3.0 out of 5 stars No Brush Off here. 15 Jan 2005
Format:DVD
As a big fan of Paul gross and Due South, I picked this video up on the offchance that it would keep me occupied until that excellent series comes out on UK DVD.
The story is of a disbanded Curling team who are brought back together by the death of their mentor for one last run at a highly coveted trophy.
The tale features the usual problems you'd expect of a film like this, problems with the team being out of practice, personal issues getting in the way and old frictions, notably from romantic partners or old acquantances.
The film has numerous deft comic touches, as well as some solid laugh-out-loud moments and stands up well alongside other 'fringe sport comedies' like 'Dodgeball' (MWB is less coarse, and less laugh out loud, but the characters and setting are more engaging).
Well worth a look, Gross directs this well and whilst it can lull a little in places, it's all good stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really enjoyable outing on the ice 10 Mar 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Popular spectator sports bore me. Why would I want to sit around, watching a bunch of obscenely overpaid muscular guys (often in shorts or very tight trousers) run around after a ball? Ick. MOVIES about popular spectator sports are even worse: self-indulgent, two-hour gooey moments of the writers and directors and actors professing their love for watching a bunch of obscenely overpaid muscular guys (often in shorts or very tight trousers) run around after a ball. Double Ick.

No, it's the less-well-publicised niche sports that I find more interesting, and MOVIES about these niche sports are even better, because you get all the rules and most of the subtleties explained to you as they happen in the movie, so you know exactly what's going on and what's at stake. Which is great, especially if you've never actually watched the sport before. You simply can't do the same thing with baseball's Designated Hitter Rule or football's Offside Rule in a film. It's impossible. And boring.

I've seen "A League of Their Own," "BASEketball," "Dodgeball," and "Blackball," and I've enjoyed them all. When Amazon recommended "Men with Brooms" after I made several "Due South"-oriented purchases, I went for it. And I love this film. It's got Paul Gross and Leslie Nielsen in it, which is enough for most people. But it's also about a cozy sport passionately enjoyed by real enthusiasts rather than cynical business-sportsmen who would transfer to another team at the drop of an extra million. And the rest of the cast are just as great, many of whom you will have seen in other venues as well. For example, fans of the X-Men (both the Marvel film and the 1990s cartoon) should recognise George "Beast" Buza and his gravelly voice, playing a vicious criminal.

Being a big curling fan, I had to see this movie the day it came out, and I was not disappointed. I thought the swearing was a bit crude on the first viewing, but when I watched it a second time it didn't bother me. You don't have to be very knowledgable about curling to enjoy the movie, and I don't think you have to be Canadian to understand the humour, but a few of the little in-jokes might be lost... like the "Hinterland Who's Who" segment playing on the TV in the bar. ;)
Best moments:
Peter Outerbridge shines as James Lennox. The humour is great and quirky, and the friendship between the characters is nice. This is one of the best Leslie Nielson roles I've seen in a long time, where he got the chance to be funny, but wasn't slapstick to the point of being utterly stupid. Besides, you have to love a movie with a cameo by The Tragically Hip.
Downfalls:
It's a bit rough around the edges at times, and I still don't see the point of Michelle Nolden's character (Julie Foley, the astronaut) at all.
Overall, it's worth watching, and the soundtrack is great.

2.0 out of 5 stars don't bother! 31 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
As an admirer of several of the actors and off the wall comedy, I can only say this is really disappointing. It was slow and laughs of any kind were thinly spread - the makers should have made their minds up whether to create a comedy with really black humour and or slapstick - this falls down the hole somewhere. It's a shame,as the cast and the story had the potential - but there you go, you can't win them all!

Utter crap, Bought this as I thought with Leslie Neilsen it must be funny and also I like watching curling. The story line is virtually non existent and the curling action is at best amatuerish. I dont think I managed to raise one snigger.

3.0 out of 5 stars DVD reveiw 9 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The package arrived in good time.
The storyline was a bit thin and hard going at times but because it had one or two high profile characters in the film we stuck with it but I could have easily turned it off half way through.

4.0 out of 5 stars Men With Brooms DVD 30 Aug 2012
By Shepo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure if this would be any good but I was quite surprised that it was. There are some really funny moments in it and it manages to hold your attention from the start to the end with ease. The story follows a group of friends who reunite and enter the local curling tournament to try and win the Golden Broom as it was the last wish of their deceased coach (whose ashes are placed in one of the curling weights). After a humiliating defeat they realise that they are out of shape and seek the help of a retired curling champion (Leslie Nielsen) to whip them back into shape. All the characters go on their own little emotional journeys throughout the film from love and family to cheating and alcoholism. It arrived within the estimated delivery date. All in all 4/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this film...
Ok, so it's a formula that's been used before and you know how it's going to end, but that's beside the point. It allows you to get to know the characters better. Read more
