Slap Shot 2: Breaking the Ice ★★ 2002 (R)

Okay, it took 25 years to make a sequel—is this a record? Rude and crude hockey comedy finds the Charlestown Chiefs being sold to media mogul Busey, who moves the team to Omaha, Nebraska. But the team is not supposed to play “real” hockey; they are only supposed to take the money and serve as comic foils to the game, which upsets the geeky Hanson brothers and team captain Baldwin. 104m/C VHS, DVD . Stephen Baldwin, Jeff Carlson, Steve Carlson, Dave Hanson, Gary Busey, Callum Keith Rennie, Jessica Steen; D: Steve Boyum; W: Broderick Miller; C: Joel Ransom. VIDEO
