Blades of Glory (Gordon, Speck, 2007)

It’s somewhat refreshing this Will Ferrell/Jon Heder comedy blatantly plays up the obvious bits of comedy in setting up a male/male figure skating team. The dumb jokes work in part because both stars pull off a sense of humility by films end, an theme less prominent in Ferrell’s Taladega Nights or Achnorman. Not by any means a great film, but surprisingly sincere, and hilarious at times.
