When rival figure skaters Chazz Michael Michaels (Ferrell) and Jimmy MacElroy (Heder) go ballistic in an embarrassing, no-holds-barred fight at the World Championships, they are stripped of their gold medals and banned from the sport for life. Now, three-and-a-half years on, they've found a loophole that will allow them to compete: if they can put aside their differences, they can skate together -- in pairs' figure skating.

There aren't as many laughs as Anchorman but the laughs in this one are just hilarious. Will Ferrell's face during the most unmaly duet figure skating moves drove me to tears of laughter. I know it's essentially a repeat of his other films but I can't deny that I was laughing quite hard and I enjoyed it.

Mildly amusing, but overall as mediocre as you'd expect it to be. It's mostly the same couple of jokes dragged out for the whole movie and the parts with the most potential are cut short.

Blades of Glory is very funny, and totally ridiculous. The thing is, I don't think it would have the same, laughter-filled effect on me if I had not seen it for free. I might have regretted it more if money had been spent. Pretty good!

A bit more enjoyable than Ferrell's "Talladega Nights" and inching its way close to the likes of "Anchorman." The comic-superstar steals every scene from Heder and maintains the goofiness just enough to keep us interested. I can't say this particular character he's now played several variations on isn't wearing thin, however. He's done all he can do here, and needs to find an original character that still fits his humor, but I'm fine giving him one last round.

An extremely generic Will Ferrell comedy, with pretty much every actor (Ferrell, Heder, Poehler, Arnett, Fischer, and Nelson) all playing the exact same archetypes they've carved for themselves in other films and TV shows. But they're all good performers, and while this may not be a great film, it passed the time and I had a few laughs.

The majority of this movie I just didn't find funny. Heder wasn't anything special, and the bad guys (Arnett and Poehler) really didn't do anything to make me laugh either. The only bright part I found in this movie was a scene early on where Will Ferrell is skating in some childrens show dressed as a wizard with a huge costumed head on him. That had me laughing. It was nice to see that Coach is still getting work too.

It's a bit hit or miss, but has enough to keep you chuckling or flat out laughing. It's weird that I hated Napolean dynamite but I haven't minded Heder in everything else I've seen him in. This is classic Ferrell to. You know what to expect going in to a film like this

This movie is all Ferrell, and since he can't carry a movie by himself, it sucks. The entire movie is a vehicle for about 15 jokes and those jokes really aren't that funny. Humorous to be sure but hardly worth sitting through 20 minutes of anything, much less the run time of this film.

I don't like Ferrell's other "take a profession in the public eye and turn it into an absurd comedy" movies, nor do I really think that Will Ferrell is funny, but this movie surprised me, Will Ferrell was actually pretty funny. The problem is that almost all of the other characters are lame and extremely boring, not to mention that I'm tired of the extremely unnecessary romantic interests in comedies. All this movie has going for it is the one funny character.

It's formulaic and predictable, but of course everyone in the audience knows this so it's not very obtrusive to one's enjoyment of the film. It's not consistently funny, some of the gags fall flat and a lot of the humor is based on watching the leads performing silly routines in effeminate outfits. There are, however, enough big laughs, and I think this is closer in spirit to Anchorman (which I liked a lot) than Talladega nights (which I didn't).

The guys this movie refers to, Alexei Yagudin and Yevgeny Pluschenko, really did have a weird rivalry. The superficial, square world of figure skating is ripe for comedy and they made a good use of it. Especially the "figures" in figure skating parts was funny. It is not great but definitely was worth my time during a flight.

Will Ferrell attempts to do to figure skating what "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby"(2006) did for NASCAR. Unfortunately, for Ferrell fans "Blades of Glory" doesn't exactly stick the landing. Still contains a solid amount of laughs, but nothing more than average overall.

Disappointing and pedestrian. I'm not sure what I expected but Will Ferrell needs to remember that he's at his best when he's either playing it straight (Stranger than Fiction) or teamed up with Apatow and company (Talladega Nights). Otherwise, he's wasted.

Oh, so bad. In a movie built around Will Ferrell and Jon Heder, they are outshone by 100 times by Will Arnett and Amy Poehler. You'd think they could at least write the main characters to be as strong as the 2nd tier characters, but alas, the comedic cream rises to the top and subverts any hope of people giving a shit about the leads.

Weak and labored in parts, but mercifully short. Ferrell is of course very funny, but I don't think Heder adds much here (oh, for a young Martin Short!). Poehler and Arnett, on the other hand, make excellent comic villains.

Only a few days passed and I already couldn't remember if I liked or disliked the film. Quickly clickplaying trough it refreshed my memory. The cast is just great. Now it's not a movie I'd watch again on my own I as you might guess from how fast it's details clear from memory, but I def would re-watch it with a friend who likes comedy but hasn't seen it yet, there are some good laughs to be shared there.

I've always thought that Will Ferrel was the only good thing to come out of SNL in the past 10 years. I loved him because I knew that he would be willing to do anything, in any scene. This is by far his best movie to date. This movie is full of huge laughs, and most of the dialog will at least make you chuckle. This is way WAY better than Talldega Nights, which I thought was a steaming pile of horse shit.

Decently funny. It's the same type of humor in all the other Ferrell movies but it doesn't really match the humor of Anchorman and Talladega Nights. This has more to do with Jon Heder than anything else. In his other movies he has a great supporting cast that can match him in humor. While he has Poehler and Arnett alongside him, the rest of the cast is either underused or mediocre. A few hilarious bits make it worth a watch, but it's better as a rental.

It's not very memorable, but this movie made me laugh a lot more than I thought it would. Ferrell's extended on-ice dance sequences are hilarious, and he has a few zinger lines as well. Craig T. Nelson as "Coach" is brilliant stunt casting, but the movie gives us a great team of villains (Poehler and Arnett, real-life husband & wife) and does next to nothing with them. Heder is tolerable, and Fitchner is a scene-stealer. Decent fun, but the 'Ferrell plus Sport = Comedy' formula is getting tired.
