I watched this movie for the first time tonight and suggest every Sabre fan watch itů It reminded me of Rob Ray... It's an awesome movie based on a real life biography...

I suggested earlier that John Scott looks just like Liev Schrieber who happens to play one of the goons in that movie, so funny. He looks just like him.

There were many AHL/NHL player knockoff names but the one that caught my attention was Reah, the supreme enforcer in the movie..... lol, ya think it was a tribute to the best in Sabre history, Rob Ray?

I think they did that on purpose. Rob Ray/Ross Reah.

Yes you are. Further more if you were my child I'd love you considerably less after that statement. Plus Dougie took one in the face.

Rumor has it they are going to make a Goon 2. Jay Baruchel, who played his friend , co wrote the movie. He's a big Canadiens fan but it was an awesome movie regardless.

I liked it though though it was a bit gory.

Not bad for a cheap movie. Weird seeing Stifler in a different role (Sean William Scott)

Speaking of Sabres players, anyone get a Derek Roy vibe from the French player in this movie?

Clock and I randomly watched this a few months back and thoroughly enjoyed it.

IMO, this was the one and only time I appreciated SWS as an actor. He plays goon very well.

Maybe Connolly too. Afraid after many concussions? Tinman all the way.

I've had it queued up for a while, but we watched it today and laughed a bit. Good call!

Agreed. Never liked Scott but he nailed his role. Even aside from Scott, and for the type of movie it is, the acting is great all around. There wasn't a poorly played character in it.


I personally liked the movie a lot but could see why some wouldn't. I recommend it to anyone who likes sports in general

Ha! Coaxed my wife into watching "Goon" the other night on our hotel TV. She absolutely loved it! Good flick.

It was absolutely ridiculous, and therefore funny and entertaining.

I thought it had funny parts, but ultimately it would have been better if SWS hadn't played Doug as such a mongoloid imbecile. It's possible to be a tough guy and not be a complete moron at the same time.

John Scott? He doesn't even look the most like Liev Schreiber on his own team (that would be Cody Hodgson).

HA. Never noticed that.


But if John Scott grew Schrieber's stache in that movie, he would be the spitting image
