Critic Reviews for Ice Princess

All Critics (112) | Top Critics (37) | Fresh (54) | Rotten (50) | DVD (26)

The surprisingly twisty plot skates along with zero friction, giving new meaning to 'Disney on Ice.'

Village Voice
Top Critic

There are far too many cringe-inducing clichés and gaping plot holes.

Full Review… | March 21, 2005
Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

The movie does have a strong sense of the special charisma and beauty of these young demons of grace who ride the thin line between dance and sport with unerring precision.

Washington Post
Top Critic

Trachtenberg is thoroughly believable, an unspoiled charmer. Her rise from clumsy girl to someone brimming with confidence and the author of one heckuva physics project, she's a pretty cool princess to root for.

Watching this week's world figure skating championships in Moscow, one wonders why the scriptwriters went to such artificial lengths. There's drama enough in the sport as it is.

A savvier movie (and script) might have been able to mix some grays into its black and white palette.

Sweet, inspiring story tween girls will love.

Common Sense Media

This dumb-as-a-stump teen girl coming-of-age movie envisions a high school physics geek (Michelle Trachtenberg) who turns into an ice skating pro as a result of her knowledge of physics.

Full Review… | June 6, 2009

Pure formula, but nevertheless an enjoyable triple klutz.

Bangor Daily News (Maine)

It's not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but neither is it a sustenance-free afternoon at the Ice Capades

Full Review… | August 22, 2005
Film Freak Central

A história e a protagonista têm seu charme, mas a direção esquemática de Fywell e o roteiro repleto de clichês praticamente anulam o potencial do filme.

August 13, 2005
Cinema em Cena

...things are so routine we can guess every action a cliché in advance.

Full Review… | July 20, 2005
Movie Metropolis

..while star Michelle Trachtenberg delivers a sincere, engaging performance, there's not a whole lot here to hold the interest of anyone outside the film's target demographic.

Reel Film Reviews

Seems like a lot we have seen before, but it is still a good clean movie of finding your dream? Come and find out as she battles with the best.

Full Review… | April 14, 2005
Entertainment Spectrum

It's formulaic stuff, but the film treats the conflicts seriously and possesses a sweet demeanor.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Though Disney's incessant promotion of Hilary Duff has made casual moviegoers run from teen-girl flicks as fast as they can, Ice Princess may bring a few back.

New Times

Little girls may go for this sort of thing. They won't notice the clunky pacing or the drippy dialogue or the limp plot or the stiff, awkward cameos.

Full Review… | April 5, 2005

While Ice Princess doesn't exactly deliver any surprises -- you can easily guess how it will end -- the movie doesn't always go where you expect it to, either.

Boxoffice Magazine

The Ice Princess is exactly the kind of film Disney made its reputation on...

Full Review… | March 25, 2005
Talking Pictures (U.S.)

Ice Princess, though somewhat clichéd, combines the fire of passion for a dream with the frost of unscrupulous reality.

March 25, 2005

Rife with cliches and sentimentality.

The movie's qualities are unexpectedly refreshing, making for a nice little entertainment that says something worth saying.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Among chick-competition movies, Bring It On still takes the gold; Ice Princess would be lucky to place

Full Review… | March 23, 2005

Pity the poor father or the younger brother forced to tag along and watch this mediocre piece of marketing to the Cinderella set

Full Review… | March 23, 2005

Aside from the extraordinary implausible nature of the plot, and the infinite string of cliches, Trachtenberg is surprisingly adorable, even though she has absolutely no chemistry with relative newcomer Blumas.

Audience Reviews for Ice Princess

Awful kids film. The music is the only thing that gives you any emotion in this film since the acting and narrative is dull.

Sophie Burgess

Super Reviewer

A chick flick that bored the crap out of me. This is not worth anyone time, even with a few good moments in the film.

Jim Careter

Super Reviewer

Such a great movie about following your heart & your dreams. Michelle Trachtenberg was awesome as was the rest of the cast.

Cassie Hill

Super Reviewer

I really enjoyed this. I love to watch people ice skate and the love between the two characters was beautiful. A really nice chick flick. A must see!
