By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Easily the greatest hockey film ever made, even though the competition hasn't really been that fierce. Paul Newman stars as the coach/player for a second-rate team who can't win and can't even get arrested until they hire three twin brothers with coke-bottle glasses named the Hansons. These three violent goons begin beating other players to a pulp in every game, not only drawing attention to the team, but beginning a winning streak. Sloppy, far too long at 122 minutes, irreverent and very funny.
