Goon (2011)

A misfit among his brainy family members, lovable bouncer Doug “The Thug” Glatt (Scott) has a righteous left hook. His fighting skills are so strong, in fact, that he unexpectedly lands a spot on a minor-league Canadian hockey team, where his role as “enforcer” has him dropping gloves with opposing players to put them “on ice.”

Michael Dowse’s brilliant comedy is big on character and bigger on heart, sure to appeal to both die-hard hockey fans and sports-phobic audiences alike.

Staff Pick:

"A movie this vulgar, violent and hilarious has absolutely no business being so sweet and heartwarming." —Mark
