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."

Although not a huge hit at the cinema the DVD/Blu-ray of this film sells extremely well at ice rinks all around the world. It has also become a perennial favorite of Christmas TV due to its winter based themes. See more »
When Casey talks the girl from Harvard, the girl's hair starts out on her shoulder, then changes in every scene. See more »
If it weren't for Kim Catrall, this movie deserved an 1, that's for sure. There are two BIG lies in this movie. First, the fact that a beginner like that girl can go that far in pro skating; this is an insult for all those girls who train from such an early age. Second... what has physics to do with skating? Oh, yeah, she just introduced physics in skating... what a breakthrough... In a sport that, for more than one century, has done nothing about introducing physics in skating. The entire idea is kinda cliché, but the two things above made it from a medium to a really bad movie.
So no... I didn't like it.
PS: Ice princess with silver medal... I laughed hard on this one ^^
