Standard but not uninteresting tale of a high school honor student (Michelle Trachtenberg) whose heart is secretly set on professional skating, and after working on a science project about correlation between skating and physics decides to train for the championships with former champion Tina (Kim Cattrall), over the objections of her mother (Joan Cusack), who's determined her daughter study physics at Harvard instead. Tim Fywell's modest film -- thematically similar to the 1977 ballet film "The Turning Point" -- is reasonably absorbing for all its plot predictability, the skating sequences are enjoyable, and the performances, within the one-dimensional demands of the story, are good, making this unobjectionable family entertainment, especially for young girls. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is G -- general audiences.
