Times-Washington PostNews ServiceNow showing at Capitol TheatreBLADES OF GLORYBased on the number of prominent cameos by figure skating royalty in this pas de deux comedy, the world of toe loops, double axels and triple Lutzes has a pretty good sense of humor about itself. And that’s a good thing because the movie, which stars Will Ferrell and Jon Heder as rival skaters forced to restart their careers as the first male-male pairs team, leaves no sacred cow or Salchow untipped. “Blades” is a hysterical parody as long as bodies are in motion, nailing the compulsories of a sport ripe for caricature, but it skates on thinner ice outside the rink. Whatever combination of choreography, camera trickery and special effects were required to render the over-the-top, hyper-real skate numbers, they’re executed with wit and ingenuity. (1:33) PG-13 for crude and sexual humor, language, a comic violent image and some drug references.- L.A.
