If it weren't for our willingness to laugh at egocentric doofuses, Will Ferrell might not have a career at all.

The man whose George W. Bush imitation turned our 43rd president into a smirking frat boy, who skewered preening TV news readers in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and pompous NASCAR blowhards in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby ... that Will Ferrell is back onscreen, this time as a cocksure men's figure skater in Blades of Glory. Heaven help us.

Blades of Glory (Paramount Pictures) Starring Will Ferrell, Jon Heder. Directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck. Rated PG-13. Time 93 minutes.
