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."

You can't do this, Case. You're giving up on your dream.
No, Mom. I'm giving up on your dream. I'm going after mine.

I thought it was great how there wasn't any ugliness in the whole movie! It was a totally positive movie! Positive, you just don't get that anymore. It was nice to take my girls to a movie that I wasn't squirming in my seat hoping that nothing foul or nasty would pop up! I wish there were more movies out there like that. Not everything has to have sex or cursing to sell! I had to give it only a 9 out of 10 though because I thought the editing was a little choppy. I'm not a film expert by any means so the fact that I noticed it says something, I think. Although, it was still better than Raise Your Voice, the editing in that was horrible!
