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, to 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

Addictive and Motivating
31 March 2008 | by ddempsey1See all my reviews

I can describe this movie in one word "Addictive". I loved the first Cutting Edge, and I liked the second but I can not remember the last time a movie has had such an impact. Matt and Francia were wonderful actors and along with the whole cast, they brought this movie to life and made it seem real. It reminds me of the start of mine and my husband's relationship. When I found out this movie was coming on TV I had to record it and have watched it every night since. The story line, the music and the skating draw you in and make you feel a part of this movie. If you are a skater, ice or roller you will be "Motivated" to go skating after this movie. If you like Romance and Skating this is definitely a Must See Movie and Must Have DVD.
