As a Canadian, this show was hilarious!
3 December 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This show is now a classic among my friends and family. The jokes are almost inside jokes to all of us Canadians. Its great how it plays on a lot of the usual stereotypes the world knows us for but has so many things that are only funny if you live here & thus actually GET IT! Even the Canadian product placements were meant to be funny. It was great to see so many familiar faces from the vast amount of Canadian talent there is out there. This movie is like the hilarious TV show Corner Gas in all its great Canadiana. I'm sure if you're not Canadian you just won't get it. The curling is awesome. I love how they have actual known curlers playing mixed with people known for things here other than curling. When you live here curling gets under your skin. It IS an exciting game. Something as minute as a hair on the ice can change the whole game. I love how this movie captured its ups and downs. Some of the camera shots for the curling games were really creative. Overall I'd have to say that this is one of the best and funniest Canadian movies ever made!
