MOVIE: Blades Of Glory

ELEVEN, 8.30pm, (2007)

The Daily Examiner - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

Comic ac­tor Will Fer­rell is not nearly as con­sis­tent as he should be (for ev­ery Old School, there’s been a

Be­witched), but he scores big points in this hi­lar­i­ous spoof of the se­quined world of fig­ure skat­ing. 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 Bolero rou­tine to shame.
