Set for release on March 30, 2007, Blades of Glory from Dreamworks is a sports comedy directed by Josh Gordon  and  Will  Speck  and Produced by Ben Stiller.

Will Ferrell and Jon Heder are the lead  "pair",  who  exploit  a loophole to do their act in this movie - which is to "Kick some Ice".

So, welcome  to  the world of competitive figure skating - and all its passion and power generated by an unlikely pair who aim to steal the trophy, beating the odds. Two men skating together -- Chazz Michael Michaels (Will Ferrell) and Jimmy MacElroy (Jon Heder) - become the first male pair in the history of figure skating!

As aintitcool.com states, 'figure skating for the first time ever is finally  watchable.  Also, hilarious.

Blades of Glory  is  about  two  rival  figure skaters (Ferrell and Heder) who after a fight with each other in front of 30,000  fans,  have  their  gold  medals stripped from them and are banned from competitive skating for a lifetime.'

Three years down the line, one is many pounds heavier while the other  is  still  girlish,  but still not "hot". Both agree to put aside their differences as well as their similarities - they're both men! --and exploit a loophole (created exclusively for the movie) that would allow  them  to  compete  in  the  pairs  figure skating category.

This category is, of course, usually reserved for opposite-sex couples and  this  duo  must  go face-to-face with fierce competition from rivals far more experienced at the art, such as Stranz (Will Arnett) and Fairchild (Amy Poehler), the unrelentingly competitive reigning champion pair.

'Amy Poehler and Will Arnett (as evil brother and sister figure skaters) manage to steal almost every scene they're in. There are some really great moments including a hilarious ice skate chase  and  some  very funny ice routines (that i won't spoil). The ice skating was never boring. And the costumes are as  funny  as  the people wearing them, especially the outfits given to Poehler and Arnett. Also, Jenna Fischer has never ever looked as hot as this. Purr-Rawrr.'

This very  funny  movie  was  shot  in  both  Los  Angeles,  California  and  Montreal,  Quebec (Canada).

DVD Review: The Simpsons Movie

Those yellow, animated phenomenons have finally made their way to the big screen and it only took eighteen years. So does the animated movie live up to the hilarity of the television show? Read on and find out - doh! The town of Springfield's lake is overly polluted and socially conscious Lisa Simpson (Yeardley Smith) rallies the town ... worth it for the film. I must knock it down a bit because it could've been a bigger set (and I suspect will be somewhere down the line).

Black Christmas movie review

This festive fright-fest was a nice surprise from what I was originally expecting. This is another horror remake (from the people behind Final Destination' - great film), but un-like so many others; it did manage to come up trumps; such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.' This is a remake of Bob Clarke's 1974 classic ... characters, for example, Kelli, played by Katie Cassidy is great; plus if you hated Dawn' in Buffy the vampire slayer' - you are gonna love this movie.
