Horribly bad
14 December 2005 | by schriftstellerinSee all my reviews

Maybe it was the quality of the version I saw, but the dialogue seemed stilted and it wasn't very funny- which was disappointing because Roscoe Karns is so brilliant. Dare doesn't seem to get a break in showcasing any ice skating talent and it seems she is just there to help the plot limp along.

The whole plot seemed muddied and muddled from the beginning. The only saving grace of this movie was that it was great to see Roscoe Karns and Edgar Kennedy. I think this movie could have been made better by putting a stronger emphasis on Dare, giving her something decent to work with and by having used actresses who knew how to play off of the other characters.
