Say what you will about the frat pack’s resident aggro-lug Will Ferrell: Anyone who turns a throwaway retort like “I will get inside your face!” into a coup de grce is a comic talent. If only he didn’t keep slumming in star vehicles like this sports-movie parody, which keeps its laughs quarantined to the setup. After Ferrell’s manchild partners with a fey figure-skating rival (Heder), it’s strictly uninspired buddy-comedy bickering. Never mind the opening-weekend grosses; a few more of these cash-ins, and Ferrell may find himself on thin you-know-what. (Now playing; Click here for venues.)—David Fear
