96 minutes – Mockumentary
Canadian distributor: Protocol Entertainment
The Canadian obsession with hockey is explored in this mockumentary that follows the lives of a group of aging everyday guys whose passion for the game far transcends their talents. The Puck Hogs have their backs to the wall as they face exclusion from the Kinsmen Cup Tournament by convener Irv Mason (Colin Mochrie) if they don’t manage to stick it to their rivals, the Ice Holes, and make it to the finals this time around. Team captain Jeremy (Jeff Geddis) proves that while there is no “I” in team, there definitely is one in marriage: his devotion to hockey caused him to miss his own wedding years before and lose Caroline (Rachel Wilson) to Lance (Liam Card), his arch nemesis and chief Ice Hole. Somewhere between Slap Shot and This Is Spinal Tap, this bawdy ensemble comedy pokes fun at stereotypical Canadian rink rats.
