Goon! Opens Today
Goon opens everywhere today but I got a chance to go to the premiere earlier this week. Long story short: I loved it. Sports movies are tough to do. And a funny sports movie...well lets just say Montrealer Jay Baruchel and Co. stepped up to the challenge and hit it out of the park. (I am going to try and get in as many sports cliches as possible in this post...) Hockey fans will appreciate the peek into their world that is crass, funny, heartwarming and sometimes not all that pretty. Everyone else with a sense of humor will laugh at a film that manages to weave in an adorable love story and delve into the darker side of the toughest job in pro-sports.
