Use the name of a succsessful comedy, and create part two usually equals an awful movie. Cast: , , , , , , , Director: Genres: Production Co: Universal Studios Inc. It was a hilarious look at the seedier side of minor pro Ice Hockey. The whole idea of the first film was to have fun and bring the hockey attitude out and it did that very well. Take the horrible coach characters. The film rests on the rather inadequate shoulders of Stephen Baldwin, who, in addition to having gone somewhat to seed in the last few years, seems unable to portray any emotional depth. Better yet, it's fun for the whole family, so you can share this film with your children.
A good pickup for the true hockey fan and the novice alike. This movie is something I could watch a couple times without getting tired of it. Yes, Canadian, Americans couldn't tell the difference between hockey and disco dancing with all those goofy red and blue streaks all over the place on Fox. But I had four of my wisdom teeth removed the weekend I rented this and it kept me occupied long enough to forget about the big open wounds in my gums, so really, give this film a chance. They all looked a little long in the tooth for that rugged sport.
This is one far stretch from the free wheeling original Slapshot film. The first one was a cult classic hit for sport movies. Et last but not least, le nouvel entraîneur est un entraîneur. The film was made by people who don't know anything about hockey. That youthful exuberance was gone.
And outside of them, the only reason to make this a sequel is to piggyback on the success of the original. When was this in the theater if at all? Gary Busey is fair and Stephen Baldwin is poor at best. F- Avoid like the plauge! Next to the first and Young blood this movie is one of the best hockey movies ever. But the team's approach is threatened when the club is bought by executive Richmond Claremont Gary Busey , who pressures them to throw games and tone down their tempers in exchange for money. The Chiefs are sold to Richmond Clairmont G. This one must be thee old- straight to video cat. After the fight, Claremont bribes a financially struggling Sean to change the team's attitude about losing games on purpose, and then he can leave on his own terms.
It made for a watchable plot. As in the first one, there are a lot of parts that could have been cut. The figure skating guy is unbelievable as a coach and totally unfunny as a queer. Abstract: Minor league hockey team Charlestown Chiefs are still languishing in West Virginia. Les spectateurs ont donné une note de trois sur cinq avec 1,977 votes. They're the only ones that are back though. Watching the idea I thought it was as bad as the Recon unit always losing in Heartbreak Ridge.
Finally back to their old ways, the Chiefs use their physical brutality and beat the IceBreakers on a last-second goal by Sean. Over the years, people's fondness for the original has exaggerated the comedic aspect of the movie into more than it really was. Don't talk to me about Baldwin's performance, either. The one who takes it worse is David Paetkau who is hoping to get picked up by a National Hockey League franchise. No visible wear, and all facets of the item are flawless and intact. This is a bad thing. You can laugh, if you can just get over the fact that this film is a sequel.
Since I am an Ice Hockey Referee part time, I joke that Slap Shot is mandatory viewing for all referees. They could have written something hilariously funny into the second one about the Hanson Brothers going home to Minnesota. Everyone here knows it and goes through the motions. Baldwin and the rest of this cast are terrible. Clairmont, a businessman, signs power of attorney to his right hand man. Description: 1 videodisc 103 min.
The new coach, Sean Linden Stephen Baldwin , leads the rambunctious squad -- which includes the famed Hanson brothers -- through their victories with little concern for their often violent antics. The script for Slap Shot 2-Breaking the Ice should have been thoroughly reviewed over and over with a fine-tooth comb before they started filming. This is likely why this movie sucked so hard. If you love hockey, it may be worth a look. If there was going to be a sequel it should of been done right after the original. Cameos from real hockey players don't make a lick of difference when the story is this horrible. Note to readers: Steve Carlson and Jeff Carlson were born and raised in Virginia, Minnesota.
