An abandoned zebra (voice of Frankie Muniz) grows up believing he is a racehorse, and, with the help of his barnyard friends and a teenage girl (Hayden Panettiere), sets out to achieve his dream of racing with thoroughbreds.
A high-school bookworm transforms into a swan. Brainy Casey Carlyle has never quite fit in. Caught between her fantasy of becoming a championship figure skater and her strong-willed mother, who has her on the fast track to Harvard, she can only hope to be like Nikki, Tiffany and Gen--three elite skating prodigies who are ruthlessly competing on the US National circuit (and have attitudes to match). But when Casey gets the chance to train with Gen and her coach, a disgraced former skating champion who also happens to be Gen's mother, she must dash her own mother's hopes in order to pursue her dream. Now, with only the support of Gen's teenage brother, a hunky Zamboni driver, Casey takes on the challenge of her life when she finds herself competing against the best to make it into the championship circuit and become a real "ice princess."

Michelle Trachtenberg had never skated before. She learned professional skating for this movie in 10 months. See more »
Before Casey's first skating competition, when Tina is standing outside of the car, she's talking about the CDs she'll play on the way back. At one point, she says "your music," but her lips are saying something different. See more »
Are you aware you had practice half an hour ago?
Yes, I am aware and I am done.
You can't do this, it is ridiculous.
No, I was ridiculous for putting myself through this for so long. We both know I don't have the talent.
Do you know what I want? No, you don't know what I want. I want to go to the homecoming dance with Brian. I want stop missing school, I like school. I want to stop feeling like an idiot for flunking math because I don't have the time to learn it. I want...
Okay, we will ...

When I watched this movie, last night, I was very satisfied. I think this movie was very well made. Even though it was predictable but I like how it was portrayed, there was something very different about this movie in my eyes.
And all the actors/actresses I think, did very well in this movie.
And Michelle T's character looked very graceful while skating, and I think she did a really excellent job.
If you haven't seen this movie, I recommend seeing this. And I know this might be considered a chick flick, but I watched this movie by myself, on my own, and I'm a guy. So I don't think being a guy matters, just try to open your eyes up a little.
I would probably watch this movie again, sometime. Perhaps next time with a girl. But I say watch this movie, its well worth it.
