This is not an Academy Award nominee, but it was an enjoyable moviethat I could watch with my kids. While I admit that the main actress'tears were not great (I thought that part was forced myself), Ibasically enjoyed the movie, so much that, because I had missed thevery beginning the first time around, I watched the whole movie allover again to see how it began. It was an enjoyable escapist movie thatwe could all get into. Plus I love figure skating. I especially likedthat the brother and sister could finally "play together nice." OK, I'ma mom, but still I thought this was a nice flick. Given that it's akid's movie, there wasn't any blood and guts, but there was nicetension and an interesting choice for the main character to make.Various parts of it also made me laugh remembering the movie "TheCutting Edge." Toe Pick!!!

This was a Disney Channel Original Movie, so it can't be expected to bea masterpiece, but it was entertaining and had a good theme.
It centers around Katelin who is one of the best figure skaters aroundwhere she lives. A Russian figure skating coach decides to help makeher the best, but her parents won't pay for her to go to boardingschool. By pulling a few strings Natasha(the Russian coach) manages toget her a full scholarship at the same school, but for hockey instead.Katelin has to work extra hard if she wants to be the best. As well askeeping it a secret that she's a figure skater because all the girls onthe hockey team despise figure skaters.
The movie was good. The story was somewhat unrealistic(like in theaspect that she gets a full scholarship for a hockey team), but not waypredictable. It entertained me and had me rooting for Katelin. I'drecommend it to all kids around 14 or so and younger. And to parents ifthey can understand that it's aimed at the kids and not them.
I give this movie a 9 instead of a 10 because I thought that JordanHinson could have done a little better in her acting. Otherwise, themovie was pretty good. Iwas surprised that Disney could do so well! Itsabout a figure skater named Katelyn(Hinson) who gets a once in alifetime chance to train with a Russian coach(Rose), who is one of thebest in the business. There is just one problem, the coach is at aboarding school and Katelin cant afford it. The coach manipulates thehockey coach at the school to give Katelin a full ride HOCKEYscholarship. Now Katelyn must learn how to play hockey & train for theOlympic figure skating team. She learns that you must cope with yoursurroundings and try not to be selfish. She strikes up a little romancewith the assistant coach, Spencer(the very hot Abel), & makes goodfriends with the hockey team.
I loved this movie,but I recommend it for kids 14 years old or younger.
