Storyline

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 <jscott@iastate.edu>

Trivia

The interaction of Kate & Doug in the film has some resemblance to that of Kate & Petruchio in William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and Beatrice & Benedick in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. See more »

Goofs

The first time we see Doug Dorsey, he is in the Olympic village, in bed with a German athlete. As he's scrambling around, getting dressed, he states her name incorrectly. She corrects him by saying, "Ich namen Gita." Even in German, "I name Gita" is grammatically incorrect. See more »

A Nod to the Rom/Coms of YesterYear
31 July 2004 | by (Dorset, UK) – See all my reviews

The Cutting Edge is a classic movie and one which I never get tired of watching.

The chemistry between Moira Kelly and D.B. Sweeney really sells this picture, even before you see the impressive scenery and fantastic skating sequences.

The script is filled with quotable gems, (It's not like his nose was perfect) and what could be a fairly thin story (that, OK, has been done before) is lifted firmly out of the cliche zone by first class direction, a thumping early 90's pop soundtrack and breathtaking choreography.

I can't fault this movie - it's one of my top five - and would recommend it as a family favourite.

This movie gets a very enthusiastic 10/10 from me.
