Blades Of Glory
These first time directers & writers tackle the world of male figure skating with a cast of comic cold in John Heder (‘Napolean Dynamite’) and Will Ferrell (‘Talladega Nights’, ‘Old School’).

The pair play Macelroy and Chazz Michael Michaels respectively - rival skaters who get banned from the sport forever after an embarrassing, no-holds-barred fist fight at the World Championships.

Three years later they’ve found a loophole to allow them to compete. Putting their differences aside, they skate together in a pairs figure skating competition.

It's stupid and formulaic, but somehow it's also funny and surprisingly feelgood with plenty of entertaining skating routines (albeit CGI-assisted).
