One more thing. I rented and watched Score A Hockey Musical for the first time today. I love funny Canadian films that don't take themselves seriously. I laughed a lot. I was entertained by it's kitschy homespun national playfulness! I was also surprised how good George was in the role of  Hockey Arena Announcer. He always seems to put himself down by declaring he is 'not an actor and can only play himself', but he ends up in a lot of Canadian films despite his modesty, and I am convinced he is improving as an actor and he can no longer claim he 'can't really act'. Well done!

Just my opinion.
