Storyline

Emily James showed great promise as a figure skater, but has not been in the public eye in eight years, then when she stopped skating competitively without a public statement as to why.

Emily's decision to quit competitive skating was not because she lost her love for the activity, as demonstrated by the fact that she is at the rink every every morning before it opens, skating for her own pleasure, and by she always willing to help Dave Shelton, the rink/skate shop manager, with skating parties.

where is the romance??
20 June 2020 | by ronbokirkSee all my reviews

The movie is supposed to be a romantic comedy but ironically someone cast Andrew Walker for the lead and he CAN'T do romance. he has no spark or chemistry with his female lead no matter how good she is. I have seen him in other romance movies with really good female leads and it is always the same..no chemistry or spark. lets face it, he just can't act.
