tumblr_me03ksQnPK1qb9vw8o1_500Is there anything that Paul Gross can’t do? He co-wrote, produced, directed, wrote some of the score and stars in Men With Brooms. And he’s also good looking. But his greatest achievement might be making a movie with the central theme of curling that is hilarious, poignant and completely entertaining. The curling is used as a metaphor for life, and while we’ve seen baseball and hockey used in a similar way in other movies, Gross loads up MWB with enough great performances, gratuitous beaver shots (the flat tailed kind) and Canadian in-jokes to create something unique. Look for the Tragically Hip in a cameo appearance.
