When Mystery, Alaska's amateur hockey team accepts a challenge to play against the New York Rangers, the entire population must put their petty differences aside and pull together as their small town becomes the center of a nationally televised event.Written by
During the second period intermission, the three figure skaters behind the Zamboni are wearing blue jerseys with gold trim and on one jersey you can see the number 18. These are replicas of the Charleston Chiefs Hanson brothers jerseys from the movie "Slapshot". See more »
At the end of the movie in the credits the year is MCMXCVIX, an impossible combination of Roman numerals (it should read "MCMXCIX"). See more »

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.
