This is one of the featurettes on the DVD of Blades of Glory. It consists of interviews, behind the scenes footage and film clips. This is supposedly a making-of, but really, it's kind of a running joke, and not a particularly good one. Yes, we get it, not many movies have ice-skating as their primary focus. And of course they don't know professional ones. I'm all for mocking the typical love-fest, mainly promotional talking heads documentaries, but please try to make sure you have actual punchlines if you're going to go for that. This is basically everyone pretending to be dumb, and occasionally also a jerk. I don't know if this will be funny to those who loved the flick itself, maybe it will. To me it comes off as being too lazy to do a proper making of, and a one-note gag that goes on for far longer than it ought to, with a running time of 14 minutes(!). The one for the Danish Christmas calendar "Jul på Vesterbro" got it right by still including information, and by having an awful lot of charm. This has neither. There is mild to moderately strong language in this. I recommend this to fans of the picture itself. 5/10
