Think The Full Monty on ice: Canada's most famous TV Mountie Paul Gross (Due South) puts tongue firmly in cheek as he applies the old underdog sports team formula to that great Northern obsession: curling.

The plot of the comeback curlers isn't very interesting actually, but what I like about Men With Brooms and what is kind of special is how the film knows what's unique and quirky about Canadians.

Not completely loveable -- but what underdog movie since The Bad News Bears has been? -- but certainly hard to hate.

It makes you believe the cast and crew thoroughly enjoyed themselves and believed in their small-budget film.

This is a winning ensemble comedy that shows Canadians can put gentle laughs and equally gentle sentiments on the button, just as easily as their counterparts anywhere else in the world.

Curling may be a unique sport but Men with Brooms is distinctly ordinary.

This isn't exactly profound cinema, but it's good-natured and sometimes quite funny.

While much of the cast has charm -- especially Allodi and Nolden -- the performers are sunk by the film's primitive approach to the mechanics of comedy.

Perhaps not since Nelson Eddy crooned his Indian Love Call to Jeanette MacDonald has there been a movie so unabashedly Canadian, not afraid to risk American scorn or disinterest.
