Storyline

When rivalry between the world's best men's figure skaters - sex addicted, improvisational Chazz Michael Michaels and germophobic, precise Jimmy MacElroy - breaks into a fight on the awards platform, they're banned from the event for life. Three years later, desire for a gold medal and a careful reading of the rules lead them to compete as skating's first male-male pair. Can they overcome mutual dislike, limited time to prepare, their coach's secret past, and the dirty tricks of their main opponents, the Van Waldenberg siblings? The key to victory or defeat may lie in the attraction of the virginal Jimmy toward Katie, the Van Waldenbergs' little sister. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Funniest I've seen in years
12 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have not laughed so hard in at least ten years.

During the first routine that they were both in, I laughed till I thought I couldn't laugh any harder. Then, As soon as I started to relax, something even funnier happened. 5 straight minutes like that and I was almost on the floor.

Will Ferrel has been a favorite of mine for a long time and this movie takes the cake. Jon Heder made a perfect partner for him in this movie. The two played so well off of each other. they need to do more movies as a team.

As usual, Amy Poehler plays the perfect Evil Woman so perfectly and Will Arnett is such a natural in his character alongside her.

Jenna Fischer and the rest of the cast fill out a perfect collection for a very funny movie.

I don't regret one penny of the money spent to go and see this one and I plan on buying the DVD as soon as it is available.
