Trivia

Will Ferrell's Lars maintains throughout the film that he doesn't believe in elves. This is a subtle piece of irony as he played a man raised by elves in the 2003 film Elf. See more »

Goofs

It has been suggested that the UK would have had to have won the previous year's contest to be hosting in Edinburgh - that's not entirely true - Edinburgh hosted the Eurovision in 1972, UK hadn't won the year before, the honors went to Monaco in 1971, but they didn't have a venue big enough so the UK stepped in, this may have happened in the film backstory but isn't developed.

"Blades of Glory" meets "Pitch Perfect"
27 June 2020 | by alex-16879See all my reviews

Full of laughs, love, music, and happiness; this is a wonderfully entertaining movie! With Rom-Com styling, the movie is a ton of fun. It's an enjoyable satire, drawing awareness to a production that most North Americans are unfamiliar with. If you're like me, it may even bring a tear to your eye! Based on the lesser reviews, I guess some people expected an experience similar to "Schindler's list." This isn't that, nor is it trying to be. For those who simply want to kill two hours, this is definitely worth your time. Great job, Netflix!
