Long Bay resident Donald Foley, a life long curler and more recent curling coach, has just passed away. He has requested that his cremated ashes be bored into a specific curling stone he has just had retrieved from the bottom of Long Bay. His will also has a non-binding codicil to reunite the last team he coached to curl in the Golden Broom Bonspiel in town, a Long Bay team which has never won and that team which was the closest ever to doing so. Donald wants that specific stone in which he is buried to be delivered as the final shot to sit on the button for the win for the Long Bay team. Beyond the four team members not having curled at all since their last bonspiel ten years ago, they each have issues in their lives which may make coming together as a team and winning, and curling in its entirety difficult or a non-priority. Lead Neil Bucyk's life is directed by his controlling wife Linda, a right she believes she has as his livelihood is in her family's business, a funeral home. ... Written by

Throughout many of the games you will see that there are many rocks left in the house. The true way of counting score in curling is whoever has the closet rock to the button gets 1 point, then for every other rock that is closer gets another point until an opponent's rock is closer then any more in the house. During many of the games some houses were left with up to 5 rocks in the house with no opposing rocks. The scores should have been much higher in all the games, most notably in the final game.

[at her Alcoholics Anonymous meeting]
The point is lately, I've been feeling like I need a "touch me up" cause I just don't know which way to turn.
Slimy guy at meeting:
Hey, you can turn to me anytime you want.
Thank you. That's sweet but I'd rather shit in my mouth.

At the end: No Beavers were harmed in the making of this film...Honest! See more »
yawn.sorry about that.i was just thinking about this movie.i didn't find it funny at all.not even amusing.i did however,find it slow and boring.the acting is fine.but for me,the jokes fell flat.i also thought there was to much vulgarity for the sake of vulgarity.by that,i mean the language.i don't mind foul language if it has something to do with the movie.but in this case,characters just seemed to swear for no reason.With Paul Gross(who also directed)and Leslie Neilson on board,you'd think there would be more than a few laughs.as a straight drama it probably work.but that's not what i was expecting.my vote for Men With Brooms:4/10
