"Blades of Glory"

By admin Published: March 27, 2007

In praise of a very stupid movie, after the jump ...

Compared to "Blades of Glory," "Dodgeball" is a thoughtful character study. This is not a criticism of "Blades," which is so confident about its own ridiculousness that it feels no need to humanize its characters, and its only failure is that of many good, silly comedies -- that it loses energy when it has to wind up its plot. Still, at a screening tonight, I had a ridiculously good time. And, in this jaded age, it's impressive to see a movie come up with a gag of sufficiently clever grossness that it can still get people to groan out loud.
