    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    The villains, an incestuous brother and sister played by real-life marrieds Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are a hoot. And "Office" honey Jenna Fischer is welcome as Jimmy’s love. show more

    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    You're under the thrall of a new peculiar couple. Both actors appear to be having fun outmaneuvering each other on the ice and onscreen. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Part of the problem lies in the casting imbalance: Ferrell is so much more adept at this comedy style than Heder. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Blissfully silly, triumphantly tasteless and improbably hilarious. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Dumb with a capital D, Blades of Glory takes its (almost) fleshed-out sketch-comedy idea as far as an ice-skating buddy movie with we're-not-gay jokes and a psycho stalker can go. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The casting of Ferrell and Heder turns out to be inspired. The direction, by a pair of NYU grads who've only made TV commercials and two short films, is pitch-perfect. And - miraculously - the skating sequences are passably realistic. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    The blissfully silly Blades of Glory is one of those rare comedies that puts a goofy smile on your face with the premise alone -- and keeps it planted there right until its wacky finale. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Fundamentally Blades of Glory works; it's full of laughs both subtle and ridiculous. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    The film is quick, painless, and more than a little brave: not since John Travolta, Jamie Lee Curtis, and the aerobicizers in "Perfect" has so much Lycra been so abused for our pleasure. show more

    Glenn Kenny Premiere

    It is trim, fast-moving and often quite funny, particularly in the exchanges between Ferrell and Heder -- the former's trademark clueless oafishness meshes nicely with the latter's alternating current of petulance and sweetness. show more

    Your friendly neighborhood web-slinger is back, only this time his sunny outlook has become emo. plot bad, but effects good. The villians were great also but why have the dancing. Movie is good.

    Spiderman is Awesome no doubt The movie seemed poorly acted at times. I didnt mind the various plots but the Sappiness was at times unbearable.The Parade scene could have been left out completely!!!Along with the sob story from Sandman at the end! If a fourth installment is in the works they should go back to thinking the way they did in 1

    This was the worst movie we have ever seen. Completely inappropriate for children of any age including 13 year olds. We walked out because it was getting so bad. Do any of the producers, director, or actors in this movie have any children of their own?

    this was far beyond PG-13. things PG13er's shouldn't see and sure as heck will get ideas. a trash film with a few laughs, but the computerized enhancement of the skating was great. save your money

    Sorry, but this movie has a lot of problems,; the main one is it is just not funny. Will's routine is the same thing we've seen before- far too often. It's time to give him a rest- his comedy has run its course. Hey Hollywood, how about somtehing/body new??

    Excellent performances by a well chosen cast of hard working and talented actors. Direction and editing very skillful. BTW, it seems that my review for "Blades of Glory" was magically transported to this message board, below. That may explain why reviews for restaurants have been popping up under some film titles.
