CINEQUEST FILM REVIEW: PUCK HOGS

PUCK HOGS

On Sunday we watched as the Canadian hockey team beat the US in Olympic overtime.  An hour later I was presenting PUCK HOGS to a crowd of disappointed hockey fans at the San Jose Repertory Theatre.  I told them I hoped this film would cheer them up, and I think it did as there was raucous laughter throughout the film.

PUCK HOGS is a mockumentary about the worst recreational hockey team in Canadian history.  It’s done in sort of a “Reno 911” style, with that type of humor.  The audience of hockey fans seemed to love it and were having a great time.  I will say up front that I am not a fan of hockey and not really a fan of “Reno 911”, and this film was honestly torture for me to sit through.  There were scenes of men urinating on bathroom walls and eating urinal pucks, and there were about 57 too many jokes about butt-holes.  However like I said, the audience was laughing like crazy through the entire thing.

The verdict?  I hated it.  But if you are a hockey fan or enjoy this type of humor then you might possibly love it.  I am just the wrong person to review this kind of film.

Attention SJ Sharks Fans, Former Sharks Fans and Sharks Fans who are tired of their team losing…

SJ SharksWe suppose it’s possible that you have no questions for the San Jose Sharks President, General Manager, Head Coach or any of their players. 

Maybe you were completely satisfied with how the team played this year. 

Maybe you were thrilled with the value you received for the price of your playoff tickets. 

Or maybe you’re really a Ducks fan.

But maybe you think these same people actually have some explaining to do.

Satisfied or not with the season, Thursday is your chance to ask questions.  The annual “State of the Sharks” event will be held Thursday, May 14 at HP Pavilion at 7pm (TODAY).  Open to the general public, as always it will provide a forum for Sharks fans to ask questions directly to members of the organization as the team prepares for the 2009-10 season.

Scheduled to be in attendance along with President and Chief Executive Officer Greg Jamison are Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson, Head Coach Todd McLellan and players Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, Dan Boyle and Joe Pavelski.  Other players may possibly join too.

There will not be any talk about future player picks or the draft as none of that will be settled until late June.  You’re certainly welcome to give your opinion however.

Free parking will be available in the rear parking lots adjacent to HP Pavilion and attendees are asked to enter through the North doors, located near the rear of the building. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

For more details, please call 408.999.5757.
