Trivia

Goofs

The women in the international pair figure skating competition are considered to be 'slightly built' and are seldom taller then 5' 3" (1.60 cm), this due to the fact that they have to be lifted by their partner rather often during a program. According to the biography of actress Christy Carlson Romano, who plays the character of Jackie Dorsey, she stands 5' 8 1/2" (1.74 m). This is quit unlikely. In addition to this: there appears to be very little difference in length between her and her male skating partner, while this at least would be 6" to 12" (15 to 30 cm). See more »

Quotes

Kate Moseley: No! Absolutely not! Nobody does side by side triples! It's too dangerous

Kate Moseley: You agreed to this?
Jackie Dorsey: [nods sheepishly] Kind of. It was a long flight.

Not even an entertaining sort of bad film
13 March 2006 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

The original Cutting Edge wasn't classic cinema by any stretch of the imagination, but it was a fun little movie in its own way. This sequel has all of the bad qualities of the original film, and absolutely none of the good ones. The actors barely "act", the skating is ridiculous (and haven't they figured out yet that competitions aren't done under spotlights, pairs don't skate to vocal music, and the music doesn't start until the skaters are out in the middle of the ice?), and the dialog is straight out of a high-schooler's fanfic.

The overbearing use of soundtrack music is another problem with the film; it's used to tell you exactly what the characters are thinking, almost constantly. It rarely stops. And the thing is, they have to do this because the acting is so poor that the music is really the only way to get the emotions across. Music in movies can be great, but in this one it really seemed overdone and the lyrics far too literally connected to the plot. (It's not an opera, you know...)

Currently there are a bunch of 10 ratings for this film; they have got to be shill votes, because this is just not a good movie in any sense. Also, the earlier poster who claimed that the original Cutting Edge was actually from 1980... um, no. You are probably thinking of Ice Castles (1978) -- and if you are looking for an ice skating-themed romance, try that movie instead. It's dated, but far, far better than this low-budget travesty.
