Not sure if I've seen that one.
Stan loses job as newspaper boy. Bicycle towed away. Must earn money to get bike back to continue as newspaper boy. Lands job of Pee-Wee hockey team coach. No experience in coaching job, in out of his depth. One child member (Nelson) of team has leaukemia and will die in a few weeks. Parents devasted. Stan does his best. Parents of suffering child (Nelson) look to him as a father-like figure'. Parents can't expalin to their child 'you will die soon' and asks Stan to do it for them, 'cos, as hockey team coach, Stan is a Father-Figure. Stan says to leakeamis victim team mates 'Win for Nelson'. Result is a boring 0-0 draw. Nelson in limbo. To improve team, Stan enlists genius Pee-Wee Canadian hockey player. Seems invincible. By starnge turn of events, Stan's Pee-Wee Team must play against Thugish, Ale-house hockey team of adults for The Cup when score is 2-2. Ale house Hockey team ruthlessly slaughter Pee-Wee team (involving severe grevious bodily harm and much blood) and win Fantastic Cup easily. Last scenes of 'I love you coach', 'I love you Dad' and so on with much hugging and emotional kissing. Stan hears 'I hate you coach' from toddler hockey player near death.
Final scene: Leaukemia child victim hears of terrible defeat of his hockey team. Says: ' No Hope' and slowly dies.
Bad taste, man!!!!
