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 <>

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.
