Here’s what the distributor says about their film: (from the producer) Nothing has been the same in the little town of Long Bay, Ontario since Chris Cutter (Paul Gross) disappeared ten years ago. When curling star Cutter took off, he didn’t just throw away a chance to win the Golden Broom—the “Stanley Cup” of the curling world—he actually hurled the curling stones into the waters of local Trout Lake. And he also threw away his chance at love, leaving his beautiful fiancée Julie Foley (Michelle Nolden) standing at the altar. Although Julie survived Cutter’s rapid retreat (she went off to become astronaut), he sunk the sporting dreams of his three teammates and left them behind to fare for themselves. And they haven’t fared too well…

Negative—I found the movie to be not suitable for Christians to be viewing. I walked out of the movie the first ten minutes. In that ten minutes there were approximately 10 swear words and an extreme sex scene.

Negative—This movie was hilarious, entertaining, and best of all, Canadian! Unfortunately, it was also bogged down with more than its share of profanity, sex, drugs, and alcohol (although the emphasis is on the devastating effects of alcohol abuse). It is a far cry from your average Hollywood flick—Paul Gros did an amazing job of portraying life unpretentiously. This is a movie that feels like it could have happened next door.

Although all of the sexual and drug-related material is played strictly for laughs, it could still be offensive. The profanity is extreme. I guess the best way to sum it up is that you won’t regret watching it, especially if you’re Canadian, but you aren’t likely to watch it twice because of the inappropriate material.
My Ratings: [Very Offensive / 5]
