Product Description

The Cutting Edge: Chasing the Dream follows in the footsteps of the original hit romantic comedy, The Cutting Edge which charmed audiences with its story of an unlikely pair of polar opposites who unite on the ice for a shot at Olympic gold.

Amazon.com

A sequel to the 1992 The Cutting Edge: Going for the Gold , The Cutting Edge: Chasing the Dream is a romantic tale about believing in oneself, which emphasizes hard work, persistence, and the importance of listening to one's heart. Figure skaters Zack Conroy (Matt Lanter) and Celeste Mercier (Sarah Gadon) are headed for nationals, but when Celeste injures her ankle trying a new move, it looks like the pair is out of the competition unless Zack can find another partner. Problem is, Zack has a reputation for trying wild and crazy stunts that endanger the safety of his partner and virtually no one wants to skate with him. A chance meeting with hockey player Alexandra Delgado (Francia Raisa) sparks a heated argument followed by Zack's grudging respect for her talented skating. The unlikely duo pair up to skate, but Zack's coach (Stefano Colacitti) is skeptical of their commitment and refuses to coach them. Enter Zack's old friend Jackie Dorsey (Christy Romano), daughter of the famous hockey player Doug Dorsey from the first Cutting Edge movie, pairs star from the second movie, and now instructor at the local skating school, to make Zack and Alexandra work harder than either has ever worked in his or her life. Tempers and romance flare and fade, and eventually Zack and Alexandra find themselves in Paris for the world championships where they must figure out the true nature of their relationship with one another as well as execute the ultimate in dangerous skating moves to have any chance of victory. While The Cutting Edge: Going for the Gold was a somewhat disappointing follow up to the first movie because the relationships seemed superficial, the characters were extreme to the point of being unbelievable, and the skating footage was fairly unconvincing, The Cutting Edge: Chasing the Dream redeems itself somewhat with more believable characters and more realistic skating footage. It's not the best skating movie ever, but it is entertaining. Bonus features include three deleted scenes and an 11-minute making-of featurette with director Stuart Gillard; actors Matt Lanter, Francia Raisa, Sarah Gadon, and Christy (Carlson) Romano; and ice skating choreographer Jamie Isley. Rated PG-13 for some sexual references. --Tami Horiuchi

Okay, I have to admit that I was a little skeptical of another sequel to a movie which I love and watch over and over as though I'm going to find something that I missed the first million times I've seen it. But to be honest, after watching Chasing the Dream right after the Cutting Edge marathon on ABC Family, I have to say that I liked this one a lot better than I did the second one, Going for the Gold.

If you've seen the second one, you might agree with me when I say that it is a lot like the first via plot and character wise. Jackie has a temper similar to her mother from the first, and Alex plays the happy-go-lucky kid who's got nothing to lose much like Doug in the original.

However, in this third one, there seems to me much more going on with the characters - there's more history to them compared to the second movie. Zack is a bit of a risk-taker, which lands to his partners getting hurt, but he learns from his mistakes (meaning that you can't always takes risks all the time) in part because he falls in love. (Remember though he does admit to Celeste his mistake after her accident.)

Alex had the dream as a child, but due to her family's situation was never able to follow through with it, and is now determined to go for it, with or without Zack at her side at times. As a reference to the original, she plays hockey with her older brother and his friends, and unknowningly shows Zack moves from her figure skating days. She does like him from the beginning, but is able to put her feelings aside when he gives her the cold shoulder on the advice of Celeste.

Then there's Jackie, brought back to coach them after Zack's coach leaves to coach his rivals.

The Cutting Edge: Chasing the Dream is the third and final installment in the Cutting Edge series that started with everyone's favorite 90s film about an ice skater and ex-hockey player who banter their way to the Olympics. The Cutting Edge: Chasing the Dream added an extra twist to the story by making the female lead a hockey player and the male lead is the one in need of a partner. The concept was cute, but there wasn't a lot of follow through.

The original movie The Cutting Edge was rated PG, but at a time when PG meant that you could include more adult themes. The character depth in the film was believable as you saw these characters evolve. In this film, because of the changed standards on movie ratings were limited on what could be discussed. Now, the film is meant for the family which means quite a bit is simplified for a younger audience and overall less believable.

Overall, fans of the original film will be glad to see references made to the original. The Pamchenko Twist makes another appearance along with an almost identical ending. However, like all sequels, the original will always be the best. The references to the original made the movie cute and worth watching once, but not good enough to stand on its own.

If you're a die hard fan looking for a cute movie, give this one a chance. However, if you're actually going to look at this movie with a realistic or slightly critical eye, you're not going to care for it one iota. If you're not sure - just stick to the original. It's the best by far.

The telefilm centers on ice skating's most eligible bachelor Zack Conroy (Matt Lanter), who suddenly becomes available when an accident causes his partner and ex-girlfriend to break her leg. He defies convention when he replaces her on the ice with newcomer Alejandra "Alex" Delgado (Francia Raisa), a comely hockey player whose fierce sportsmanship translates into fierce moves on the ice.

Zack's coach and choreographer can't deal with this new twist, however, and quits. Time is running out for the International Championships in Paris, so Zack turns to the once-famous skater Jackie Dorsey (Christy Carlson Romano) who mysteriously left the business for an early retirement. She takes on the challenge of mentoring this impossible team because she too once took a non-skater and made him an ice skating champ in "The Cutting Edge 2."

As with all "Cutting Edge" movies, the unlikely partners find that while training, they begin having feelings of the romantic variety for each other. Somehow, they must reconcile their moves on the ice with their relationship outside of the rink.

Great Movie if you've watched all the Cutting Edge movies. My daughter really enjoyed watching this movie, but she has also watched all the other ones as well. The story line is easy to follow, and the people who play the parts are excellent. The acting is very good, with only a few mishaps that I couldn't follow. I would recommend this moving for any teenager, or pre teen that enjoys ice skating or figure skating. Would be great to get all of these movies and have a girls night in.

It's cute enough to watch on a rainy afternoon. If you are a fan of the original The Cutting Edge, you will appreciate some of the story line continuity that follows the in the sequels. It's exactly what you expect, so if you have an interest in watching, watch it. The original is worthy of 5 stars so be sure to watch it too. You don't have to watch them in order.
