When a much-publicized ice-skating scandal strips them of their gold medals, two world-class athletes skirt their way back onto the ice via a loophole that allows them to compete together -- as a pairs team.
When it comes to comedies, there are some pretty simple subjects you can tackle that are ordinary - but to break out from that mold is tough. Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it does not, but you have to take your shot; you never know until you try. Will Speck and Josh Gordon tackle a tough subject, with ice skating, however they nail it. The casting in this movie mixes some old school and new school characters, but it ends up working out into a comedic gold mine. Jon Heder and Will Ferrell make a great tag team as Jimmy MacElroy and Chazz Michael Michaels, respectively. Some of the interactions that these two veterans have leave the viewers rolling on the floor with laughter. What makes this movie work so well, is the direction that the directors take. They go from "norm" of pairs figure skating being male and female to two males. Overall, very funny movie with lots of laughs, definitely worth it to check this flick out!!
