Consensus: This likable Disney film gets points for effort, but can't stick the landing when it comes to originality.

Nick Sylvester
Village Voice

The surprisingly twisty plot skates along with zero friction, giving new meaning to 'Disney on Ice.'

Trachtenberg is thoroughly believable, an unspoiled charmer. Her rise from clumsy girl to someone brimming with confidence and the author of one heckuva physics project, she's a pretty cool princess to root for.

Ebert & Roeper

There are far too many cringe-inducing clichés and gaping plot holes.

Susan Walker
Toronto Star

Watching this week's world figure skating championships in Moscow, one wonders why the scriptwriters went to such artificial lengths. There's drama enough in the sport as it is.

Cole Smithey

This dumb-as-a-stump teen girl coming-of-age movie envisions a high school physics geek (Michelle Trachtenberg) who turns into an ice skating pro as a result of her knowledge of physics.

The movie does have a strong sense of the special charisma and beauty of these young demons of grace who ride the thin line between dance and sport with unerring precision.

A savvier movie (and script) might have been able to mix some grays into its black and white palette.

Christopher Smith
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

Pure formula, but nevertheless an enjoyable triple klutz.

Such a great movie about following your heart & your dreams. Michelle Trachtenberg was awesome as was the rest of the cast.
Sophie Burgess
Awful kids film. The music is the only thing that gives you any emotion in this film since the acting and narrative is dull.
Bethany Murphy
I really enjoyed this. I love to watch people ice skate and the love between the two characters was beautiful. A really nice chick flick. A must see!
Jim Careter
A chick flick that bored the crap out of me. This is not worth anyone time, even with a few good moments in the film.

A cute little film that needed a little momentum. Kattrall was stellar, as was Trachtenberg.
