Seann William Scott delivers career-best work as Doug Glatt, a bar bouncer who finds sudden fame as a hockey enforcer. He’s basically the guy the coach sends out to beat the crap out of an opponent when the team has been wronged—no real hockey skills necessary. Based on a true story and written by Jay Baruchel, the movie is funny from start to finish. Liev Schreiber is also good as Ross Rhea, another hockey enforcer who is on the brink of retirement. Make sure to stay for the credits, where you’ll get to see the player Glatt is based upon kicking some real ass. Eugene Levy, Scott’s American Pie partner in crime, appears as his dad this time.
