Aro Recommended Slap Shot


USA 1977, 118 minutes
Dir. George Roy Hill
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Action/Adventure, Drama

Topics: Sport.


Aroview: Violent ice-hockey scenes jostle with profane humour in this ironic sports-flick based around a failing minor-league team, coached by mischievous battle-scarred Paul Newman. Resorting to vicious dirty-play succeeds in raising the team’s spirits and fortunes, an ‘unsporting’ message which at the time appalled some of Newman’s traditional fans.
