Theatrical Release: March 18, 2005
DVD Release: July 19, 2005


Torn between her dreams and her mother’s plans, Casey Carlyle (Michelle Trachtenberg) makes herself a better figure skater in Disney’s Ice Princess using physics, which has led to the improvement of several top-notch skaters. Carlyle is a geeky high-school student whose mother Joan (Joan Cusack) pushes her toward a college career at Harvard, but her passion is figure skating. A physics project takes her to an ice rink owned and managed by controversial former Olympian Tina Harwood (Kim Cattrall). Harwood’s daughter Gen (Hayden Panettiere) is one of the three elite skaters under her tutelage and rigorous training program. The hectic pace of skating, work and school takes a toll on Carlyle who is skating without her mother’s blessing. Over time, the geek evolves into a princess on ice who goes to the finals of a regional competition, but a victory may come at the cost of her relationship with her mother.

Dove Review

This is a great family movie. A girl (Casey) dreams of becoming an ice skater. She has the skills to do so but her mom wants her to go to Harvard. So the girl sneaks around going to practices. Eventually her mom finds out what she is doing. She isn’t happy with her at first but then she realizes it is her daughter’s dream and she supports her and starts to go to her practices and competitions.

It is a clean movie . The only things to mention is a boy and girl kiss a couple of times and there is minor childish name calling.
