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

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

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.

Pure formula, but nevertheless an enjoyable triple klutz.

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

Audience Reviews for Ice Princess

Through all the cheesiest Disney Channel flicks to the big screen tear jerkers, "Ice Princess" comes along and falls somewhere in the middle. After going through a lifetime of handwork at school, Casey embarks on a school physics assignment that sends her on a life changing journey to find her true passion (figure skating). As she tries and tries, her passion just never came through, but when she factored in physics and calculated her moves and landings, things began to look up for her. This film is about self-discovery at it's core, and even though the dialogue is cheesy as hell, the actresses could have been better cast, and the story could have been toned-down just a tad, I did enjoy myself. "Ice Princess" is family fluff that shouldn't bother anyone if they know what they are in for. Recommended to young kids and teenage girls, which is what the demographic is anyways.

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

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.
