Ice Princess | 2005 | G | - 3.3.1

A bright young woman (Michelle Trachtenberg) is entering her senior year of high school, thinking she has her life all planned out: pressured by her strong-willed mother (Joan Cusack), she's working on a Physics project and is on the fast track to Harvard University. But then she discovers that she is a very gifted figure skater -- and that's where her passion really lies. Also with Kim Cattrall, Hayden Panettiere and Trevor Blumas. Directed by Tim Fywell. [1:32]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A teenage girl and boy kiss in a few scenes.
 Teenage girls wear skating costumes that are short, revealing thighs and matching underpants, and low-cut with sheer fabric inlays that reveal cleavage and backs. A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage, and teenage girls wear low-cut tops that reveal cleavage.
 Teenage girls and boys dance at a party. Teenage girls admire two young men as they walk by. A teenage girl says to another teenage girl, "You look kinda hot."

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Two teenage girls run into each other, knocking shoulders together. Two teenage girls argue, and one takes a swing at the other.
 A skater crashes into a wall and falls onto the ice, a skater trips and falls on the ice, and another skater falls on the ice; more skaters fall on the ice in several other scenes, with no serious injuries. Beginner skaters wear padded pants and fall repeatedly, and one falls very hard causing the padding to explode out of the pants.
 A teenage girl stumbles and steps into a bucket of ice. A teenage boy slides along a cable and through an open window. A woman talks about having caused another skater to fall and it is implied that the skater was injured.
 A woman and her teenage daughter argue, a woman threatens a young man, and a young man yells at a teenage girl.
 A skater removes her boots to expose very bloody blisters on her feet.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
