La preuve qu'il est encore possible de produire de belles choses lorsque la passion est au rendez-vous, même si cela signifie parfois travailler avec des matériaux usés...

With so many characters and plotlines, it seems that TV king Kelley mistook this big-screen assignment for another network pilot.

...completely inoffensive -- if you don't mind old ladies and little children saying shockingly rude things. But it's no Slap Shot, if that's what you wanted to know.

O roteiro cria uma série de subtramas que jamais se tornam relevantes e - o que é pior - mergulham no mais puro clichê.

While sports may well be the toy department of life, hanging out there is often what creates and sustains community.

The only thing that saves it from being total trash is the skill of the lead actors, who make the best out of nothing.

It contains nothing more than weather and a set of one-dimensional cut-outs.

Mystery, Alaska is sweet, pleasant, low-key, inoffensive and unnecessary.

Roach has to deal with some pure corn at the end, but he pulls it off and guides the actors to and through far better moments.

Everyone loves a good David vs. Goliath story, but there's a point where reality kicks in.

It's a sort of adult The Mighty Ducks that stretches and strains in the direction of The Last Picture Show, but falls flat on the ice.

For as cold as it gets up north, these people sure make a warm picture.

The hockey game itself is nothing special, with neither the kinetic excitement nor the dramatic tension needed to bring the scenes to life.
