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

Moira Kelly and D.B. Sweeney made a deal with each other to not do a sequel without the other. They had been offered a script to a possible sequel, but Sweeney said the script was terrible and the money being offered was insultingly low. Since then, a direct-to-DVD sequel and two TV-movie sequels have been made without their involvement. See more »
When Doug first meets Kate, he moves only a few steps towards her, as she is near the edge of the ice. In the subsequent wide shot, they are shown to be in the middle of the rink, some 40ft from the edge, even though they have not moved. See more »

D.B. Sweeney is great as Douglas in this awesome romance flick. The following cast is delightful. The costumes are beautiful. One of the good farces in the genre, Cutting Edge will urge the viewer to play the game of love. 8 out of 10.
