Slap Shot

By Tom Keogh

Paul Newman and his Butch Cassidy director, George Roy Hill, made a very original comedy in this 1977 story of an over-the-hill player/coach (Newman) for a lousy hockey team who gets results when he teaches his players to get dirty. One of the most hilariously profane movies ever to come out of Hollywood, this is the kind of film that makes its own rules as it goes along. Newman is very good, and while Hill goes for the gusto in terms of capturing the violence of this world, his instinct for comedy has never been sharper. Great support from Strother Martin, Paul Dooley, and the rest.

"Slap Shot is without a doubt one of the most profane films starring a major actor. And it was written by Nancy Dowd - a woman!! I've read that Paul Newman counts this as one of his favorite movies he's made. Who can forget The Hanson Brothers??!! These Brothers bring back "Old time hockey", fast , furious and rough. If you like Newman and only know him from Butch Cassidy or The Sting, You gotta see him in Slap Shot!!"
