Storyline

The story takes the battle of the sexes into the hockey arena, as Paula Taymore - who almost once made the Olympic team - finds herself drawn into a challenge match against an irritating local men's squad. Fresh from a painful divorce, and doubting herself, Paula must make a winner out of an explosive, irreverent crew of women hockey players who flock to her town, Red Deer Alberta, to assemble the team.

Goofs

In the final match the announcer says "the third and final quarter". The parts of a hockey game are called "periods". If you played three quarters you'd never play a "full" game. It might have been a "deliberate error" as the announcer did state that she had never announced a hockey game before. See more »

For Once! Hoser Authenticity!
25 February 2005 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Watched "Chicks" last night on MovieCentral. This is leagues beyond the appalling "Men With Brooms" and smacks of hockey love and dressing-room-stink authenticity. You can almost hear Margot Kidder's false teeth clack with conviction! I found the mix of hand-held camera verite and the small town Alberta cinematography to be intoxicating. People who slag off Canadian movies should have a look at this unpretentious gem. I hope it comes out on DVD soon. It makes no apologies for its' setting or characters and is obviously filmed miles away from any studios. I'm amazed this got the financial go-ahead to proceed to film, though I doubt it played at any actual theaters except those within the legendary "200 mile radius" of Calgary.
