The new coach, Sean Linden Stephen Baldwin , leads the rambunctious squad -- which includes the famed Hanson brothers -- through their victories with little concern for their often violent antics. There is some nudity and a brief sex scene that won't work for kids except maybe mature teenagers. The Chiefs' principal star, hotheaded Gordie Miller David Paetkau , sabotages Claremont's plans at every opportunity, playing childish pranks like feeding Viagra to the Ice-Breakers before a press conference. Following another disappointing season, the team is sold to a family entertainment corporation called Better America, run by an executive named Richmond Claremont. This was somewhat clever, but after the 3rd time, it was just hokey. It's not as good as the first movie, but.
The Hansens can be counted on for that. As Claremont creates a spectator-sport sensation modeled after the World Wrestling Federation, the Chiefs learn that they're slated to be the clownish villains. Finally back to their old ways, the Chiefs use their physical brutality and beat the IceBreakers on a last-second goal by Sean. Still it was a pretty good acting job overall. Without telling Linden, Chiefs' owner Matt Fox David Hemmings unloads the losing hockey team on media mogul Richmond Claremont Gary Busey. If they want to keep collecting paychecks, they must swallow their pride and play by Claremont's rules; any hopes of playing real hockey are dashed. Unless you are really curious and can get it super cheap and can stomach hockey players as almost Ice Capades skaters.
I think there is a very good reason why you go from 1977 to 2001 to make a sequel. This spiteful serio-comedy lionizes butt-scratching doofuses and head-bashing jocks, filtering layers of misogyny and homophobia through a disingenuous defense of boorish male-bonding and childish behavior. Without telling Linden, Chiefs' owner Matt Fox David. Rating: This 25-years-later sequel to the popular Paul Newman picture revels in sexual innuendo and sports idolatry. The new coach, Sean Linden Stephen Baldwin , leads the rambunctious squad -- which includes the famed Hanson brothers -- through their victories with little concern for their often violent antics. Sean and the rest of the players soon discover that Claremont intends to use the Super Chiefs as a team which loses in scripted games against a -type team called the Omaha IceBreakers, in an attempt by Claremont to make the game suitable for a family audience. If you purely love the 1st one so much don't bother with this one.
He puts pressure on the debt-ridden Linden to persuade the others to honor their new contracts and become skating cut-ups like the Harlem Globetrotters. Claremont's managers even dump the Chiefs' talented Hanson Brothers Steve Carlson, David Hanson, Jeff Carlson because they're not telegenic. I got it because it wasn't too expensive and it was a good thing. West Virginia's ice hockey team, the Charlestown Chiefs, is as fiery as ever. A good watch at a good price. Realizing his love for the game, Sean returns to the team, along with the Hanson Brothers, to play a real game against the IceBreakers as the Chiefs.
Claremont demotes Linden to player and appoints a new coach, Jessie Dage Jessica Steen , granddaughter of a hockey legend. Cast: , , , , , , , Director: Genres: Production Co: Universal Studios Inc.

I saw when I was looking for the original this one came up too. This 25-years-later sequel to the popular Paul Newman picture revels in sexual innuendo and sports idolatry.

But the team's approach is threatened when the club is bought by executive Richmond Claremont Gary Busey , who pressures them to throw games and tone down their tempers in exchange for money. The roles they were playing didn't seem to come naturally to the other actors. It was a hilarious look at the seedier side of minor pro Ice Hockey. This movie did not disappoint it sucks that bad. A hint that it is that bad is Gary Busey is in it. I had the good fortune to meet two of the three a few years ago and they are just as funny in person.
The Chiefs struggle both on and off the ice, and violence remains their hallmark as Sean does not try to control the fighting trio of the. Also you can tell that Stephen Baldwin is trying hard, but he isn't the most talented Baldwin brother. Until 2 weeks ago I did not even know this one existed. The Hanson brothers are, again, the best part of the movie. You just want them to get their asses kicked just for that.
There were some lines lifted directly from the original. To that end, he plans to pit the rowdy Chiefs against the Icebreakers, his squeaky-clean skating champs. The Hansen brothers reprised their characters well, but everyone else was new. Having seen the original, I was skeptical about a follow-up 24 years later. Other than being the current version of the downtrodden Charlestown Chiefs and the Hanson brothers are back, this one doesn't have a whole lot to do with the 1st one in my opinion.
