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

In the championship game between the Long Bay and Butte rinks, Long Bay would not have had the last rock advantage in the final end as it is portrayed, as the rules have the last rock advantage going to the team that did not score in the most recent end in which a team did score. As such, Butte should have had last rock advantage in that final end. See more »

There's not much I can say about this film that a true critic would. I can't tell you about the depth in characters or plot, or how unrealistic it might/might not be. I can tell you, though, I did enjoy watching this movie Saturday afternoon in my PJ's with my little sister. In the summer we kids really have nothing better to do sometimes than watch movies and go biking. Only Macy has a bike, so we stayed in one particular day. Roaming through or scalable-less TV stations we found a delightfully odd movie called "Men With Brooms". It was quirky, it was cute, it was all we needed to have a good few hours together. Okay,so it's not the greatest comedy ever written- it serves it's purpose of entertaining and that's all that matters to me. Watch it, enjoy it, don't examine it!
