superb.........By williamsgwynfa (627 reviews) from gwaenysgor , 29 Mar 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Blades of Glory is about two rival figure skaters who after a fight with each other in front of 30,000 fans, and after destroying the world championship mascot, have their gold medals stripped from them, and are banned from competitive skating for a lifetime.
Three years later, one is many pounds heavier, whilst the other is still very girly.
Both agree to put aside their differences, as well as the fact that they are both men, and exploit a loophole ( which as far as i know can not be done in the real world of pairs skating), that would allow them to compete in the pairs figure skating category.
this duo must go face-to-face with fierce competition, from rivals far more experienced at the art, such as Stranz and Fairchild, the unrelentingly competitive reigning champion pair.
There are some really great moments, including a hilarious ice skate chase and some very funny ice routines.
This very funny movie was shot in Los Angeles and Montreal in Quebec (Canada).
well worth renting out.

Not much glory.....By Gremlin037 (43 reviews) from Orpington , 30 Mar 2010I won't tell you it doesn't have funny moments, but they are few and far between, you can see them coming and above all, you feel that you've seen them a hundred times before.
blades of gloryBy totti (4 reviews) from essex england , 24 Mar 2010very funny film I loved it, it was well thought out and very good Will Ferrell was very good. Would watch again.
Disappointing at best I'm afraidBy BarnsleyFan (10 reviews) from Newmarket, Suffolk , 08 Mar 2010I love Will Farrell's sense of humour, and his delivery is always enjoyable, but I really felt that this fell short of his best - it doesn't compare well to Anchorman or Step-Brothers.
Don't get me wrong, this movie isn't a complete wash out - there are laughs in there - but they're just not as forth coming as you usually get from Farrell's vehicles.
A lot of the jokes are obviously going to work on the fact that two guys are skating together and one has to be 'the girl'.
There's the goodies and baddies theme - and this affords laughs too. It's light-hearted and never serious. The villains are comic villains and it's all pantomime - particularly on the ice.
It good enough to pass an evening, but if you haven't seen Anchorman, or Step-Brothers, rent those first.
A sl-ICE of comedyBy Sezzle (49 reviews) from Worcester , 28 Feb 2010Even if you don't normally think much of Will Ferrell this movie is a must-see. Despite much of the comedy being painfully old hat, the skating scenes, of which there are many, make this impossible to ignore. And the bonus features show you a lot of the skating was actually done by the actors. I laughed my socks off, and finished up wanting to learn to skate.
