Preview – Blades of Glory

Blades of glory

John Heder and Will Ferrell star as champion ice skaters in this 2007 sports comedy directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck.

After an altercation at the award ceremony of the men’s singles ice skating event causes national embarassment, two american competitors have their gold medals stripped of them and their right to compete in the competition revoked. Disgraced and unable to compete, arch rivals Chazz Michaels (Ferrell) and Jimmy MacElroy (Heder) find themselves in an unlikely partnership in order to exploit a loop hole in their ban; they have to compete together as a duo – the only problem being, that they hate one another and got eachother banned in the first place. The pair must, however, put their differences aside and produce the performance of a lifetime if they are to stand a chance against antagonists Stranz (Will Arnett) and Fairchild (Amy Poehler) in their last attempt to achieve glory and win back the hearts of a nation.
