DVD/Blu-ray: Goon (15)


Click to follow

Seann William Scott, most memorable for his offensive Stifler in American Pie, bulks out and plays it straight for this patchy sports comedy.

He plays Doug, a dim but loyal hardnut who is enrolled into a local ice hockey squad simply for his fighting skills. He is soon picked up by a bigger team to protect their messed-up star player. Goon appears confused about whether it's supposed to be heartwarming and sincere or crude and gross. Scott's good, though.
