This hockey comedy is a true phenomenon. Les Boys has captured the hearts of Canadian audiences with its rowdy humour, down-to-earth characterizations and appealing plots.
Stan (Girard), the very likeable tavern owner and hockey coach, allows himself to run up a huge gambling debt to Méo (Lebeau), the local Mob boss. Méo offers Stan a deal: If his pub’s team, Les Boys, can defeat Méo’s band of thugs at a game of hockey, the tavern remains his. If not, the Mob will take over Chez Stan. Naturally, Les Boys, an out-of-shape group of hockey enthusiasts, are highly motivated to win the game. How they go about doing so, however, is a slapshot of laughs.
