Comic ac­tor Will Fer­rell ( pic­tured) is not as con­sis­tent as he should be, but he scores big points in this spoof of the world of fig­ure skat­ing, which is es­sen­tially Tal­ladega Nights on ice. Skaters Chazz Michael Michaels ( Fer­rell) and Jimmy MacEl­roy ( Napoleon

Dy­na­mite’s Jon Heder) find a loop­hole af­ter be­ing banned from the sport that will al­low them to com­pete: if they can put aside their dif­fer­ences. Points go to Will Ar­nett and Amy Poehler as the boys’ ma­ni­a­cal neme­ses, while the hi­lar­i­ous skat­ing se­quences put Torvill and Dean’s fa­mous Bolero rou­tine to shame.
