A hilarious foreign film
30 August 2001 | by ab-2See all my reviews

The Ice Rink was a laugh riot. The movie is about a not so experienced film crew. The director (Tom Novembre) will do anything to just get a scene. The main actor (Bruce Campbell) and main actress (Dolores Chaplin) are having a romantic relationship in and out of the movie. To make matters worse the produce of the film is trying to get the film done in time for the Venice Film Festival. When you put all of these together you get one hell of a laugh riot of a film. This movie was just so funny. I laughed from beginging to end. I recommend this film to all because I know you will not be disappointed.

10/10
