      Audience Member On one hand this is a truly awful movie, on the other hand it's hilariously fun, but still terrible. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member This was hysterical. Funny, well-acted, just a great way to kill some time. I really enjoyed it. Lyrics like 'You're making a mistake, his tongue and saliva I did forsake' ... are *funny*. That's humorous! Geesh. Even hockey can be poked fun of. I can believe, however, that the hockey games are bogus -- I know nothing of hockey but do about music and can attest that the music-playing scenes were ridiculous, stands to reason the hockey was too. But it's OK, everything doesn't have to be realistic. This is a musical, for crying out loud: it *is* ludicrous; that's the point. eh? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Fun Canadian tale about hockey. The songs are not very good or memorable, but it works for what it is, and the acting pretty much is the same, although it could have used less language to make it more family friendly. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is awful. It quickly becomes obvious that whoever made this movie is not knowledgeable on hockey or musicals. The more you see hockey being played, the more they make errors, anybody who loves hockey will be frustrated by the rules being wrong in this movie. The acting in this movie is atrocious most of the time, which can probably be credited to an awful script, but there is no actor in the movie experienced enough to save a bad script. The songs are truly the worst part of this movie. The melodies are non existent most of the time and the poor actors are stuck trying to find a note to hit, the lyrics are even worse. It seems as though the lyricist has the depth of a 12 year old with a thesaurus. overall an atrocious film Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member The musical interludes felt way too fored. Even for a musical. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Gonna start off by saying I'm Canadian and I'm totally biased. In actuality though it wasn't a terrible movie, if you like some grade A Canadian cheese then you'll love this film. The singing at times isn't the greatest but to be honest you won't really care because the lyrics are adorably quirky; as well the dancing in hockey garb is quite amusing. The fact that Olivia Newton-John is a crazy mother and Nelly Furtado plays a crazed hockey fan are just the icing on the cake for this movie. Also gotta love me some George Stroumboulopoulos! Overall I'd say if your Canadian you will probably find this movie amusing. If you're not but you have a good sense of humor and you like movies that aren't Hollywood grade then you might find this enjoyable. I will say that if you're not Canadian you might have trouble understanding the satire. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Stephen Cole Globe and Mail A 1930s-style, boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl songfest. With sticks, skates and a puck. Rated: 3/4 Oct 22, 2010 Full Review NOW Toronto Rated: 3/5 Apr 21, 2011 Full Review Jim Slotek Jam! Movies This over-the-top, deliberately campy take on the national sport, featuring Olivia Newton-John as a hockey mom, is exactly what it sets out to be, for better or worse.
