    I'm always up for a hockey movie despite not being a sports fan, and Goon surprised me with its earnestness, relating to both the character and the portrayal of hockey. The teams may be inventions, and the names may have been changed, but Goon is based on the life story of a real person, and makes a fine tribute to a position that gets little recognition despite serving a role that helped make hockey as popular as it is, whether can defend the game's violence or not. Writer/co-star Jay Baruchel and director Michael Dowse have made a very Canadian movie - and one mostly taking place in the Atlantic Provinces, for which I am especially grateful - with our accents, our concerns, our towns, and our music, packaged for a wider audience thanks to stars Seann Michael Scott (his best film ever?) and Liev Schreiber. Sweet in spite of the violence, it's a fun (and funny!) little film. 8 years 8 months ago

    This was the first time I saw Sean William Scott in a film where I didn't see him as "Stifler" from American Pie, which is a good thing. He's growing as an actor. I think he's really coming into his own now. And I love this movie... it's funny, it's got heart... I think I've seen it about five or six times now. Love it. 11 years 5 months ago
