Average sports flick
17 February 2001 | by Mitch-38See all my reviews

Sports related movies tend to interest a rather select crowd, unless the script can provide enough diversive character or background development. LES BOYS does so, broadening its appeal, and telling a pretty good story. There's some pretty funny antics, and a few exceptional bon mots. Unfortunately, like most sports films, there's a LOT of cliche and predictability, too. LES BOYS doesn't sink from the weight of this truth, yet it is not helped, either. Pleasant, but not exactly hilarious.

The characters are normal, likeable, gregarious folks, who gather to blow off stress via their weekly hockey games. We get to know them somewhat, and enjoy the film much more in the process. It's an easy going movie that'll entertain. Recommended.
