Slap Shot has to be one of the most politically incorrect movies of all time. And I loved it! I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. I wish a squishy, millennial libtard could watch it with me so I can measure the reaction on his face. I can just imagine the thought processes of an emasculated wussy sitting in a stupor as the characters in this film assault his delicate sensibilities.
In a day and age when a president of the United States wears mom jeans, a helmet, and bubble wrap when riding a bicycle, it felt good to reflect upon a time when men were men, and a leader of the free world could throw a baseball.
The seventies was a great era, except of course the fashion. What in the hell was going on there? I still remember the bellbottom pants, white belts, platform shoes, and god awful flowery shirts. How that ensemble happened is a mystery to me. But to be fair, the cars and music were great. And there was none of this touchy-feely crap that has permeated our society. Slap Shot definitely has none of that nonsense in the story line.What I found amazing is that this movie is based on an actual minor league hockey team. Some of the exploits are so over-the-top that you’d say there is no way that could’ve happened. Even some of the characters are loosely based on some of the players.
Slap Shot is a man’s movie and a top 10 cult favorite. Hell, even today’s lesbian might enjoy it. They’re as much of a man as our president.
