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

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.

Scores a few points for doing what it does with a dedicated and good-hearted professionalism.

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

Funny, charming and great to see Leslie Nielsen in something not over-the-top dumb. This movie isn't meant to be a blockbuster full of highly paid actors.… More

Who could think they could make an interesting movie about curling.
