The first Goon did not have much exposure. It earned just over $4 Million at the box office. The reason for such low box office numbers is the film only opened in 19 theaters nationwide and the most theaters it was ever in at one time was a measly 23!
Goon has an 82% rating on . Like most people I did not see the first Goon in theaters. It was not until it was On Demand that I finally watched it and fell in love with it. I was shocked at how much I loved the film. The flow of the film and raunchy humor just kept the whole thing moving along and made the film very enjoyable to watch.
