The film is written by some pretty funny guys in Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg, and they insist it has a hard R rating. Goon will be one of the latest hockey flicks in the past few years, and given the most recent failures our expectations will be low. I never saw The Love Guru, and I'm told I'm very lucky for that, but I had a good laugh when I read some reviews of it.
Goon isn't the first movie to feature a hockey tough guy as the main character as you can't forget about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in The Tooth Fairy. I saw a bit of this movie on TMN, but it was so brutal I changed the channel faster than the Ottawa Senators change coaches.
Goon will be no Slapshot or Youngblood, but from the trailer alone, I'd probably see it. Will you?
