Favorite Hockey Movie?
« on: November 09, 2009, 08:13:23 AM »
What's your favorite hockey movie?  I was just gonna put Slapshot for all 4 options, but I figured I would at least pretend like the other films have a chance.

If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, challenge them to a fight. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, air their dirty laundry. If anyone forces you to go a mile, berate him continually. Give to those deemed worthy (if they pass a drug test), and turn not away from billionaires in need of tax breaks. This is [not] the Gospel.

Miracle, mainly because it is (or at least pretends to be) based upon an historical story. And the story of the 1980 Olympic team is incredible.

I want to say Miracle but really it's Slapshot. ;)

"Old time hockey!" has become a sort of catchphrase for my husband and me - it's his favorite hockey movie too.
