Blades of Glory is the story of Chazz Michael Michaels (Ferrel) and Jimmy MacElroy (Heder), two rival ice skaters banned from competition after a podium brawl at an "Olympic" event. After Jimmy's stalker finds a loophole in the rulebook (yes, you read that right), the pair join forces to reclaim their rightful position at the top of the skating rankings.

While it follows the predictable rise, fall, and rise again pattern of most comedies, Blades of Glory is different enough to be memorable. The costumes are ridiculous, the set-pieces are brilliant , and the performances, what these films hinge on, are excellent.

Overall, Blades of Glory is hilarious. Pretty much every aspect of it is fantastically overblown, and it keeps you laughing quite steadily for its 90-minute running time.

The film is great - funny, silly and over-the-top. The Blu-ray is better than the DVD. One problem (hence 4 stars) is that the Blu-ray really exposes the face replacement CGI on some of the skating sequences. It's not the end of the world but it does jar. Admittedly you could see the CGI on the DVD version but with the added resolution and detail here, it is quite noticeable. However this is more than made up for by the super sharp titles during the skating intros and by the extra rich and deep colours on the crazy costumes. Very highly recommended! Oh... and some of the extras - seemingly the same ones as the DVD release - are nice in HD!

If you're looking for Ingmar Bergman, this won't be the film for you!

This is a film to put on when your mates are round after the pub has closed and you all want a good laugh - the storyline is linear, the characterisations large and brash. All the better for it too.

It reminds me of Rob Reiner at times, in the way that the director cuts to interviews with the main protagonists and presents scenes through the form of television shows. But this writer and director are new generation Rob Reiners - ones who have spent too much sniffing the gluepot to be accorded the reputation that their more serious forerunners received? Maybe so.

There is absolutely no reason why I should like this movie. It's jockstrap humour at its most extreme; there is no real story to follow, the characters are utterly two-dimensional, the staging is brittle and yet- and yet- I have seen this three times now, and my stupid laughter throughout elicited tuts and raised eyebrows from the 397 people on the plane who hadn't seen it. The rest just smirked. Because, in spite of it all, this is pretty close to comic genius: for a first go round for both directors and screenplay writers, it is a phenomenon. There is no reason in the world for you to enjoy this movie, but I strongly suspect you will. Highly, highly recommended.
