Storyline

Wendy, Veda, and J.C. are part of Southern California's thriving figure skating community - the bottom part. Luckily this is America, the land of opportunity, where a dream in your heart and personal gain in your sights can propel almost anyone to stardom. With this in mind Wendy, Veda, and J.C. are fighting their way to Olympic glory. But first they have to win the Regional Competition - and there can only be ONE winner. Will it be Veda? The beautiful ice princess who responds to her over-bearing mother by routinely puking up her lunch. Or Wendy? The plus-size skater with the super-plus libido. And what about J.C.? The orphaned trailer park girl who'd gladly trade you a pack of smokes for a sequined thong. Under the watchful gaze of Zamboni Phil, the girls train, toil and plot their way to success. Let the Games begin! Written by Anonymous

One of the worst movies of all time
21 June 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Being a huge fan of mockumentaries, I liked the premise of "On Edge." Figure Skating is a great opportunity to create something very funny and original.

That being said, this movie was so bad it was unwatchable. One of the big reasons I wanted to see this movie in the first place was because of the inclusion of Jason Alexander in the cast, but his performance in this film is painfully bad. I couldn't tell if it was because of over-acting or under-acting.

Nothing about this movie seemed to flow. The jokes, if you even want to call them that, were so far away from funny that I found myself cringing at times. By calling this a mockumentary, "On Edge" taints what is usually a funny genre. "The Spinal Tap of Figure Skating" this movie is not.

If you want to see how Mockumentaries are supposed to be done, then rent "Spinal Tap," "Best In Show," "A Mighty Wind," etc. Save yourself the $3.50 and do not rent "On Edge."
