Crass, crude, violent comedy involving minor-league hockey. Paul Newman plays the coach/player of crappy team in Charlestown who don't win often and are going to be disbanded - and he essentially invents a potential "move" to Florida to inspire his team to win. Unforgettable characters and villains, and the vulgarity is present in just about every scene. Very quotable lines with exceptional dialogue for on early '80s comedy, and it is well acted throughout. The addition of the Hansons as total goons lead to some hilarious moments. It's ironic that the subject matter deals with franchises moving/folding, which has been a huge issue with major sports teams over the past 30 years. One of the best sports movies as well as one of the best comedies ever.
