Storyline

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."

Goofs

Snowplow Sam skills are: sitting and standing, marching in place, marching forward, gliding, dips, backward wiggles, swizzles, rocking horse, two-foot hops, forward skating, forward one-foot glides, and snowplow stops. The Snowplow Sam class is learning advanced skills. During the practice session, the skaters are landing axels, which are usually learned much later. See more »

A Gold Medal!
18 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

Besides what the cynics will see Ice Princess is an undeniable bubblegum treat and despite it's sometimes lapse in logic makes an agreeable sports film both emotional and intense. Trachtenberg of Buffy fame stars as the title star a physics geek in school whom when offered the opportunity to go to college with a scholarship, decides to base her summer project on figure skating and the physics proportions of what would accustom special movements and such. In that she finds a passion she's long denied herself because of her over bearing, feminist, college professor MOM played wonderfully by Joan Cusack whom of course thinks it's just a waste of time. The film is of course a clash of overly obvious clichés but anyone seeing this film should know that already. But these are the clichés that make movies like this truly inspiring and enjoyable. The film is fun, memorable and heart tugging. But the standout addition here is a wonderful performance by the still gorgeous Kim Catrall she's still in mean mode but god can she deliver those lines and still come off likable ultimately. So throwout what cynics will say about this sleeper treat and go experience this gold medal for your selves. 9/10
