This movie takes place in the fictional town of Mystery Alaska, the game is scheduled for January 16th. Early in the movie we are told the game is 32 days away which would make it mid December. In mid December it would be dark for all but 3-5 hours of the day yet most of the movie is shown as taking place during daylight hours including the scene in the school and the sheriff going to work.

I had no idea at the time that I would enjoy a movie about hockey, and I was right, because this movie had nothing really to do with hockey.It's a great character based movie about a small town that makes it big and the reason the town makes it big is because of it's people. It's a great rocky type movie that makes you root for a small town and it's wonderful characters. Russell Crowe is excellent as well as the entire cast and a great turn by Burt Reynolds as the town judge and coach. This is a very well crafted, witty , warm and realistic and just a charming movie overall. Don't let the hockey fool you, this is a movie about people and a quite enjoyable movie I may add.
