''Slap Shot'' is a comedy movie released in 1977 that has earned a sort of cult status among hockey fans and is recognized as the best hockey movie of all time by no less an authority than ''The Hockey News''.

The Charlestown Chiefs are a minor league hockey team in the Federal League. With a losing record, a lack of popularity, and the fact that the town's mill - a main local job provider - is closing, the team seems doomed to be folded after the season. But then the team picks up the Hanson Brothers, three child-like young men that play the roughest hockey the team has ever seen (played by three [[CastTheExpert real-life minor league hockey players]]). Reggie Dunlop (PaulNewman), a veteran player and the team's coach decides to retool the team after the brothers after their fighting and overly aggressive style of play excites the Chiefs' fans. This decision splits the team between players who enjoy some good rough-housing on the ice, and those that prefer the "clean" style of playing. In a side plot, one of the "clean" players, Ned Braden, is on the verge of losing his wife due to her displeasure with their lifestyle.

* {{Pittsburgh}}: Was filmed in and around the city. PaulNewman became something of a local fixture for a few months during filming as he seemed to really enjoy the area.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The fashions, hairstyles, and music are so seventies its painful. Plus the background story is the the closing of a steel mill and the crushing blow to the local economy. A very serious issue throughout the rust belt in the seventies. To boot there's a very memorable scene about women's sexual liberation!
