Crude hockey comedy offers a raucous take on the familiar rags-to-riches story

While it’s hardly the next Slap Shot, there’s still plenty of fun to be had with this crass comedy about a good-natured, but dim-witted oaf (Seann William Scott) whose brawling skills land him a spot as an ‘enforcer’ on an ice hockey team.

The Blu-ray platter delivers a sharp AVC 1.78:1 1080p encode and spry DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, although the latter sometimes buries the dialogue when the on-screen action gets a little too hectic. Curiously, the US disc’s chat-track and interactive Power Play Mode aren’t present, but all 45 minutes of video material from the latter are present in the extras menu. Also included are six deleted scenes, an outtakes/blooper reel, cast interviews, audition footage, a HD Net promo featurette and virtual trading cards.
