Ferrell plays a competitive ice skater named Chazz Michael Michaels in this comedy film directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck. After getting banned from the World Winter Sports Games with fellow gold medal winner Jimmy MacElroy because of an unfortunate accident, they both descend into obscurity. An opportunity to compete again against their brother-and-sister nemesis arises, and they perform an extremely dangerous move to ensure victory. Jon Heder, Will Arnett, and Amy Poehler co-star. On his chemistry with Heder:
We met in the parking lot of Pickwick Ice Rink in Burbank. It was like, ‘Hey, nice to meet you.’ ‘Yeah, you too.’ ‘This should be fun, right?’ ‘It’s going to be hard, huh?’ ‘You don’t know how to skate, do you?’ ‘No.’ ‘I don’t either.’ ‘Okay, I’ll see you later.’ (Laughing) That was kind of it.
