Screener Squad: Red Penguins

Red Penguins Movie Review


After the collapse of the Soviet Union, their legendary Red Army hockey team was out of money, out of luck, and out of favor. Along comes the Pittsburgh Penguins to invest in the team and transition them from state property to capitalist success story. Things didn’t quite go the way they planned. Check out the review of Red Penguins, featuring Mindy, Santiago, and Lewayne, none of whom know anything about sports, to see whether “Red Penguins” is the next classic underdog sports story, or if your time is better spent in the penalty box.
