Can I get a Canadian opinion
on the movie, Goon. Not a die hard hockey fan, but I loved it. It's been on Showtime a lot lately and every time it's on I can't keep from watching it. To me it seems like it could be a fairly authentic portrayal (realizing it's a Hollywood comedy), but you, Canadians, may see it as contrived...

In this case the movie is actually much better than the trailer.

I didn't think it got the greatest reviews, but I just checked Rotten Tomatoes and it has an 83, which is damn good.

Just wondering how it was perceived in Canada...

Re: Can I get a Canadian opinion
OP, I haven't seen Goon so I can't comment directly on the movie. BUT....what I can tell you is that in order to understand Canadians you need to watch "Slapshot" which is revered north of the 49th. We love us some hockey, No doot aboot it.
Quoting Punk A$$ets: "His cheese has slid off his cracker and the threshold between genius and nuts has indeed been compromised."

“When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how much he'd learned in seven years.”- Mark Twain

Re: Can I get a Canadian opinion
Goon is more Canadien than Slap Shot.

Slap Shot is the story of a American league with American player.

Goon is about a awesome American player who is Jew haha! with a great hearth and a strong fist ;) who get into the recruit team of a NHL Canadian team to protect a French Canadien who is good with the puck.


My Own Review:

Slap Shot is cheap, very vulgar that's make him funny. - 6/10

Goon is very funny too and it about leadership that can change a whole team , 1 men stand and the other will follow ;) - 7/10

An authentic portrayal of what? Hockey? No. Of Stompin Tom? Okay. Canadians, you see, have never gotten over the Russians telling us that Hockey is more than a violent football kind of sport. It can actually be ballet and art.......

Re: Can I get a Canadian opinion
Havent watched slaphot in twenty years but i remember it being way funnier than Goon.Goon seemed to be more of a drama than a comedy/action movie which i like.

Nothing here If you want to see something good about hockey. You should see The movies "The Boys" made in Quebec. [link to www.imdb.com]
