    It’s getting tons of press and air time here, but I hadn’t heard about the gay angle either.

    The reviews I’ve heard are generally positive, comparing it to (what else) “Slapshot”.

    And “The Artist” of course.

    Yep, that’s pretty much how it plays out in the film… His gay brother comes back later in the film and has the chance to return the favor to Seann William Scott’s character by standing up for him in front of their parents who disapprove of his choice of a career…

    Bonus points: seeing Marc-André Grondin sitting on a couch wearing just Ginch Gonch briefs 😛

    YES! it’s a great flick! funny and surprisingly touching!

    as for marc-andre grondin (who starred in the film C.R.A.Z.Y, which you should all see IMMEDIATELY if you’ve not yet seen it) is so dreamy it’s maddening.

    My brother’s friend’s cousin dated this girl who used to be a hair dresser, and one of her clients told her that he goes to a personal trainer who once overhead a guy at his gym who is a bartender at a West Hollywood gay bar tell someone that he once had sex with Sean William Scott.

    I have seen it, it’s available now on iTunes in the US, and was really surprised how funny and touching it was. You do not need to have any love of hockey at all to enjoy the film a great deal.

    money quotes …

    “Hey! My brother’s gay!” *punch*

    “Gay porn hard!”

    “No glory holes tonight!”

    “Stupid. Gay. Stupid. Gay.” (which isn’t at all insulting when in context, just laugh out loud funny)

    Plus there are plenty of hot guys 😉

    I don’t know if it’s still there, but it was listed as of a few days ago on the Movies On Demand channel, for anyone who has Time Warner Cable.

    Actor Jay Baruchel told Craig Ferguson last night that he wrote this movie. If you get the HDNet-Movies channel on your cable/satellite system, this movie is airing one night only March 28th as one of their free “Sneak Preview” offerings.

    The trailer looks real good. I hope the Canadians have a sense of humor. Making fun of hockey is like making fun of their religion. But it’s funny because it’s true, about the fighting.

    I’m pretty sure that you can stream this title on VUDU right now. The other movie, C.R.A.Z.Y., is available to stream through Netflix as well.

    Love love LOVE Sean William Scott. Gorgeous guy, obviously vulnerable (sports a broken heart tattoo above his crotch area and has been in rehab already), and incredibly funny. Husband material, in my opinion. I wish him all the best, and I can’t wait to see this film, and much more of him in the future!
