At the 1988 Winter Olympics at Calgary, we see Doug Dorsey battered in a vicious hockey game against West Germany. We then see Kate Moseley doing her program and falling when a lift goes bad. Both have fought all their life to get to the Olympics and suddenly the dream has been shattered. The movie then follows Kate, a tempermental but talented figure skater, through many partners until finally her coach resorts to recruiting a hockey player. Through the difficult training of 15 hours of skating a day they finally prepare for Nationals and the Olympics. A romance is budding and their final show could bend or break them as they try to achieve their dreams of an Olympic Gold medal. Written by Pat Delin <>

At the New Year's Eve party, when Doug and Hale are having their little confrontation, Kate is facing the camera between them. She chooses not to participate, does a 180 turn, and walks away, to join a group of ladies across the room. She stops with her back to the camera. In a micro-second(after a poor edit) she is shown on the opposite side of the group, facing the camera. See more »

a classic
18 July 1999 | by (toronto) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that show that you don't have to have special effects or lots of money for a movie to be great. This is like a movie from 1940s in which acting is the main factor.

The tension between two leads is the structure of this movie.

Its a great romantic/comedy movie and one of my favorites.
