A weak sports movie. It starts off really slow. The end game had my attention, but the movie doesn't jell as a whole. It was also much more vulgar than anticipated and desired. (First and only viewing - 8/6/2015)
We watch this movie every Christmas kind of our own holiday tradition. I usually end up watching Mystery at least three times a year total. Fun and full of character drama. A must see, but it is certainly not a family film.
I 'usually' trust RT when we rent movies on the Apple TV. You were WAY off on this one. It was very good, real, well, shot, offbeat but compelling, believable story. I rate it higher than Slap Shot which until today i thought was the best hockey movie ever made. Don't rate it for how 'real' the hockey looks rate it for how you feel after watching it.

Feels more made-for-TV than Hollywood, and it's a simple story with unremarkable script, but it stands up over time -- the environment, the men, their wives, and the overall view of life that sucks you into the story and makes you wish it were true.
