In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
Chazz (Will Ferrell) and Jimmy (Jon Heder) are two of the worlds best male solo ice skaters. One year at the Olympics they tie for first place, but due to their dislike of eachother end up fighting and being banned from the Olympics. Nearly four years later they discover a loophole that says that they can enter the Olympics again, this time as a team - if they can stop fighting that is.
This isn't too bad of a movie, there are a couple of bits which make me go ugh, as the bits are meant to be funny in how the moment is portrayed as being awkward, but it's just too awkward and a bit over the top so it simply had me wanting those bits to be over and done with.
There are some fun moments, I did enjoy both the solo ice-skating 'dances' and loved the duet. It's not a great movie by any standards, but it is a fun movie. Could have had some improvement, but there was some good laughs and even a surprise moment for those who didn't see it coming.
