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."

Both mom and daughter relationship actresses share the same birthday. For instance, Michelle Trachtenberg and Joan Cusack share the same birthday, October 11, but not the same year. Hayden Panettiere and Kim Cattrall share the same birthday, August 21, but not the same year. See more »
Teddy's Zamboni is too heavy for the ice on the "pond" near Casey's house. See more »
I was this close, this close to losing!

Don't you know what'll happen after six months with Tina?
She'll whip my butt! Someone is going to pay big time.

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.
