Slap Shot may have done a lot of fast skating and some solid body checking, but in the last period it makes a final costly slip -- and misses its goal.

Slap Shot has a kind of vitality to it that overwhelms most of the questions relating to consistency of character and point of view.

Half the time Hill invites the audience to get off on the mayhem, the other half of the time he decries it.
An unsually abrasive sporting drama from director Hill.
Raw, raunchy, and absolutely hilarious.
There are still some nice touches of absurdist satirical wit hanging out along the sidelines, given extra bite by Dede Allen's superbly pacy editing.
-Geoff AndrewFull Review
This film is full of friendly slap shots, romantic icing, and passionate goals. It's well worth checking out.

The quintessential hockey flick
Pushed the puck for nudity and language of its time.
Best sports movie ever. Period.
Fingindo criticar a glorificacao da violencia e sua utilizacao como espetaculo, o filme comete os mesmos erros que supostamente condena.
One of the funniest sports movies ever.
Outrageously fun hockey comedy. I wish the Hanson brothers from this film would come around to body check those other Hanson brothers and their MMM-BOP crapola
It's amazing how great Paul Newman is. Let's admit it : the script for "Slapshot" wouldn't have read any better than your by-the-numbers sports underdog movie. guts and glory farce "Slapshot" plays like a true classic.
