Hello, internet people.
I don’t know why i haven’t reviewed this movie yet, since it is one of my favourites and i have seen it at least 5 times.
Blades of Glory is about two rival figure skaters- Jimmy MacElroy (Jon Heder) and Chazz Michael Michaels (Will Ferrel)- who, at the World Winter Sport Games, tie for Gold. At the podium, an argument breaks out, leading to a fight and the two men get banned for life from Men’s single competition.
3 and a half years later, Jimmy’s ultimate fan (and obsessive stalker) informs him that he can infact skate again, but in pairs. With this news, Jimmy contacts his old coach, who doesn’t believe it will work, but when he sees a video of Chazz and Jimmy fighting, yet again, he pairs the two together to compete as the first ever same gender pairs team.
As i said, i love this film so much, because it’s full of fun, it’s hilarious and absolutely brilliant. It’s one of those films where you can watch it over and over again without getting tired of it. If you’re feeling a bit sceptical of this movie, my friend wasn’t sure about it before they watched it, and by the end they seemed to really enjoy it, so i strongly advise you to watch this one if you haven’t yet.
