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

In the preliminary round game between the Long Bay and Butte rinks, the rock that Cutter throws that eventually gets burned by the sweeper travels down the right side of sheet as he throws it. The portal that he is aiming for and which the rock eventually goes through is on the left side of the sheet. See more »

Funny film with lots of heart
20 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

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.
