Rating:

Slap Shot 2: Breaking the Ice is the direct to video follow up to the 70s favorite which had starred Paul Newman. The movie brings us up to date on the classic Chiefs from Charlestown in the modern day, once again struggling to keep their heads above water and their record above basement status. Stephen Baldwin stars as a washed-up ex NHL star who is now playing for and coaching theChiefs. The current owner of the Chiefs feels that selling the team would benefit the players' exposure as well as their bank accounts. In turn, the team is bought out by a mid-west business mogul who has no desire for the sport whatsoever. The result of the purchase is a 'Harlem Globetrotters-esque' type of family show, causing the Chiefs to be the always losing opponents against a superstar, preppy, pieced-together hockey team. The story is the struggle with their true identity as a team, as well as the morality of a corporate-run business.moreless
