Sometimes Doug Benson likes to interrupt movies — and then there are times when he just wants to share a favorite with you “as is.” Some of you may remember his love of the under-rated Canadian sports comedy Goon, starring Seann William Scott as sweet dunderhead who lucks into hockey stardom through his brawling prowess. The film fits in nicely between underdog classics like Slap Shot, The Longest Yard and The Bad News Bears.
Doug sez: “I’m a big fan of pretty much every movie ever made about hockey or ice skating, don’t ask me why. I love Slap Shot, Miracle, The Cutting Edge, Ice Castles — even Blades of Glory. After finally getting around to watching Goon, I dare say I liked it better than all of those others.” Now, word has gotten around, and we get a treat… a chance for Doug and us to see the new sequel before anyone else!
