At the end of Scott’s review for Human Centipede 2, you’ll find the film’s poster. That poster is less horrifying and the movie is probably less horrifying than Adam Sandler’s upcoming “comedy” Jack and Jill. I’m starting to suspect that Sandler may be some kind of evil genius who is conducting a social experiment to see just how awful he can make his movies and why people keep coming to see them. Or he just likes money and doesn’t give a shit if his movies are terrible.
There’s also two new posters for Goon, a movie I dug when I caught it at TIFF. Seeing a close-up of Jay Baruchel miming cunnilingus is also less horrifying than anything related to Jack and Jill. Hit the jump to check out the posters. Jack and Jill opens November 11th. Goon has distribution but no release date has been announced.
Hockey, as viewed through the eyes of Michael Dowse’s Goon, is 60 minutes of fighting occasionally interrupted by moving a puck around on an icy surface. It shouldn’t bother hockey aficionados or anyone else too much since the film is delightfully crass, painfully funny, and grounded by a cuddly performance from Seann William Scott. The movie has a big place in its heart for George Roy Hill’s Slap Shot but it’s not trying to upstage its predecessor or make itself the heir-apparent. It’s just trying to make you hurt from laughing so hard.

Here goes my best shot at getting everyone up to speed on the indie hockey comedy Goon via a ton of info that may or may not be news to your ears. For starters, Liev Schreiber and Alison Pill have joined the film. While Schreiber’s role is unknown as of now, Pill will play the female lead. Additionally, Seann William Scott, Jay Baruchel, and Marc-Andre Grondin have landed roles as well. According to THR, Goon tells the story of “Doug Glatt, a bouncer (Scott) who has been touched by the fist of God. Upon discovering both his right hook and skates, he joins a downtrodden hockey team and inspires them into new heights.” That in mind, Baruchel will play Scott’s best friend whereas Grondin will play a French-Canadian hockey star.
Goon was written by Baruchel and Evan Goldberg with Michael Dowse directing. For more info on the film, including Baruchel’s own description, hit the jump.
