Blades of Glory (2007)

()

Comedy, Sport |

Blades of Glory is a American sports comedy film directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck and starring Will Ferrell and Jon Heder as a mismatched pair of banned figure skaters who become teammates upon discovering a loophole that will allow them to compete in the sport again.

The film’s story was conceived by Busy Philipps, who “fleshed out the screenplay”; co-writers Jeff and Craig Cox, however, dropped her name from the script. The film was produced by MTV Films, Red Hour, and Smart Entertainment and released on March 30, 2007, by Paramount Pictures.

At the 2002 World Winter Sport Games, rival men’s singles skaters Chazz Michael Michaels, a skillful skater but raunchy sex addict, and Jimmy MacElroy, an equally talented but sheltered and effeminate skater, tie for gold. From the start, the two skaters are clearly polar opposites with different backgrounds; Chazz grew up on the streets of Detroit and is a self-taught skater, while Jimmy was adopted by Darren MacElroy, a wealthy man who adopts children showing stupendous athletic ability. While standing on the awards podium after both skaters tying for gold, the two have an argument that escalates into a fight and ends with the World Games mascot being accidentally set on fire. As a result, the National Figure Skating Association strips both men of their medals and bans them from men’s singles competition for life. Darren immediately disowns Jimmy and leaves him stranded on the side of the road.
