Not great then but has enough about it to be an amusing spoof interview
As a fan of Arnett from his part in Arrested Development, I was looking forward to this short film that is a mock interview with them on the set of Blades of Glory, where they play sibling ice skaters. Mostly the result was good as the talented pair play off one another well. The material is funny when it is just slightly exaggerated with imagination and wit but there are moments where it does just fall flat because it goes to the point of being silly and thus falling way out of the target of being this interview on set. The best example was the description of Poehler urinating in the corners of the set to make her scent around, imaginative perhaps but too out-there and not in line with the rest of the material.
Like everything about Blades of Glory, it didn't have me rolling with laughter but it did consistently amuse me. I found Arnett funnier than Poehler but they were actually both very good and my preference was probably more to do with Arrested Development than anything else. Not great then but has enough about it to be an amusing addition to Blades of Glory.
