‘Goon’ sequel finally pucks it into UK cinemas!

by Phil Wheat


Seann William Scott returns in Goon: Last of the Enforcers the cartilage crunching sequel to the 2011 hockey comedy Goon, a follow-up that’s even “faster, funnier and more foul-mouthed than the original.”

Back as  hockey star Doug Glatt, Scott is supported here with cast that includes Liev Schreiber (Spotlight) and Alison Pill (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), reprising their roles from the first film, Elisha Cuthbert (24) and Callum Keith Rennie (Californication), with 22 Jump Street’s Wyatt Russell as Glatt’s nemesis, and Deadpool’s T. J. Miller on scene-stealing form as inappropriate sports commentator Chad Bailey.

From the press release:

An assured feature directing debut from comedy star Jay Baruchel (This Is The End, Knocked Up, How To Train Your Dragon), this is a film you can’t help but love – crass but charming, packed with eccentric and loveable characters, and just the right balance of sports carnage and comedy to make you wince and hoot in quick succession. An irreverent and riotous sports comedy that recalls classics like Slap Shot and Bad News Bears, as well as the close-to-the-knuckle, belly laugh comedy of Baruchel’s stablemates Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow, this is that rare occasion when the sequel might just be better than the original – no pucking joke!

Goon: Last of the Enforcers is released in UK cinemas on September 8th. Check out images from the film below:
