be known at every turn. Fate intervenes when, at a hockey game with his best pal (Baruchel), a player climbs into the stands to fight a patron. Scott’s Doug steps in and beats the player to a pulp. The local team’s coach sees something and gives the guy a chance to replicate what he did in the stands on the ice. The only problem: He's not such a great skater. Thus we have our first moments of hilarity!
