  • I didn't care.

    This had to be an episode that tried way too hard. There were a few funny bits here and there but the two part series just wasn't all that good. I think it was overrated and shouldn't be rated a 9. But in any case, the writing was average, the comedy was forced and the plot was stupid. Let's face it, men playing women in hockey? That isn't even funny. I think that it was stupid. Lois fighting a woman? Funny, but not hilarious. Dewey not being able to eat candy? That was SO stupid of a storyline has it was a one episode thing. Thank you.moreless

    Malcolm is upset at Laurie for liking another guy. Reese and George beat up little kids and take their stuff in order to win the scavenger hunt. In the end, George punches Reese and takes the money. Dewey keeps eating candy. The woman that Lois was talking to goes insane and they start fighting. Hal fires the new boss, even though he isn't authorized to you. Francis feels bad, so he decides to win the game. They make him slide on the ice. Malcolm rubs poison ivy on his face on accident.



    This episode was fantastic! It was funny at the end. Malcolm's face looked weird. I'm glad Francis told the truth. This episode gets a 10 out of 10!moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • There are a few problems in the hockey game. First, when the fight breaks out and the end, the clock is still running and the game is continuing. Whenever there is a fight in hockey the game is stopped. Second, when Frances goes for the game winning goal, he pokes the puck in with a broken hockey stick. It is a penalty to play with a broken stick, so the goal should have been disallowed.

    • When Francis is dragged along the ice at the end of the episode, supposedly naked, his black trousers are clearly visible in one shot.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • (everyone enters the car, Dewey is like an animal struggling inside a sack, Reese has a black eye, Malcolm has a big red face, and Lois is covered in mud)
      Hal: It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
