Near the beginning of the film, Scott Voss is "teaching" his class and puts a newspaper over his head. On the paper is a photo of a hockey player with the headline "Season Suspended," suggesting a suspended hockey season. When this film was released in the fall of 2012, there really was a suspended hockey season due to a player lockout. See more »
During the final fight scene with Ken Dietrick the end of Round two is crowned by Dietrick throwing a Haymaker into Scott's lower jaw. This knocks out Scott's mouth guard, you see the mouth guard fly out of his mouth, and land on the wire of the octagon, in the next shot you see it still hanging on the wire. Yet Scott has to hazily walk halfway across the octagon to retrieve his mouth guard from the floor. See more »
I had low expectations for this given the plot (which you can't take seriously) and figured the best parts were shown in the trailers. I must say I was pleasantly surprised.
The plot is all very predictable but really who cares for this type of movie. The dialog is not that sharp (Seven Psychopaths it is not) and while some parts are a little corny, the film is light hearted, does not take itself too seriously and is excellent entertainment if you want to switch off your brain at the end of the week.
This film moves at a good pace, is funny throughout, with some real laugh out loud moments, and leaves you with a good feeling at the end.
