Seann William Scott and Liev Schrieber duke it out in first Goon trailer

09.13.2011

Ready to see the hockey film that Seann William Scott passed over Kevin Smith's hockey film for? That would be GOON, which has a similar plot to HIT SOMEBODY as it follows a young bruiser in the NHL whose only real job is to mess people up.

Scott is good at busting players left and right, but meets his match when he's put up against a legendary enforcer played by a mustachioed Liev Schrieber. Blood and teeth fly everywhere, and there's quite a lot crammed into a mere minute here.

Check it out below, and see if this is your type of sports comedy or not.

I couldn't discern a single joke out of this shit-looking trailer. For the first half of it, I thought this was supposed to be entirely serious. Maybe it's because I don't watch hockey (or any sports really), so I am just not understanding the jokes. If that is the case, then the movie is failing, as it should be accessible to others as well. Either way, I was not impressed.

Great movie, whether you love hockey or not

I saw this at the TIFF premiere this past Saturday and the entire audience seemed to absolutely love it, laughing and cheering beginning to end. If Slap Shot is the the hockey movie to compare all hockey movies to (or specifically, hockey comedies), then it finally has some well-deserved company.

Scott was excellent in probably his most 'un-Stiffler-like' role that I can recall, playing more of a dim-witted, mild-mannered nice guy...until he's called in to protect and defend his teammates

Scott was excellent in probably his most 'un-Stiffler-like' role that I can recall, playing more of a dim-witted, mild-mannered nice guy...until he's called in to protect and defend his teammates by unleashing his 'Superman' like strength to smash his opponents. He is the new kid and the only one able to match the menacing Schreiber, who looks like he could be one tough son-of-a-bitch in real life, especially with that 'stache.

Baruchel was hilarious as his foul-mouthed sidekick, as was the entire cast as they certainly did not hold back on the vulgarities (the crazy Russian teammates had a particularly great moment with the goalie's 'mom'). That said, I don't think this trailer does the film much justice with the type of comedy it is or with the story, so hopefully they release a red-band, soon.

One would assume a movie about 'hockey goons' is going to get some talk around town considering the recent tragedies in the NHL with their 'enforcers'. The director inevitably bought this up before the film started and respectfully acknowledged them and what other enforcers go through, and having Doug Smith come up on stage afterwards - the minor league enforcer the movie is based on - was also a touching moment (make sure to stay for the credits for more of him).

Scott's and Schreiber's 'goons' are 2 completely different characters with the same job - fighting, and I think the ying/yang take on that job that they represent in the film shows a lot more understanding of what tough guys like Smith, Laraque, Belak and others go through than you'd imagine a comedy like this would.

This was just a really funny and entertaining movie all around and I'm thrilled that we finally have another great hockey movie out there after all these years. If the opening night was any indication, it should hopefully do rather decently in theatres (if they market it right, obviously).


Extra Tidbit: 'Coach' Coates was awesome, as he is in any role. And he's right..."This is not F&@#!%G baseball!"

I'm in. Reminds me a little bit of "Slap Shot" (one of my favorites) except told from the goon's perspective.

They have the L.A. Kings around the corner and couldn't study how hockey player fight... 1 game it would have taken 1 GAME! They should have learned from Youngblood, GAH! and since were bitching about hockey, why the hell did the Mighty Ducks play Iceland in the finals?

what the fuck are you talking about? The movie was mainly filmed in Winnipeg and other places in Canada and the fights look fantastic and realistic, of course with a little extra punch but that's all for the better.

Allison Pill

She tends to take roles that don't really give justice to how hot she is, so I'm glad to see she's finally in an eye candy character. She deserves it! As for the rest of the film- sign me up! I'm fine with this over Kevin Smith's fick, because honestly it was gonna be a Kevin Smith film centered around hockey, not a hockey film, which is what Goon is. Not to mention the kick ass presence of Liev Schreiber and Kim Coates, as opposed to a bunch of Smith regulars...

I would have never considered her ugly, but damn, Allison Pill looked impressive.

A lot of actors I like. SWS, Liev, Coates, Jay, Levy. I'm definitely interested. It looks like it could be really fun and a good successor to Slap Shot. I hope SWS's Canadian accent sounds better than it did for the brief time here.
