Movie Review: Blades of Glory

April 15, 2007 at 11:43 am 5 comments

I didn’t want to like it.  I honestly did NOT want to enjoy the movie (it was the part of me who used to discuss our superior intellectual prowess with JL and Miller).  I typically like to WORK for my humor, to have it require above average intelligence (ie. Waiting for Guffman).  Typically I scoff at movies that even dumb people would enjoy

 Last night was an exception.  I went to see Blades of Glory and part of me didn’t want to laugh (The part of me that loves Metropolitan and Barcelona because lesser comedic minds “dont get it.”)  Last night I laughed my head off at the most sophomoric humor I have encountered since Zoolander.  I laughed like I was a 15-year old boy. 

This movie was ridiculous.  And ridiculously hilarious.  Some memorable quotes from the film:

-Chazz-“They laughed at Louis Armstrong when he said he was going to the moon, and now he’s laughing at them from up there. ”

-Chazz- “My victory in Boston was as sweet as the cream pie from the city it’s named after. ”

-Jimmy- “I’m not skating to anything with references to lady humps. I don’t even know what that means.”  Chazz-“No one knows what it means, but it’s provacative.”

Will Ferrell and Jon Heder (a fellow BYU Alum) made a great team that caters to a very base humor that some of us didn’t even know we had. 

3 1/2 Stars.

    Can’t wait to see it, the previews look hilarious.

    Now let’s all get revved up for the inaugural (and official) Miller Monday!
