      Audience Member If you're 12 years old and you like fart jokes you will love this movie I promise you. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member This was my type of movie with style and a lot more but a ton of the jokes missed to me 2.9 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/10/20 Full Review Audience Member I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! It's so Canadian! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/01/20 Full Review corkball Formulaic underdog sports movie. It has some quirky Canadian-specific charm, but nothing particularly interesting happens in this film, and it is REALLY hard to get worked up by curling. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I've loved this movie ever since I first saw it years ago, and was reminded of it when I saw it again just now. It's Canadian, with a capital Canuck, and for that alone I adore it. (How to define Canadian themes, Canadian ambiance and pacing, Canadian sense of wry, surrealistic japery mixed with deep and kind empathy? I can't. But I know it when I see it.) All the actors are very good and sometimes more than very good (Molly Parker and Peter Outerbridge especially) and Gross's direction is deft and remarkably light. There are a couple of gags that fall flat in 2019; other than that, this is a tiny bit of brilliance. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. The only actors name that I recognized was Leslie Neilsen and I recognized the debt collector but didn't know his name, however this movie was really enjoyable! It ends up dragging you into it and also taught me things about curling that I didn't know. Overall, I would and will recommend to others that this movie is worth watching and one that I would watch again. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      William Thomas Empire Magazine Serving as director, writer and lead, Paul Gross -- who enjoyed brief fame in the TV Mountie show Due South -- imbues his film with that series' same languid Canadian charm. Rated: 3/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Steven Rosen Denver Post It makes you believe the cast and crew thoroughly enjoyed themselves and believed in their small-budget film. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 20, 2002 Full Review Robert Denerstein Denver Rocky Mountain News Rated: B Sep 20, 2002 Full Review Brian D. Johnson Maclean's Magazine The filmmakers have great fun mixing and matching the game's metaphors. With such gags as a sweat lodge of hot curling rocks, they send up and glorify its rituals all at once. Mar 24, 2020 Full Review Sean Axmaker Seanax.com Think The Full Monty on ice: Canada's most famous TV Mountie Paul Gross (Due South) puts tongue firmly in cheek as he applies the old underdog sports team formula to that great Northern obsession: curling. May 22, 2016 Full Review MaryAnn Johanson Flick Filosopher On one hand, it's a Canadian movie about curling, so points for originality and cultural pride... On the other hand, almost all of those points for originality come back off, because... we can see it all coming from the opening scenes. I mean, everything. Jul 7, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews
