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.

Genial, intermittently amusing comedy about curling. I never knew what curling was, and it's sort of an interesting shuffleboard/billiards kind of game and I'm glad to have learned something about it, but outside of that this movie is so slight that in spite of it's easygoing charm I never felt more than a passing interest in the character's lives. Watchable but forgettable.
