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

Trivia

The line "It's not the size of the army, it's the fury of the onslaught" was originally used in another Paul Gross production - Due South: Asylum (1997). 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

James Lennox: "On this planet we call home?"
Chris Cutter: Hey, whatever.

Slight comedy
16 January 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
