cute little comedy
14 December 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While not the most elaborated story we liked this movie. Its a light entertaining film and it never pretends to be more than just a little comedy. Event though the director uses mostly only cliches for the characters, the movie is consequent in its style. Slapstick with a very cool French tone and quite funny. Oh, yes -the story: a film crew uses an ice hockey game as the backdrop for a love story. 95% of the movie shows the film crew and the Lithuanian ice hockey players and the American Hollywood star and the ice rink manager who dreams of his famous past as ice-dancer on location - the ice rink.
