    So what studio executive numb nuts decided to take the best comedy of the year and make it impossible to see. How wide of a release did this movie get…4 screen? I was telling friends across the country to check this movie out…then they call me back asking me what the hell was I talking about. I told them to try and find it on pay per view with some success. Still WTF! Is this the definition of development HELL?

    Hey Jay! We are huge fans and “Out of Your League” is by far our favorite date movie. My husband and I caught Goon last night. We loved the movie and bought it this afternoon, but my question is about the extras. Why include the “POWER PLAY” clips? While it was fun the see on set stuff, it seemed odd…

    how was your experience with this movie?…..

    Would you have liked to be a hockey player than an actor?

    Im a fan of your work. I have a foundation that helps children that hagenuk survived major burns. I hold autograph events to raise money for them and a chance for survivors to meet stars of film, art, and sport. My question is, Would you be interested in appearing or donating some signed movie posters for raffle/auction at the events? It is a tax write off for appearing. Please let me know either way. Thank you for this and your time.
