Melissa Joan Hart,
Doug Dorsey is a hockey player for the US team in the 1988 winter Olympics. After a vicious game against West Germany. We then see figure skater, Kate Moseley doing her program and falling. Both have fought hard to get to the Olympics, and suddenly their dreams have been shattered. Kate, a temperamental but talented figure skater, has had many partners, until her coach recruits hockey player Dorsey. Through the difficult training of 15 hours of skating a day, they finally prepare for nationals and the Olympics. A romance blooms, and their final show could make or break them as they try to achieve their dreams of Olympic gold.Written by

The interaction of Kate & Doug in the film has some resemblance to that of Kate & Petruchio in William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and Beatrice & Benedick in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. See more »
While they are in France for the Olympics watching the first US team skate, as the announcer is reading the scores in French. The scores on the board do not match the numbers the announcer is saying. He says cinq sept meaning 5.7, however the number in 5.8 or cinq huit. The number 5.7 does not appear on the score board even though the announcer calls it out. See more »
In Region 1, the earlier DVD (with only a trailer as an extra) is anamorphically enhanced, properly framed, and 101 minutes. The "Gold Medal Edition" DVD later released is non-anamorphic, missing a significant amount of picture on the left, right, and bottom, and only 97 minutes because it is time compressed somehow (the same way 25 fps PAL video is sped up from a 24 fps film source).

The Cutting Edge is a classic movie and one which I never get tired of watching.
The chemistry between Moira Kelly and D.B. Sweeney really sells this picture, even before you see the impressive scenery and fantastic skating sequences.
The script is filled with quotable gems, (It's not like his nose was perfect) and what could be a fairly thin story (that, OK, has been done before) is lifted firmly out of the cliche zone by first class direction, a thumping early 90's pop soundtrack and breathtaking choreography.
I can't fault this movie - it's one of my top five - and would recommend it as a family favourite.
This movie gets a very enthusiastic 10/10 from me.
