After suffering the loss of his best friend Charlie on Christmas Eve, sixteen year old Bobby Whiteside ventures out onto the lake where they played countless games of winter hockey. Upon shoveling the ice surface he makes a shocking discovery --- a magic, perfectly groomed hockey rink that appears only at night and only in his presence. When a local construction company purchases the land for development, Bobby must join forces with his high school crush, rally the town, and play one last game on the night pond --- with an old friend.
At one point Bobby sees a hockey game on TV. It shows Wayne Gretzky on the bench in an Edmonton Oilers uniform. A few seconds later the TV is visible again, and this time Gretzky is in an LA Kings uniform skating behind the net. Based on visual clues in this movie (Polaroid camera, the cars, lack of cellphones) - the movie is pegged to have taken place in the early 80s. Gretzky was not with LA until 1988. See more »
Long, Slow and Unravels at the End
As some others have said, this could have been good, but slow pacing, lack of crisp writing and an ending that simply is stupid killed it.
