Storyline

Rich, handsome, courteous Seattle golden boy Zack Conroy's figure skating partner Celeste Mercier is disabled for months in a training accident. Like their coach Bryan Hemmings, she insists he takes a temporary partner to go on to the national championship, his ticket to the world championship in Paris. Zach and his temper discard all candidates from the circuit, but after an alteration with an ice hockey amateur team he shares to ice with to train, he sets his mind on their only girl, taco joint daughter-waitress Alejandra 'Alex' Delgado. She's unacceptable to Hemmings, who dumps Zach and starts an affair with Celeste, whom he finds another partner. Zach and Alex's worlds keep clashing, but determination, her brother and another coach see them trough. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The insult that Bobby Delgado delivers to Zack at the beginning of the movie translates to "cheese face." See more »

Goofs

Alejandra would have not have been able to compete in senior level pairs. To compete senior level pairs, both skaters have to pass tests for each level. For pairs skaters, they have to pass all levels of moves in the field and pairs free skate tests. So even if she was qualified it would be unlikely she could have passed all 20 tests in a matter of months. See more »

Quotes

Alejandra Delgado: I hope you don't mind me bring nosy. But, your girlfriend! Is she ok with what were are doing ?
Zack Conroy: You know that is hype, about us being a couple! That was a long time ago.
Alejandra Delgado: Zack, I know what my eyes tell me that she cares for you more than just a friend.
Zack Conroy: Well, your partner is more than a friend. You sweat and hurt, you win and lose together. And most of all you have to trust each other with your lives. But that's just coming from a spoilt rich kid. So what do I know!

1 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, not sure why I felt compelled to comment on this movie, but having now sat through both the original (pretty good), the 2nd one (awful), and this one (much better), I have a good basis of comparison.

This was not high art, but it was a FAR better movie than the 2nd one. the key here being a pair of relatively unknown actors in the leads who did a nice job and had real chemistry (especially the female lead who was full of bounce and sass without being obnoxious). The leads in the second one were so horribly awkward it was like pulling teeth, but here you have likable and sympathetic characters. And the script lets them be likable too -- another thing that the 2nd movie got horribly wrong.

Unfortunately parts of the script are also the biggest weaknesses with this movie. There a handful of awkward scenes, and down the back half of the movie it was as if they hired some hack to try to artificially find some way to plagiarize as much of the original movie as possible and force it into this one, even when the pacing and fit was off.

But any romance is basically about the romantic leads. If they succeed and work well together, then the romance works. If they don't, it doesn't. Well, in this one they did. And so, not a classic, but eminently watchable for this sort of thing.
