One of the perks I have with being friends (since college, even though I'm somehow much much younger) with a famous film critic, is going to screenings. Therefore, I was able to tip the Dear Readers off to Borat, which you know is my favorite comedy of all time. Second in laughs, at least, was Talladega Nights, which proved to me that I have the sense of humor of a pre pubescent boy! But Will Ferrell makes me laugh, what can I do?
My friend the ABC Good Morning America critic, Joel Siegel, took me to all of these and now, the other night we saw the new Will movie...Blades of Glory. It spoofs figure skating and is kind of a combo of Zoolander meets Talladega.
I laughed a lot...but not as much as the other two films. Every famous real figure skater was doing a cameo and the only easy joke missing was the famous Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding moment.."Why? Why?"
But I do recommend it and...as a bonus, Joel will give you his opinion on this very blog!
