Blades Of Glory
These first time directers & writers tackle the world of male figure skating with a cast of comic cold in John Heder (‘Napolean Dynamite’) and Will Ferrell (‘Talladega Nights’, ‘Old School’).

The pair play Macelroy and Chazz Michael Michaels respectively - rival skaters who get banned from the sport forever after an embarrassing, no-holds-barred fist fight at the World Championships.

Three years later they’ve found a loophole to allow them to compete. Putting their differences aside, they skate together in a pairs figure skating competition.

The triple axel of comedy...

The blissfully silly Blades of Glory is one of those rare comedies that puts a goofy smile on your face with the premise alone -- and keeps it planted there right until its wacky finale...

It's funnier than "Wild Hogs," which is about as ringing an endorsement as I'm capable of these days...

Obvious, crass and basic – in other words, another Ferrell winner...

And just occasionally, when the competition features the tackiest of hip-hop tributes, or a frozen tribute to JFK and Marilyn Monroe, Blades of Glory is brushed by something pretty close to comic genius... This may not win Ferrell any new fans, but the many he already has will come away very happy.

The crowd I saw it with were laughing like someone was pumping nitrous oxide through the air-con...

It's stupid and formulaic, but somehow it's also funny and surprisingly feelgood with plenty of entertaining skating routines (albeit CGI-assisted).

If you liked Zoolander and Anchorman, Blades of Glory will be your triple-axle treat, where the ice guys finish first...

Having tackled little league soccer in Kicking & Screaming, motor racing in Talladega Nights and basketball in the upcoming Semi-Pro, it's fair to say Ferrell isn't exactly stretched here. Nor does Heder stray far from the naive geek persona that has been his stock in trade since Napoleon Dynamite. Together, though, they strike enough sparks to earn a 5.8 for artistic interpretation and a 6.0 for effort...

Good, a comedy which doesn't try to be anything else. I was really getting tired of the moralistic-comedy, the action-comedy and the, lord forgive, horror-comedy. Two brilliant comedic actors keep up a great pace of endless laughs making Blades of Glory the first comedy I've seen that's been worth its entry price for some time.
