A high-school bookworm transforms into a swan. Brainy Casey Carlyle has never quite fit in. Caught between her fantasy of becoming a championship figure skater and her strong-willed mother, who has her on the fast track to Harvard, she can only hope to be like Nikki, Tiffany and Gen--three elite skating prodigies who are ruthlessly competing on the US National circuit (and have attitudes to match). But when Casey gets the chance to train with Gen and her coach, a disgraced former skating champion who also happens to be Gen's mother, she must dash her own mother's hopes in order to pursue her dream. Now, with only the support of Gen's teenage brother, a hunky Zamboni driver, Casey takes on the challenge of her life when she finds herself competing against the best to make it into the championship circuit and become a real "ice princess."Written by

It is a sport, Mom. It is a thrilling and beautiful sport.
Are you sure it doesn't just make you feel beautiful?
So what if it does? What is so horrible about that? About feeling strong and graceful and beautiful for once in my life?

Likable characters having a good time and pulling you into that fun experience is what a film like this is trying to do, and it does it well. People's dislike for it, I believe, is an example of over-analyzing. The girls are thin and nubile eye candies so enjoy the skin.
