OK its no dodgeball, but for an ex-pat stranded in the U.S. the movie is funny. While I've never seen the new Dukes of Hazard movie I would imagine the humour is along the same lines in that, it makes fun of stereotypes of a particular culture. Perhaps like bollywood movies the humour (Canadian spelling) doesn't translate all that well. I mean the close up of the lead actor yelling "sweeeep" is only funny if you've actually seen televised curling. The fact that it's a movie about curling is funny unto itself. Anyway, if you're Canadian and living in Canada this movie is probably only slightly entertaining, if you're American you'll probably missing half the jokes, but if you're Canadian living in the U.S. its well worth the watch. Oh ya i've never seen so many beavers in one movie and the Tragically Hip as the curling team from Kingston is a great touch.
