Important Stuff[edit]

As long as we are making words like "town" and "coach" linked, I suggest we also make the following words linked just for people who might be reading this from, say, a 2nd grade classroom:

- successful

- English

- film

- sport

- skip (seriously!)

- offbeat

- struggle

- cameo appearance

- outdoor scenes

- accurate

- liberties

- novelization

At that point, we could just as well make all the words linked, and why not? Wikipedia is here to educate! (I myself did not know what a "town" was until I found this article!)

I edited the page to remove the unneccessary links for 'town' and 'coach' (as the anonymous person above suggested) and removed the following text from the first paragraph:

[The movie is] among the most successful English Canadian films on a Canadian subject ever.

This is too trivial in my opinion. The list of "succesful English Canadian films on a Canadian subject" is probably very short (if anyone keeps such a list, which I doubt, please enlighten us) so this movie being among them does not say much. With statements this specific, everything is the most something. This aside, the definition of "success" is unclear and probably arbitrary.

It is also the most successful curling movie, and the only major feature film which centres around the sport.

Again, this doesn't say much unless there are notable curling movies to compare to, which there aren't. The fact that it is the first move on this subject is mentioned later (if people feel this is important enough to put in the first paragraph, feel free to put it back in.) 23:41, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:MenWithBroomsposter.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:MenWithBroomsposter.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

The plot description reads too much like a trailer. In other Wikipedia pages, the plot summarizes the whole movie. Could someone do this? (If not, I can put the title back on my Netflix queue and take a whack at it.) (talk) 03:07, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

  • This still needs to be done. :( WilyD 17:08, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
