Blades of Glory ripped me up

When I think Will Farrel, I do not think deep and moving. I do not think, "This will touch me and make me rethink how I see the world. Everything will be different in tiny, meaningful ways."

No, I think, "I am going to see this movie and laugh my pants off."

And really. They used the theme song for Flash Gordon in a non-ironic way. My God. (Well, I don't know, maybe it was irony.) And, like, you know, I love ice skating? And like I have been watching it since Dorothy Hammill in the 70s? And, like, there were about six GENUINE FAMOUS skaters in the movie (but not Tonya Harding, more's the shame)? And, like, I laughed so hard the entire theater could hear me?

Anyway, I'd say if you enjoyed The Wedding Crashers, you'll enjoy this - a bit crass, but really spectacularly over-the-top, and enough plot to get you through the non-comedy bits. I'm not going to tell you to see it if you don't think you're going to like it; I'm going to tell you that if you think you're going to like it, then you will love it.

In a word: fabulous (and good medicine for a down mood).
