Mystery Alaska: Friday October 1, 1999

A publicity stunt turns into the ultimate lopsided competition when the world-famous New York Rangers face off against the team from Mystery, Alaska, a hockey-loving town of only 633 people. Team Mystery is a rag tag collection of eccentric locals, including the town's sheriff, its grocer, a deliveryman, and a high school senior who play for the love of the game, not fame or big money. Jay Roach, the director of "Austin Powers" 1 & 2 and David E. Kelley, the creator of "Ally McBeal" and "The Practice," introduce us to Mystery, Alaska, a small town that risks everything in the challenge of a lifetime. Hollywood Pictures

 The People's Review of Mystery Alaska

I think this was a great movie. It portrayed how far team work and a will to succeed can take you. And that a small town such as the imaginary Mystery still has a lot to give.

I really enjoyed this movie. It had a combination of everything...comedy, romance, drama, action. I thought that it was very well done. I'd see it again and again. And the ending was different from your A-typical sports movies. It's a must-see!

A real feel good movie.  Combines comedy, romance, small town spirit, and reminds us that even when we lose, sometimes we win. Best movie showing this weekend.

This movie will become the next "Slap Shot".  A hockey clasic.

This was a nice little movie to kill a couple hours with and I and the rest of the audience thoroughly enjoyed it.  It had great acting and action. It won't be a blockbuster, but it's not trying to be one either.  It was just good.

score = 90
Loveable characters, and an underdog look at a world dominated by the notion that "pro" sports are the only real athletes. Refreshing, and leaves you with a warm feeling in your heart, especially if you grew up in a small "nobody" town.

I took my gorlfriend to see this movie last night.  She is normally very picky about her movies and she thought it was a really good movie.  I thoroughly enjoyed it too.   It has a great story and even some sub stories, some really good acting (Even Burt Reynolds if you can beleive it).  I am a really big hockey fan too so this made the movie even more enjoyable.  I recoomend you see it and see it on the big screen.   If you don't like it, I refund your money for you.

score = 70
Excellent ending...I hope to see Mystery sometime down the road in the NHL!
