This trailer for Goon opens with Seann William Scott wondering about his place in the world. His father and brother have the whole doctor thing, and all he has is a willingness to be seen in public with Jay Baruchel. Until one fateful evening when he beats the sh*t out of a Canadian. This gives another Canadian the idea that maybe Canadians would pay to see this Canadian beat other Canadians mercilessly. And thus, he is declared their greatest champion. It’s a lot like Gladiator. But only if the characters in Gladiator drank Molson and ate Poutine.
Oh, and Jim’s Dad is there. Did anyone bother to tell him this isn’t an American Pie sequel?
