Movie Review - Blades of Glory
There's not much to say about the latest Will Ferrel movie, Blades of Glory.
Was it funny? Mostly Yes.
Was it a typical Saturday Night Live-casted flick with predictable jokes and characters? Yes.
Did it have any unique parts to it that you haven't seen before? No. Well, other than the awkward moments created with two men ice skating together , but it's all predictable.
Is it a children's flick? Hell Freak'n No! I don't understand why the theater was filled with parents and kids. There's a million jokes and innuendos that are overtly sexual in nature. Why some parents took their 8 and 9 year olds, I have no idea. Probably another sign that the end is near. What's next, taking your kids to see Grindhouse?
On my 'Movies are like Alcohol' ratings scale, watching Blades of Glory was like drinking a Michelob Ultra. Light, predictable taste, and the alcohol does its job, yet it's still just a light beer.
