I remember when I first saw this movie back in the early 90′s. It was originally released in 1986 but I have never been a hockey fan so it really didn’t appeal to me. That was until I saw some scenes where a young hockey hopeful (Rob Lowe) and his teammates Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves engage in locker room antics, such as hazings and ball shaving. The memorable scene is where Rob meets his love interest (The Coaches Daughter) in only what looks to be a Bike Jockstrap!
Essentially the plot boils down to a young Rob Lowe’s on ice and off ice antics, all while trying to impress talent scouts looking for the new big Canadian hockey star.
It is a sports movie. If you like sports movies you might like this retro classic. If sports are not your thing you can always fast forward to the naughty bits.
