10 years later, it's time to give 'Blades of Glory' the respect it deserves
'Blades of Glory' hit theaters 10 years ago today. I was 12 years old at the time, and there was nothing that could get me in a theater faster than a new Will Ferrell movie. To this day, I have never laughed harder in a movie theater than I did on March 30, 2007. I left the theater fully confident that I had seen a comedy classic.
But despite generally favorable reviews and nearly $150 million at the box office, 'Blades of Glory' has been all but cast aside in favor of 2007's shiny new toys: 'Superbad' and 'Knocked Up.' And while the aforementioned films are both truly hilarious and worthy of the praise they've received, they've had their time in the sun.I've probably seen 'Blades of Glory' 10 or 15 times since it came out. It is truly a delightful movie from beginning to end, and it pains me to know that there are millions - if not billions - of people around the world who haven't experienced this piece of classic American cinema.
Allow me to walk you through a few clips and make the case for why 'Blades of Glory' deserves your time, attention, and most importantly, your respect.
