Blades of Glory (2007, Josh Gordon & Will Speck)

"In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team."

Not much to write about this one as well. Its a one joke premise of homophobia jokes extended for an hour of a half. Jon Heder does his "gosh you are so nasty!" bit meanwhile Will Ferrel does his shtick once again of being an obnoxious fool. It still hasn't gotten old but it does lack that certain charm that Anchorman or Talladega Nights had.

What are supposed to be the main gags, their routines, also fall flat and are only funny if you think a man holding another man by the balls is hilarious every couple of minutes.

However, Will Arnett and Amy Phoeler steal the show, which is not a surprise, but they make the film worth watching.
