April 13, 2012 - Boston.com - By Tom Russo, Globe Correspondent

You might not think a hockey movie would qualify as "feel-good" when it cheerily fetishizes violence with lovingly crafted slo-mo shots — set to Puccini! — of blood spatter and knocked-out incisors hitting the ice. But that's precisely the trick pulled off by star Seann William Scott ("American Reunion"), director Michael Dowse ("Take Me Home Tonight"), and everyone else involved in "Goon," which makes a bid for "Slap Shot"-style cred with the Judd Apatow crowd. The movie's unlikely sincerity can't completely offset its ugliness for less bloodthirsty viewers, but it helps, and it does smooth over some narrative rough edges.
