Mystery, Alaska | 1999 | R | - 5.4.7

A publicity stunt turns into the ultimate lopsided competition, when the world famous New York Rangers face-off against the team from Mystery, Alaska, a hockey-loving town of only 633 people. With Russell Crowe, Hank Azaria, Mary McCormack, Lolita Davidovich, Ron Eldard, Colm Meaney, Maury Chaykin and Burt Reynolds.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo with references to masturbation, homosexuality and adultery; condoms are shown and discussed. A sex scene with a woman on top in her bra groaning and thrusting. A couple starts to have sex: she's stripping and we see the tops of her breasts; he begins to strip and they open a condom but he prematurely ejaculates. A man is naked except for a jock strap and we see his buttocks and a brief glimpse of the bottom of his scrotum. A trailer is rocking and we hear groans. There are a few kissing scenes (and one scene of French kissing).

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man is shot in the foot (not seen) with some blood. A skater is hit hard while on the ice. A man hits another in the mouth and knocks him out, there's a punch in the face and a punch in the eye leaving a bloody nose and a black eye. There are some fights on the ice during hockey games. A man has a heart attack and dies. A man is hit during a game and cuts his eye leaving blood running down his face throughout game. A bloody face and bandage are seen. A man is hit in the crotch with a puck. There are two vomiting scenes.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
