Did You Know?

Cameo: [Clarence W. "Shorty" Jenkins]The most famous curling icemaker of all time appears (wearing his trademark pink cowboy hat) in a non-speaking cameo role as the icemaker that prepares ("pebbles") the ice before the final competition.See more »
Factual errors: 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 »
James Lennox:This is not my problem. This is most definitely your problem.
Eddie Strombeck:His problem?
James Lennox:Sure. Hey man, all I did was cut his bulk mescaline for street sale and neglect to pay him. Chris, on the other hand, crushed his head with a curling rock.

Funny film with lots of heart, 20 February 2010
Author: l_brennan1979 from United States

This was one of those movies that I caught on cable at like one in the morning. But to my surprise I actually loved it. It was very funny and very sweet. Paul Gross and Leslie Neilsen always play so well off each other, much like they did in Due South. The supporting cast, with the exception of Molly Parker, were really funny as well. She whined her way through the role. The script was filled with great one liners and amazing heart. The acting, particularly by the 3 leads, was good for the most part. They all seemed very comfortable with each other and you believed they were friends. Scenes like the beaver road block and Peter Outerbridge's sex scene with the biker made me laugh so hard. My family is from the Newfoundland area of Canada and to be honest I saw a lot of them in this movie. To those who have said this movie was awful and told others not to watch it, I disagree. If you are looking for a movie to make you laugh and has a lot of heart, I recommend this one.
