There's money to be made in an Olympic year
2 March 2006 | by coulombeSee all my reviews

The whole premise of this film is based on the main character as the daughter of Kate Moseley (Moira Kelly) and Doug Dorsey (D.B. Sweeney) of Paul Michael Glaser's film, "The Cutting Edge" (1992). The time line does not match. It is a physical impossibility.

The final scenes of "The Cutting Edge" take place at the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France. These games took place between 8-23 February 1992. Even if Kate had conceived on the night of the pairs final when they finally "said it", the child would have been born later that year. She would be 13 years old in 2006, ineligible for seniors skating and Olympic competition. Jackie Dorsey as portrayed in this film is definitely NOT thirteen! As a stand alone work, this might be an OK film, but to base it on the Mosely-Dorsey connection asks too much suspension of disbelief on the part of one who has seen and loved the story of Doug and Kate.

Too bad the makers couldn't wait for Vancouver.
