Has any out-of-shape actor gotten more career mileage by showing off his out-of-shape body than Will Ferrell? He's like the Harvey Keitel and Dennis Franz of comedy. He must be stopped.
What? A tasteful production photo that doesn't show the guy in a leotard? Yes, and you're welcome. I saw a sneak preview of Blades of Glory, and I laughed (hard) against my better judgment. When quarrelsome men's figure skaters Chazz Michael Michaels (Ferrell) and Jimmy MacElroy (Jon Heder) are banned from further singles competition, they began their steady fade into anonymity. Then someone discovers a loophole in the rulebook that allows them to continue skating as a pairs team, and the awkward fun begins.
Meanwhile, the darlings of the pairs competition (twin siblings played by married couple Will Arnett and Amy Poehler -- yuck) try to sabotage their new rivals by doing everything but bribing the judges. They enlist their not-famous sister (Jenna Fischer) to spy on training sessions and have the guys quarrel over her.
Consider this a bookend to Zoolander, as the divadom of male modeling is now applied to men's figure skating. The action in the film is fairly impressive, and with good reason: Jamie Sale and David Pelletier were listed among the stunt skaters. And, as you can tell from the ambiguous logo in the photo above, the movie was very careful not to use the word "Olympics" or anything else that directly related to the Olympics.
As a side note, anyone who's ever wanted to see Jenna Fischer wear more revealing clothing than she does on The Office has a very good reason to go. (I have to start watching that show now.)
