Men With Brooms [DVD] [2002]

Paul Gross and Leslie Nielson star in the comedy Men With Brooms. The film is presented in its original 1.85:1 widescreen aspect ratio and enhanced for 16x9 TVs. Artisan has done a fine job at making sure this transfer is clear, concise and full of dark black levels and solid color patterns. Aside of a small amount of grain in the image, the transfer for Men With Brooms looks excellent. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English and French. While this may not be the most effects heavy feature film ever created, it does make good use of directional effects and surround sounds especially during the curling games. All aspects of the mix are free and clear of any excessive hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo soundtrack in English, as well as English and French subtitles. Artisan has tacked on a few extra features to this disc, starting with a very fluffy featurette about the making of the film. This promotional piece includes some quick interviews with actors Paul Gross, Molly Parker and others. Also included on this DVD is a short interview with Gross discussing his past and his acting career, and a theatrical trailer for the film.

Synopsis

Men with Brooms
Paul Gross acts as writer, director, and star for this sports comedy about a Canadian curling team. When Chris Cutter (Gross) left his hometown of Long Bay, Ontario, he threw his team's curling stones into the lake and left his bride, Julie (Michelle Nolden), standing at the altar. Ten years later, the curling club's leader, Coach Foley, decides to start up the team again. However, he has a heart attack and dies while trying to retrieve the curling stones from the lake. Returning for the coach's funeral, Cutter fondly remembers his old curling days and decides to follow the terms of the coach's will: to win the prestigious Golden Broom championship. In order to fulfill this goal, Cutter brings the original members of Long Bay Curling Club back together, including mortician Neil (James Allodi), troublemaker James (Peter Outerbridge), and would-be father Eddie (Jed Rees). Chris also reunites with his own estranged father, Gordon (Leslie Nielsen), and gets involved with Julie's recovering alcoholic sister, Amy (Molly Parker). Features original music and special appearances by Canadian rockers the Tragically Hip. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
