Product Overview

Blades of Glory is pure hilarity, a gold medal comedy winner staring comic superstar Will Ferrell (Talladega Nights) and Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite). Bitter figure skating rivals Chazz Michael Michaels (Ferrell) and Jimmy MacElroy (Heder) brawl after tying for the gold medal at the world championships. Banned for life from men's competition, these archrivals beat the system thanks to a loophole that allows them skate again--in pairs competition!

Review Somewhere along the line, it was theorized that Will Ferrell as an athlete is inherently funny. Fortunately for Blades of Glory, which continues the sports farce oeuvre he began with Kicking and Screaming and Talladega Nights (and will extend with the upcoming Semi-Pro), that assumption appears to be correct...For his part, Ferrell is pretty much on autopilot, which is no obstacle to the funny. Ferrell's phoned in performances pack more laughs than most comedians' labored efforts...No one in the film, in fact, is really trying out anything new. Screenwriters Jeff and Craig Cox have the Dodgeball formula down while directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck cultivate the silly atmosphere that make any number of Ferrell's vehicles click. It may seem like faint praise to deem Blades of Glory par for the course, but when the par is that funny, it's no mean feat.

Review Who would have thought that The Cutting Edge, the 1992 romantic drama starring Moira Kelly and D.B. Sweeney as bickering would-be Olympic figure skaters could ever provide a template for a Will Ferrell comedy? And yet it is all there in the spectacularly silly laugh riot Blades of Glory...Talk about your miracles on ice. Somehow the screenwriters have taken a drippy love story and utterly transformed it...[Ferrell and Heder] are superb physical comedians who don't mind looking foolish. That lack of self-consciousness is an ace in the hole, building laugh upon laugh...Sure, no one is going to remember Blades of Glory come Oscar time, but it's not that type of movie. But as a piece of popcorn entertainment, it really is cutting edge. If there was an Olympics for purely fun movies, this would skate away with one of those pretty medals.

Quotes
Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal Blissfully silly, triumphantly tasteless and improbably hilarious.
John Anderson, Variety ...the triple axel of comedy.
Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter ...puts a goofy smile on your face with the premise alone -- and keeps it planted there right until its wacky finale.
