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

Some of the commentators and reporters were actual U.S. figure skating stars. Judy Blumberg (one of the Nationals and Olympic commentators) was a US ice dance champ and Olympic medalist, JoJo Starbuck, the blonde interviewer who is at rinkside when Kate and Doug come off the ice after their Olympic short program, was a US pairs champion in the early 1970s, and Robin Cousins (Nationals commentator, who also choreographed the skating programs) was a men's Olympic and World champion from Britain. (For some reason the filmmakers chose to dub over his English accent with an American voice.) See more »

Goofs

During the first Nationals skate, Kate can be seen sitting on a foam "saddle" of some sort that was used to get a side-by-side action shot of her & Doug skating in sync. See more »

Quotes

Hale: I don't like to see her upset.
Doug: If I was you, I'd invest in blindfolds.

You're such a neanderthal
28 January 2003 | by (Montgomery, Alabama) – See all my reviews

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.
