Chazz Michael Michaels and Jimmy MacElroy are the world’s top skaters. Chazz is a sex-crazed rebel on ice while Jimmy is a finely tuned athlete with a heart of gold. But when the bitter rivals get into a fight at the olympic games, they are both banned from the sport for life. Years later, Jimmy and Chazz have hit rock bottom. Things change, though, when a fan discovers a loophole in the skating rulebook – Jimmy and Chazz can still compete in pairs skating. Any time either Will Ferrell or Jon Heder is put in an embarrassing situation, you know there’s going to be laughs. Fortunately, the world of figure skating offers up plenty of opportunities to put them in just such a situation. From the outrageous costumes to the melodramatic routines to the absurd competitiveness, there’s a lot to laugh at. And when the two attempt to perform the “iron lotus” stunt, BLADES OF GLORY outdoes itself. (Scott Chitwood)
