Ferrell plays his typical character, causing the film to lack originality; however, his acting talent is so strong that he brings great humor to the movie. Heder is funny, and while Jimmy is eccentric in different ways than Napoleon, both characters are pass‚.

According to, Blades “debuted as the No. 1 movie with $33 million in ticket sales.” On a scale of zero to ten, the movie would be rated a seven. Between the previews and the quoted lines from your friends, you may not need to actually see the movie. However, it is apparently one of the best movies currently at the box office.
