Unfortunately there is little comedies dealing hockey (except Tooth Fairy), and from this observation Jay Baruchel has said we should address this problem, and what better than to adapt the story Doug Smith, unlikely and leaving a lot of doors open to a barrage of gags. Even if we use an athlete, as an actor accustomed to take such a role, especially one with a head of andouille, and this is obviously Seann William Scott was chosen, it having been captain of Lacrosse team in American Pie and tennis player in offside.
Particularly silly, hence the title of the film, our character does not fit into a family of Jewish intellectuals, and aside from a job as a bouncer, nothing suits him, and it was by chance he will find himself embroiled in a hockey team. He can not slide, but no matter, all that is asked to use his unique talent, breaking mouths like nobody else, that in order to defend the attackers, and of course, win the games. A legend was born, one of the worst hockey player, but also the best hitter ever experienced this sport. It’s fun, it’s been pretty good laugh, knocking it as it is not allowed and the multitude of battles will be a good opportunity to impose some replays all the more pleasurable than the other to provide us with the Rocky orgasms while we baffre of popcorn .
In short, Goon is a good little comedy, honoring the legend and to the sport . The frame has the good taste to renew itself and not be limited to an orgy of violence, leaving a rather nice romance between our hero and a young woman overly complicated, which brings a touch of sweetness in a world of raw, proving that the most stupid of hitters he also has a heart. The cast is great , because in addition to Scott who broke out mixing play Forrest Gump / Happy Gilmore, the supporting cast are all tasty, it is the beautiful Alison Pill (the drummer for rock band Scott Pilgrim ), the manic Baruchel who continually makes the con, or the nemesis, camped by Liev Schreiber as always excellent and devilishly fun. Some do not louperont notice the presence of Eugene Levy , inescapable troublemaker known as the father of Jim in American Pie. To conclude, if the mixture hockey beats down nice and romances that do not take too much space you like, this film will most likely make you spend some quality time rich in gags and tender moments . If all this is not your cup of coffee, you will have little enough to gloat, and its few passages a little soft and not always inspired other gags are there to finish you off . Special mention for Seann William Scott, again at the top, and always has a chance to find roles that fit him, unless it is he who has a real talent to adapt to them, the choice is yours.
