Quite straight and lacking real value despite being quite interesting
I was quite taken aback by how many extra features there were on the DVD of Blades of Glory so, even though I didn't think the film was much more than amusing, I figured it would be rude not to check them out. I quite enjoyed the way that the "Making of" film didn't take itself too seriously so continued on though the features. Celebrities on Thin Ice is a lot "straighter" as a feature and just deals with the issue of getting the actors up to speed skating and performing as the script requires.
For something that lasts no more than five minutes it is interesting enough but there is not a lot of depth here. We get superficial comments about the difficulty of doing it but not much more than that. Meanwhile the digital and physical trickery utilised to make the action work as well as it did is alluded to more than actually discussed. Worth a glance if you liked the film but while the "making of" film pleased me by playing it for laughs, this is a lot straighter and less fun for it.
