Dreary life in a small Canadian town and hockey.
22 August 2000 | by (Washington, D.C.) – See all my reviews

The movie isn't very good at any level. But it does have a nifty shower scene with Dullea and Ashley. To show how far Canadian movies have come, try seeing this and The Sweet Hereafter back to back. That is if you can get through this one.
