National Lampoon's Pucked Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Credit cards and women on skates prove to be a dangerous mixture in this comedy. Frank Hopper ([[Performer~P7184~Jon Bon Jovi~jonbonjovi]]) is a former lawyer whose career has hit the skids, and he currently lives off the largesse of his more successful sister, Leona ([[Performer~P20629~Nora Dunn~noradunn]]). Frank has dozens of business ideas, but has no way to finance them, until he heads out with his friend Carl ([[Performer~P22867~David Faustino~davidfaustino]]) one evening and fills out a questionnaire in which he jokingly states his income is a million dollars a year. Suddenly Frank's mailbox is flooded with pre-approved credit cards, and with his new line of credit, Frank launches his dream project -- a women's hockey league. But it seems that the world is not yet ready for women playing professional ice hockey, and before long Frank is 300,000 dollars in debt, with a handful of credit agencies taking him to court to get back the money he's spent so far. Frank turns to his former girlfriend Jessica ([[Performer~P285095~Estella Warren~estellawarren]]), now a successful lawyer, to help him stay out of jail, but it seems their work is cut out for them when they learn Jessica's very competitive former beau Norman ([[Performer~P21754~Cary Elwes~caryelwes]]) is prosecuting Frank's case. National Lampoon's Pucked was directed by [[Performer~P94401~Arthur Hiller~arthurhiller]]; it was his first directorial project since 1997's [[Feature~V158753~An Alan Smithee Film: Burn, Hollywood, Burn~burnhollywoodburn]], for which [[Performer~P94401~Hiller~arthurhiller]] opted not to take credit. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
