Kate is a rather spoiled figure skating champion, also skating in the winter Olympics, who has an unexpected fall which she blames on her partner. She is very demanding and has a hot temper, and it becomes increasingly difficult for her trainer to find anyone willing to skate with her. Yet her father wants her to win a medal at the next Olympics.
Anton, Kate's coach, is almost in despair when he thinks of suggesting that Doug re-train as a figure skater. Sparks fly when they meet, and Kate is very disparaging of this working class ice hockey player. However he takes her disdain as a challenge, and gradually becomes very proficient indeed...
It's all rather predictable, rom-com style, with the amusing moments being the spars between the two main protagonists, and the romantic element quite low-key. Naturally Kate and Doug are going to fall for each other in the end - the chemistry between them on ice is incredible! - but neither wants to admit it, as they spar like siblings.
There's some great skating and some mild tension as they head towards the competitions, and I thought it was an enjoyable film, in a low-key kind of way. I'm not entirely sure why Amazon recommended this to me, but am glad it did. My husband and our twenty-something son enjoyed it too.
