Blades of Glory

Okay, so you may know I am not a huge Will Ferrell fan. Stranger Than Fiction went a long way to redeem Elf, Talladega Nights, and Anchorman.

I went into this one with low expectations and thus came away satisfied. Ferrell's cheesy flavor of comedy is tired and overdone but in the balance there are several sequences where we laughed so hard we almost blew out the fireplace.

The highlight: Pam from The Office. Jenna Fischer in a movie.

Not so much: Will Ferrell in an Ice Capades costume with puke on his face.

So if you paid to see it in the theater, my condolences. If you have it in your Netlfix drawer, go ahead and watch it. If not, don't go out of your way.

I told you! It's comic GOLD! Like the part during their first performance together when they skate at each other as fast as they can and then power slide, only to be halted by the ridiculous THWUMP of their crotches? Ahahahahahhahahahahaha!

More like comic bronze I'd say!
