Lame story, lamer dialog, but as a record of Canadian culture in the early 1970s, with its embarrassing haircuts, leisure suits, and stubby beer bottles, it has a certain interest. The only convincing drama is on the ice, with real teams playing staged and actual games in arenas gloriously free of advertising and flashing lights. Watch for Bobby Orr, Dave Keon, Gordie Howe, and a host of others -- even a glimpse of broadcasting legend Foster Hewitt. But these short scenes are separated by long episodes of syrupy romance and half-baked conflict between the hard-hitting rookie and the neurotic hippie folksinger. We never do get much of an idea why these two people "dig" one another.

The disk includes a commentary track by the two stars and some other guy, none of whom can remember much about the movie. The other feature is an SCTV spoof starring John Candy as the hockey player; you have to wonder why they bothered.

Remember this movie when I saw it for my birthday when it first came out. Have been searching for it and glad to have found it again.A look at the NHL just before the WHA years , typical 60's and 70's Canadian stuff , fun and the cameo's are great.

A Canadian "classic". It was great to see some of the old time Leafs and NHLers from the 70's.

I have written elsewhere that this should've been made into DVD form! Ahh, but at last, it has been! Bravo and well done, VSC! Looooooonnng overdue! Also, the SCTV parody of the film has been added! A classic in its own right! Two classics on one disc! You can't lose, unless you pass this deal over! We Canadians never used to be proud of our classic films as compared to our American cousins. Well, now we've done it! Well worth what you pay. Art Hindle and Trudy Young are wonderful as the loving young couple. Really strong performances by John Vernon, Austin Willis, Vivian Reis and George Armstrong knock it outta the park!
