Blades of Glory


Two of American figure skatingā€™s brightest stars, Chazz Michael Michaels (Will Ferrell) and Jimmy MacElroy (Jon Heder), are banned for life after a violent fight on the ice, but a coach (Craig T. Nelson) sees a future for them as the first all-male pair. A comedy in the vein of Dodgeball (2004). Ferrell is in good form as figure skatingā€™s bad boy who has to partner up with his mortal enemy. Napoleon Dynamiteā€™s Heder is OK in an Owen Wilson-type part, but Will Arnett and Amy Poehler (married in real life) are funnier as evil siblings. Itā€™s all very simple-minded, but an amusing take on an occasionally bizarre sport.Ā 

2007-U.S. 93 min. Color. Directed byĀ Will Speck, Josh Gordon. Cast: Will Ferrell (Chazz Michael Michaels), Jon Heder (Jimmy MacElroy), Will Arnett (Stranz van Waldenberg), Amy Poehler, William Fichtner, Jenna Fischer… Craig T. Nelson, Andy Richter. Cameo: Luke Wilson.

Trivia: Co-produced by Ben Stiller who was allegedly considered for the part of Chazz. Several figure skating stars appear as themselves, including Nancy Kerrigan.Ā
