Pretty dated

For the life of me, I have no idea why Slap Shot is a famous movie. It's so incredibly dated! I'm really sorry, Paul Newman, but you've made so many other better movies; if I write one bad review, I hope you'll understand.

Newman plays a hockey player and coach in this utterly 70s sports movie that seems to be both spoofing itself and taking itself entirely too seriously. The players and fans get into brawls during games, in order to gain attention and popularity. It's really silly. Maybe forty years ago, it was supposed to be funny, but it isn't anymore. And since it's also a pretty lousy sports movie, I can't really think of any reason to recommend it, even to Paul Newman fans. If you want to watch a Paul Newman sports movie, try Somebody Up There Likes Me instead.

I'm gonna flash' em, Joe!

This is one of the best comedies you will ever see. I'm only writing this in case anybody who hasn't seen this movie is reading reviews, because I want to tell you that you're a fool for having missed this until now. It's not just the best hockey movie ever, it's a classic 70's comedy, up there with Animal House and The Bad News Bears. Don't even debate it, just watch it.

It's So Stupid, It's Actually a Hoot

Like "Bull Durham," the sport takes second fiddle to a bunch of intrigue. It's about aging players, greedy owners, manipulation, on and on. Paul Newman decides he has to take action to make sure his team manages to draw. In the small city where they play, there is a mill. The people who work at the mill are the fans. The mill is going to close, which will render the place a ghost town. This moves into an anything-for-a-laugh hockey movie with some totally unforgettable characters. When the Carlson brothers show up and goon hockey starts, we are amazed at the way the whole game becomes nearly surreal. Don't take this seriously.
