Slapshot slapstick fails to take a pratfall
24 April 1999 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

A moderately amusing French comedy about an ice hockey movie being made on an ice rink. Most of the humor is of the falling-over variety and the characters are all stereotypes. There are far too many jokes about slipping on ice. Toussaint tries hard to work the film-within-a-film idea (the film crew also has a TV crew making a documentary of the movie at the same time). There is one totally gratuitous sex scene thrown in for good measure. It has a few inspired moments but on the whole it's a good idea stretched out too long.
