Trivia

The Tragically Hip, one of Canada's most popular rock bands, appear in this film as team Kingston. All five members hail from Kingston, and four still reside there permanently. See more »

Goofs

Paul Cutter's moral dilemma as a cheater is entirely contrary to the rules of curling. Canadian and world curling rules require players to call their own infractions. In the situations depicted in the film, "burning" a moving stone is an infraction by the sweepers, not the player delivering the stone. It's the responsibility of the front end, never up to Cutter, to call the burned stones. See more »

Quotes

Chris Cutter: For ten years, I've drilled for oil in 93 coutnries, five different continents, and not once have I done anything to equal the grace of a well thrown rock sliding down a sheet. Not once.

This was an OK comedy, with realistic characters
6 May 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

OK, so this was not exactly high art. But let's be realistic, it is a movie with Paul Gross and Leslie Nielson in it. I was not expecting the English patient.... What was here was a good little comedy movie that poked fun at a lot of Canadian idiosyncrasies, had realistic characters and had a bit of fun with a known Canadian (and international) sport. It was nice that most of the characters had some sort of flaw, but still managed to sort things out and overcome. Better yet, it was nice to see Leslie Nielson actually act in a movie with a character who had depth instead of his normal two dimensional slapstick characters. Mostly, I enjoyed this movie because it was not a complete cast of perfect people, and it did have fun with a lot of Canadian stereotypes. It is always good when we can laugh at ourselves. Like I said, not high art but that was not what we were looking for.
