Storyline

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 Huggo

Goofs

In the championship game between the Long Bay and Butte rinks, Long Bay would not have had the last rock advantage in the final end as it is portrayed, as the rules have the last rock advantage going to the team that did not score in the most recent end in which a team did score. As such, Butte should have had last rock advantage in that final end. See more »

"Men With Brooms" a disgrace
7 February 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Recently, I had the misfortune of watching Paul Gross's MEN WITH BROOMS. If this abomination is the best that Mr. Gross can do as a director and a screenwriter, I suggest that he not give up his day job. The film is replete with gratuitous profanity, pubescent humour, contrived sub-plots, obnoxious characters, fatuous dialogue, and outrageous and unapologetic "steals" from other opuses of its sorry ilk.

Furthermore, the film does absolutely nothing to dispel the international belief that Canadians are nothing but a bunch of beer-guzzling imbeciles of the lowest order.

Mr. Gross should be ashamed of himself; indeed, Canadians who have anything good to say about this travesty should do some serious soul-searching.

Furthermore, as a Sudburian, I'm devastated that our town of Sudbury should have been used as the backdrop for this piece of rubbish.

Finally, the CBC should be castigated for its recent screening of this obscenity. When I think of all the wonderful community-theatre groups whose very survival could depend on a pittance of this film's cost, I am sick at heart. Does the CBC really think that its mandate to promote Canadian culture has been well-served by airing MEN WITH BROOMS? Probably.... Probably.
