Synopsis​

"BRILLIANT ... ROWDY, RAUNCHY, HILARIOUS, ABSURD ... THE GREATEST HOCKEY MOVIE OF ALL TIME" – ROLLING STONE
A true champion among sports movies, the hilarious comedy Slap Shot stars the one and only Paul Newman as Reggie Dunlop, the player/coach of the Charlestown Chiefs, a minor league hockey team. Struggling with an abysmal season and a dwindling fanbase, Dunlop switches up his game plan in order to beef up attendance: unleashing new team acquisitions the Hanson Brothers on the competition! The Chiefs' more aggressive and violent style of play reignites the fans and the team's win/loss record, making them championship contenders.
Outrageously funny and highly quotable, Slap Shot takes the trophy as an all-time great in movie mayhem ... on ice!

Bonus Features​

  • Audio Commentary With The Hanson Brothers
  • Puck Talk With The Hansons

I love this film. But will we ever see a release that is not about the Hanson brothers? How about a true special edition with new supplements?

A criminally underrated 70s class. Like all films by George Roy Hill, there's more to this film than meets the eye. It's a sharply observed microcosm of America in the guise of a "hockey" film. Great casting and direction as well as being superbly edited by one of the great editors Dede Allen. And Paul Newman and Strother Martin, what else would you want.

Agree. Shout usually throws a new interview mixed in with existing supplements. Unfortunate that they didn’t with this title.
