One of those movies that you like better than you thought you would.
Maybe it's Patrick Swayze?
Or, maybe because it's about hockey.
Whatever the reason, it's a funny, sweet, and all-around good movie.
One of the best scenes is when the land lady makes tea.
Watch it...you'll like it.

"OK, who cares if it's "unrealistic." In the very small Hockey Genre this is without a doubt the best of the bunch. Why...because it's entertaining. Rob Lowe and Swayze at their peak and a goofy first entry by Keanu Reeves gave us a glimpse of things to come. He cant act. The only downside to this flick is the highly irritating "lets get it on and make my dad angry" content but other than that a fun, and sometimes funny film.The DVD is very very good with 4 stars for both the widescreen video and audio that you can't tell from 5.1. Four stitches."
Great Hockey Flick

"While this movie is probably best reserved for extreme Hockey Fans, it also has a certain flare that makes a person realize how pure the game of Hockey really is. I saw this movie when I was younger and it a sparked a desire and love for the game that is with me even today. Hockey is the only sport left in which players play with heart and passion for the game, and this movie is excellent at betraying that feeling to it's audience. I personally enjoy this movie at least once a year (to get me in a Hockey mood) and can't wait to get it on DVD!"
One of the best made hockey movies ever

"Youngblood accuretly shows the what hockey players go through around that teenage years while playing hockey. Some feel the movie is made to be more violent and all then hockey really is. Well first this movie was made in the 80's when ice hockey was alot more violent and you can go and tell the canadians that played then that they were not as physical as the movie depicts. Thia movie shows what teams do to players on the team and the hardships endured with college hockey. I've played hockey for 14 years and play for college now and you go through alot at times but its fun and the movie shows it. This is one of the best hockey movies ever made 2nd to slapshot. This is a must buy."
