As the mostly cornball world of skating shows go, this one is sophisticated and very well-done.
The number most people remember from this is 'Singing in the Rain'. Kurt skates as Gene Kelly and indeed it is raining, which I'm sure was very difficult to film. Sandra Bezic choreographed and produced this, and she did a fantastic job. On the other end of the spectrum, Kurt was equally effective at the end skating to 'Have a Little Faithin Me' simply dressed at his practice rink.
'The Big Melt' is incredible, it highlights Kurt while also showcasing the best talents of Josee Chouinard and Hough & Ladret. Tuffy Hough is perfect in her bombshell role and Hough and Ladret's performance to 'Harlem Nocturne' is fantastic!
My favorite part is set to 'Simply Irresistible' by Robert Palmer. It's meant to scream 'Kurt likes girls!' and features him with Tuffy, Josee, and Kristi Yamaguchi showboating around in a series of indulgent outfits.
There is the requisite territory of Kurt skating with kids, and Kurt practicing ballet which I didn't really care for.
There's also an awesome gag reel during the credits. Katarina even makes a cameo!!
