Slap Shot may have done a lot of fast skating and some solid body checking, but in the last period it makes a final costly slip -- and misses its goal.

There are still some nice touches of absurdist satirical wit hanging out along the sidelines, given extra bite by Dede Allen's superbly pacy editing.

Slap Shot has a kind of vitality to it that overwhelms most of the questions relating to consistency of character and point of view.

Half the time Hill invites the audience to get off on the mayhem, the other half of the time he decries it.
