Essentially the figure skating version of "The Taming of the Shrew." Moira Kelly plays a difficult figure skater who's too good for any of her male skating partners. That is until her coach gets desperate and pairs her with recently injured hockey player D.B. Sweeney. The taming portion of the story is fairly short, but the budding romance between the two is more of a star crosse story of snobs vs. slobs. During my video store clerk days this was a film that I never watched due to my dislike of romantic comedies, which really hasn't changed, but my like of Moira Kelly and D.B. Sweeney finally overcame that. The film was written by Tony Gilroy, who's go on to write major films like the Bourne films and "Michael Clayton" so despite it's feeble rom-com trappings, it's a plucky little script, ably directed by Det. Dave Starsky, Paul Michael Glaser. There's really nothing original here and it's completely predictable, but the film has two likable stars and it's all competently made, so you could do worse if you're in the mood for a light romantic comedy. This film did make me wonder what ever happened to these two leads. I really did like them back in the day. Sweeney came to my attention first in "Eight Men Out" as Shoeless Joe Jackson and I liked Moira Kelly in "Billy Bathgate" and "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me" (she was also really cute in "With Honors"). Since they're 90s heyday, they really haven't done too much of note, which is too bad because they are both quite good actors. Also, look fast for Michael "Colonel Saul Tigh" Hogan who has a bit part as a doctor. I didn't recognize him, but I immediately recognized his voice.
