(mbc.net) An outrageously funny sport comedy revolves around Doug “The Thug” Glatt (Seann William Scott) a bouncer at some lousy bar who has had enough of his job, feeling unaccomplished among his intellectual well-established family. He is obsessed with hokey and idolizes such hokey goons as his hero, Ross Rhea. One night a chance altercation with such a goon, ends with Doug the clear winner, attracting the attention of the Halifax Highlander’s coach, who offers him a spot on the team. However, Doug has no prior hokey experience and is sporting his old brother’s Ice figure skating old skates, attracting much ridicule and unwanted attention from his teammates. But very quickly he manages to prove him self, as the guy you don’t want to cornered with on an ice hokey rink.
A must watch for all hokey and comedy fans alike, an outrageous comedy like you seldom see. Easily the best performance, and a career revival for its leader Seann William Scott; Not to be missed, or messed with!
