Saturday: ‘Blades of Glory’

[IMG:L]Blades of Glory — 8:30/7:30c on HBO

It’s Easter Eve, so naturally you’re watching HBO’s Saturday night premiere, right?

If you have chosen Blades over the more holiday-appropriate Ten Commandments, airing on ABC, you know what you’re in for.

Although Will Ferrell’s semi-annual sports movies have recently become passé (following the release of Semi-Pro), it was still funny when Blades was released, especially since juxtaposing figure skating and Ferrell allows for maximum silliness.

Ferrell plays the archrival to Jon Heder’s (Napoleon Dynamite) skater, before the two exploit a rules loophole to compete in a pairs competition.
