There’s nothing quite like a good chuckle, and comedy films are among the best ways to tickle our funny bones as well as satisfy our thirst for deep, hearty entertainment.

Jon Heder fractured his foot while training for his performance in Blades of Glory, truly the strongest ice skating film of all time.

It turned out to be a mixed blessing for the film directors since it allowed them to finish their absurd scenes.
