Reception

Score: A Hockey Musical Amazoncom Score A Hockey Musical Olivia NewtonJohn Noah Reid

Peter Howell of the Toronto Star gave Score: A Hockey Musical two and-a-half stars out of four saying: "Score isn’t deep and there’s no danger of it becoming a global phenomenon. But it’s as true a crowd-pleaser, one that doesn't require season tickets to the Maple Leafs to appreciate." Stephen Cole of the Globe and Mail gave the film three stars out of four, praising McGowan's direction of its genre saying: "McGowan's (Saint Ralph) wondrous achievement here is making a discarded genre seem like ready-made fun. He does so by creating a playful satire of musicals, while somehow - this is the hard part - capturing the charm that made song and dance movies so popular." Other reviews were less positive. Greig Dymond of CBC said the film is "marred by weak lyrics, even weaker melodies and a number of actors who probably shouldn’t be singing in public." Will Sloan of Exclaim! said the film "fails resoundingly on every level" and "that it was selected to open the Toronto International Film Festival is embarrassing."

Release

The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2010 as part of its Opening Night Gala. It was released in theatres in Canada on October 22.
