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."

Not bad
24 March 2005 | by Artistica1085See all my reviews

I saw this film as a guilty-pleasure trip with a girlfriend of mine.

It was pretty cute. And I like Michelle.

She was very down-to-earth and graceful.

She is a good role model for the young audience.

I kind of liked the fact they didn't use big stars in the film, which, unless it is a blockbuster flick, can really be distracting.

However, during a few scenes, I spotted a microphone poking down over the actor's heads,which was extremely ridiculous, especially for Disney. But, all in all, not bad.

Plus, I paid only for a matinée ticket so I didn't feel cheated at all.
