It's a sort of adult The Mighty Ducks that stretches and strains in the direction of The Last Picture Show, but falls flat on the ice.

...It is Australian Crowe, a previous non-skater, who gives the film's standout performance....Crowe is one of those blessed leading men who can convincingly disappear inside a variety of roles...

Rating: 2/5 -- O roteiro cria uma série de subtramas que jamais se tornam relevantes e - o que é pior - mergulham no mais puro clichê.

Conveys some of the thrill and ferocity of ice hockey while skillfully folding together multiple personal dramas.

Rating: 1.5/4 -- With so many characters and plotlines, it seems that TV king Kelley mistook this big-screen assignment for another network pilot. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- No matter how stale the storyline, these actors breathe fresh emotion into it.

Product Description:

When former resident Charles Danner (Azaria) writes a Sports Illustrated article exposing the "Saturday Game," the town of Mystery, Alaska is turned upside down. The game, a Mystery tradition, consists of locals, young and old, who gather weekly on a pond to play a serious game of hockey. A sports network sees big bucks in setting up an exhibition game between the Alaskans and the New York Rangers. Coming from mega-writer/producer Kelley and co-screenwriter O'Byrne, the film plays like a quirky blend of NORTHERN EXPOSURE and SLAPSHOT.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Mystery, Alaska
With Russell Crowe (THE INSIDER, A BEAUTIFUL MIND), Hank Azaria (GODZILLA, THE BIRD CAGE), and Burt Reynolds leading an incredible all-star cast, here's a fun, uplifting, action-packed story that everyone will love! A remote hockey-obsessed town populated by 633 of the most eccentric characters you'd ever want to meet, Mystery is the kind of place where nothing ever changes. But then life as they know it gets turned completely upside down! When a publicity stunt brings the world-famous New York Rangers -- and the national spotlight -- to Mystery for a game with the local team of weekend warriors, the whole town rises to meet the challenge of a lifetime! Also starring Mary McCormack (TRUE CRIME, DEEP IMPACT) and Lolita Davidovich (PLAY IT TO THE BONE, JUNGLE 2 JUNGLE) in another critical favorite from the hit-making director of AUSTIN POWERS 1&2 -- you'll stand and cheer as this ragtag bunch shows that nothing can melt their dreams of a miracle on ice!
