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."

Trivia

The name "Tina Hardwood" is a reference to Tonya Harding. In the movie, Tina tried to cheat her way to the top by injuring another skater, in the same way Tonya was accused of being involved in the attack on Nancy Kerrigan, a skating competitor. See more »

Goofs

In all the shots of Casey between putting on the outfit her mom got her for the Harvard alumni tea and arriving at the tea, the portion of the skating costume covering her hand isn't visible. When she reaches for an hors d'oeuvre, however, that portion of the costume is clearly visible. See more »

Quotes

Gen Harwood: [after doing Casey's makeup] You're hot, but stay away from Brian, he's mine. Now Teddy, Teddy you can have.
Casey Carlyle: Oh um... but I don't...
Gen Harwood: You know, I may not be as smart as you are, but I'm not an idiot.

A Great Figure Skating Story - Growing Up
18 March 2005 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Just like kids, The Ice Princess is both about growing up as well as the growing up of juvenile/youth movies. The Ice Princess dances rings around most figure skating movies because perhaps the movie industry is growing up. The focus on skating, on relationships is great and there is some nice skating shots as well as some surprise cameos. Instead of the usual comedy romance genre as in The Cutting Edge, a standard of such movies, The Ice Princess actually focuses on the biting, raw under the surface issues surrounding youth girls and their mothers today. Without stereotypes, without the usual hype, this movie successfully avoids the juvenile movie traps and plays it both softer of the stereotypes and more on the real and the harsher edges of drama in this movie. This an entertaining, educational, well done movie about going for one's potential, about dreams lost and hoped for, about conflict and doubt, about mothers and daughters, about rivalry and sharing. One of the best girl movies this year and last year. Highly recommended. Eight out of Ten Stars.
