    This has got to be going straight to video. How can there possibly be any market for a sequel to a 30 year old cult film? I just don't understand how some movies get made. At least they got the original Hanson brothers back. I love the original, but I will never watch this.

    SLAP SHOT came out in 1977, HALLOWEEN came out in 1978 and it's got a sequal coming out. So what's wrong with a SLAP SHOT sequal?

    Maybe because Halloween has had five sequels in the interim.

    Yeah, I agree. It just reeks of pointless opportunism to release a Slap Shot 2 at this point.
    Oh well, at least they got some of the characters back from the first one.
    But who's idea was it to make Stephen Baldwin the leading man? I say you're just asking for sniggers when you do something like that! [​IMG]

    PSYCHO (1960) followed with PYSCHO 2 (1983).
    KING KONG (1976) followed with KING KONG LIVES (1986).
    EXCORSIT 2 (1977) followed with EXCORSIT 3(1990).
    GODFATHER 2 (1974) followed with GODFATHER 3 (1990).
    So it won't be the 1st time there has been a long time in between sequals.

    Considering the PC climate of today, there is no way that this will stack up to the original. Having said that, there is no way that I will miss this. It looks chessy but what the hell, it will still have some laughs I'm sure. The Hanson brothers, C'mon, it will be a good time.

    Being a huge fan of the first film (I grew up on it, which explains a lot about me [​IMG]), I was weary as could be as the trailer loaded up.
    Baldwin doesn't seem like the grizzled hockey type to me but I'll reserve judgement until the film comes out. The Hanson's are back, so there's a draw for me. I'm just looking for some laughs, and since my expectations are on the low side, I'll se what happens. The last shot of the trailer had me rolling so that's a good sign.
    For years, I always considered choices on who could play the new leader of the Chiefs. No one's going to be a Paul Newman, so it's wasted energy to try to emulate or top him, My money has been on Denis Leary for years.
    If they can't get a Slap Shot vehicle for him, somebody get him a hockey film. He'd be perfect for it, on and off the ice.

    Sure, there may be precedent for longtime sequels. But, that doesn't it's a good thing. None of these sequels are considered very good by anyone. Can you name an example of a long delayed sequel that was any good?
    The "Join the team" page says "Be the first to get the scoop on the DVD and Video release of Slap Shot 2." So, I think probably this is a straight to video release. That's another indication of its potential quality.
    The original Slap Shot is a great flick. Hopefully, this one will at least have a few laughs.

    No offense, but The Color of Money was a poor attempt at a sequel.

    "Sean Linden (Stephen Baldwin) is the veteran coach of the Charlestown Chiefs, a minor league hockey team that has seen better days. The team is sold to Dean Claremont (Gary Busey), an owner of a new league in Omaha, Nebraska. To make matters worse, the new league is not really a league - the pay is good, but they will be playing a "Harlem Globetrotters" type hockey with the Chiefs as the stooges always losing to the clean-cut, pretty boys the IceBreakers. And, to add insult to injury, the Chiefs' new coach is a woman (Jessica Steen). It takes the return of the Hanson Brothers to get Linden and the Chiefs to rediscover their pride and passion for the game. Old time hockey is back!"
    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!
    Actually, it does look like a Straight-To-Video movie... If you click on "Join the Team", you get this:

    Ya know what, I just realized something....I wonder if this is why McFarlane came out with those Hansen Brothers action figures? I wonder if they were made up for a movie promotion, but the movie was going to be so bad, it never came out in the theaters and is just now making it to video? Anyone know when this was actually filmed?
    Hmmm.I've got the whole set. I always wondered why he wanted to make action figures out of those guys
