Movie Review: Blades of Glory
space
Duchess of Doom   |  

Blades of GloryBeing a 13-year-old, I obviously thought that Blades of Glory was hilarious and very unpredictable, but the adults who sponsored my viewing of this movie assure me that my assessment is accurate.

This is an outrageous comedy about two rival Olympic male figure skaters who become — of all things — skating partners! In the beginning of the movie, it’s both of them skating and at the award ceremony, they end up having to share the Gold metal. Being enemies, the two men, Jimmy MacElory (Jon Heder) and Chazz Michael Michael (Will Ferrell), get into a fist fight and get banned from figure skating for life. Not realizing that they were only banned from skating in the division that they were in, the two men abandon their dreams.

Several years later, Jimmy’s creepy stalker (Nick Swardson, who played the brother who was afraid of the Sun in Benchwarmers), finds out that Jimmy is still eligible to skate in the pairs division. Soon after, Jimmy’s old coach (Craig T. Nelson) gets him back into the rink and unexpectedly teamed up with Chazz to compete in the figure skating pairs division.

After the old rivals paired up, I was kept on the edge of my seat because I couldn’t imagine what their skating routine would be like. It was funny to watch two men try to do the same moves that a man and women would do, but surprisingly, after a few performances, it actually looked pretty good.

Throughout the hearing and competition scenes, a bunch of former medal-winning skaters who I didn’t know “” except for Brian Boitano, who I totally know thanks to South Park “” appear as themselves and after their significance was explained to me, I got the jokes. (Hey, I did mention that I’m 13, didn’t I?)

While watching this movie, I couldn’t think of what crazy thing would happen next. If you want to laugh out loud, I recommend that you go to see Blades of Glory immediately.
