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
if you know anything about the real world of figure skating, you will love this
I am starting out my addressing someones review in which they say:"this movie was so mean spirited, stupid, and unfunny. How many more fat jokes could they make? What was up with the gross character played by Scott Hamilton? He should be ashamed for making this movie. How could Kristi and Tai want to be associated with this disaster? "
Its awesome that people love figure skating but what is HILARIOUS about this movie is that those scenarios and all the jokes are the real parts of figure skating that most fans don't know exist. As a competitive figure skater on the national level for over 12 years, this movie is hilarious and all other skaters agree. It pokes fun of the real things that we deal with. You think the fat jokes are cruel, well thats the real world of figure skating. Judges DO judge on that. And the reason so many olympians participated both acting and behind the scenes of this movie is because it pokes fun of the harsh realities of this sport. Kudos to you guys for making a skating movie thats actually accurate. Nothing bugs me more than when people hear that you are a figure skater and they say "i love the cutting edge" For us skaters, that movie is the worst thing ever and its so far from reality it annoying.
Oh yeah, and by the way, kathy griffins character was hilarious because skaters always try to lie about their age to make themselves younger. I get how most people that are fans wouldn't get most of the jokes but for skaters this movie is a tribute. And the judges and higher ups are gross, thats why scotties character was so funny. LOL!!!
