Blades of Glory

After attempted sabotage by the brother and sister pairs team, Stranz and Fairchild Van Waldenberg, Chazz Michael Michaels (Will Ferrell) and Jimmy MacElroy (Jon Heder) get to the ice with seconds to spare before disqualification.They start their final skate to try and win the tournament and, when Fairchild sees it going well, she breaks her necklace spilling beads onto the ice. Chazz skates into one lone bead on the ice and breaks his ankle meaning he can't perform the Iron Lotus - the most dangerous and controversial move in all the skating world.Jimmy tells Chazz they'll swop places and he'll lift Chazz...they go for it and with millimetres to spare they pull it off and land it superbly.They win the gold, Jimmy gets his girl, and the Van Waldenberg's are arrested for numerous illicit which point they erupt into a massive row and share a passionate embrace.


Continuity mistake: When Chazz Michael Michaels goes to Katie Van Waldenberg to "comfort" each other Chazz leaves the door slightly open. Then it has a shot of Katie then back to Chazz and the door is completely closed. Then right before Jimmy walks in it shows a shot of Chazz and the door and it is slightly open again.

Question: So is the loophole used to get Chazz and Jimmy back into the figure skating arena actually in the Olympic Pairs skating rules somewhere?

Answer: No. International Skating Union regulations clearly states that the pair has to be a man and a woman.


That wasn't the loophole. The loophole was that a ban is only good for the division where the skater was banned. If they were banned in singles, they could still compete in pairs.
