Product Description

This heartwarming story follows a brainy high-school student (Michelle Trachtenberg) who discovers a passion for ice-skating, and by using her smarts and following her heart, she makes it to the U.S. figure skating circuit to find that dreams really can come true.

Additional Features

Fans of Ice Princess will enjoy seeing the five deleted scenes, even though like most DVD deleted scenes they wouldn't have added much to the film. In fact, the alternate opening (an extended scene that flashes back to Casey's earlier childhood) and a later scene would have undesirably softened Joan Cusack's and Kim Cattrall's characters. Some cut scenes involving Casey and her Snoplow classmates are fun. The two music videos spotlight key songs from the soundtrack, Caleigh Peters's "Reach" and Ally & AJ's "No One," but co-star Hayden Panettiere's "I Fly" is a curious omission. The commentary track follows the Disney trend of featuring its young actors, in this case Michelle Trachtenberg (Casey), Panettiere (Gen), Trevor Blumas (Teddy), and Kirsten Olsen (Nikki, the "Jumping Shrimp"). Film aficionados won't learn that much about the crafting of the movie, but the kids have spirit and talk about the "exploding butt shot" and who already knew how to skate. It can be a little tricky to figure which girl is speaking, though. --David Horiuchi

It's amazing that the wonderfully brutal sport of hockey and the graceful sport of ice skating take place on the same surface - it took a while, but I've actually come to appreciate the sport of figure skating (well, women's figure skating, anyway). Ice Princess, naturally enough, is all about figure skating - but it's really about so much more than that: pursuing a dream, doing what you love, having the courage to take chances and make big decisions, dealing with parental pressure at its best and worst, competing with honor, and basically just figuring out what you want and taking control of your own life - and, yes, it's also about Michelle Trachtenberg looking absolutely gorgeous. Disney always puts out good films; Ice Princess is fairly predictable, but there's nothing wrong with a predictable story that inspires you and makes you feel good - and the film actually isn't quite as predictable as I thought it would be.

Michelle Trachtenberg plays Casey Carlyle, a science geek who loves skating out on the pond but is focused on winning a physics scholarship to Harvard. The story doesn't really work the high school misfit angle very hard, but it's not really the focus of the movie, anyway. Casey needs to come up with a personalized physics project to impress the Harvard recruiters, and so it is that she turns to ice skating with all of its angles, velocities, vectors, and mathematical implications as her ticket to achievement. It's not enough to watch and study the skaters training under the local coach Tina Harwood (Crow T. Robot's favorite actress, Kim Cattrall), though; she begins taking skating lessons herself (surrounded by much younger, competitive little students) to put her theories to the test, and she discovers she has some real talent.

I had a free movie pass and there was nothing playing at the theater I had to use the pass at. I decided to just see Ice Princess, thinking it would be nothing more than a joke and a re-creation of The Princess Diaires. While the two movies are similar in tone and overall sweetness, Ice Princess is a good, funny movie of it's own.

Casey Carlyle (Michelle Trachtenberg-- Eurotrip) is a physics wiz. She has a real knack for it and is convinced by her teacher to go after a Harvard scholarship. All she has to do is do a physics experiment, one that will reflect her personality. As a pond skater, she decides to study how skaters do their jumps and actually figure a mathematical formula for them. Soon, she's tangled up at the local rink, filming other skaters and beginning to love skating more than she ever thought she could. Toss a cute guy into the mix, a feminist mother (Joan Cusack, who is so funny in this role) who doesn't agree with prancing around in those little outfits, and a bitter coach (Kim Cattrall), and you've got a fun movie to see with the girls on a Friday night.

All in all, I had fun seeing this movie, and I'm glad I used the movie pass to see this one. Whether it's Harvard or skating with "Has-Beens on Ice" (as Casey's mom says), a girl should just do what she truly wants and not what everyone else wants. Very cute, only mildly cheesy in some spots (the party scene is ridiculous and not needed at all in this movie!), check this one out! Obviously, certain demographic groups will like this more (ahem-- 8-14 year old girls for instance), but I saw two 15 year old boys in the theater and they liked it just fine too. I'm older than all the previously mentioned and I enjoyed it! I'm sure you will too!

This is a delightful, wholesome film that is tailored for a general audience and should provide fun for the whole family. It is a coming of age story of a teenage girl, who is engaging in some self-discovery that may change her life.

Casey Carlyle (Michelle Trachtenberg) is a somewhat shy, geeky girl, who lives in a rural area with her mother, Joan Carlyle (Joan Cusack). Her mother, a professor at a local backwater college, feeling that she herself did not always make the best choices when she was younger, pushes Casey hard to excel academically, envisioning Harvard on her daughter's college horizon. Casey is an outstanding student, as she is an extremely bright girl, and is, in fact, a physics whiz. She also loves to figure skate on the pond in her back yard, but as her mother stresses academics over athletics, this is just an enjoyable pastime for Casey.

Then, her high school science teacher tells her that she stands a good chance to get a scholarship to pursue physics at the college level. The scholarship requires that she develop a physic project, and the teacher counsels Casey to ground the project in something for which she has a passion. Casey decides that she will have her physics project revolve around the dynamics of figure skating. This project, which is actually quite interesting, will consume Casey's senior year in high school.

Casey gets herself over to the local skating rink run by figure skating Coach Tina Harwood (Kim Cattrall). There, Coach Harwood rules her skaters, one of whom is her own daughter, Gen (Hayden Panettiere), and a fellow classmate of Casey, with an iron hand. As Casey becomes more involved in the world of figure skating, she decides that her project would benefit from some first hand experience.
