Just laughed out loud while watching Score, The Hockey Musical on the back of the airplane seat in front of me. What was so funny? Not hockey (at least not to me) and not musicals (not my cup of tea either) but the backstory which involves a 15-year-old hockey prodigy (played by Noah Reid) who is discovered playing shinny on the neighbourhood rink. He's never played organized sports because he's been home-schooled and now his lovingly perplexed parents (played by Olivia Newton-John and Marc Jordan) have to try to change their intellectual/new age/artsy-fartsy world view to include the game of hockey. The best friend and soon-to-be love interest is, of course, the girl next door (played by Allie Macdonald), cute as a button and also home-schooled—the two kids have spent many hours together on field trips to art galleries and museums. Once our hero gets his parents on board he is faced with a personal dilemma--how do you play hockey without beating people up?. The solution he comes up with is way too cheesy, but the tunes are catchy and Canadians in the audience (even those who have been home-schooled!) will get all the jokes.
