Kate Mosely is a talented figure skater with a bad attitude and a lot to prove. Doug Dorsey is a talented hockey player who had some bad luck on the ice. Both passionate—and a little desperate—they reluctantly join forces to shoot for Olympic gold.



Boy meets girl, girl despises boy, boy doesn’t care that much for her either—that’s nothing new. But familiar doesn’t mean not d compelling, and The Cutting Edge finds that sweet spot. It was charming thirty years ago, and it maintains that charm with dazzling figure-skating sequences and a high-energy 90s dance soundtrack. Moira Kelly and D.B. Sweeney have easy chemistry that recalls the screwball romcom of a bygone Hollywood era. The style remains timeless until this day, and is a perfect title to stay cozy in a frigid and romantic February. See ya then!
