Often raucously funny and subversive, Slap Shot is one of the few sports movies that is openly contemptuous of its sport, or at least the modern state of it.

[VIDEO ESSAY] "Slap Shot" is a sports movie that revels in details of milieu, plot and character. Smokestacks billow white plumes from a perpetually overcast industrial skyline. Everything is old and weather beaten. Every victory is tainted.

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.

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