Blades of Glory is a 2007 American sports comedy film directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck and starring Will Ferrell and Jon Heder as a mismatched pair of banned figure skaters who become teammates upon discovering a loophole that will allow them to compete in the sport again. The film’s story was conceived by Busy Philipps, who “fleshed out the screenplay”; co-writers Jeff and Craig Cox, however, dropped her name from the script. The film was produced by MTV Films, Red Hour, and Smart Entertainment and released on March 30, 2007, by Paramount Pictures.
