Movie Info

The world of competitive figure skating takes a pratfall in this satiric comedy. Professor Robinson (Chris Hogan) is a documentary filmmaker whose latest project presents an in-depth look at three figure skaters hoping to someday rise from the lowest rungs of amateur competition into the ranks of the U.S. Olympic Team. Robinson's subjects are Veda Tilman (Barret Swatek), a high-strung young woman who suffers from an eating disorder; J.C. Cain (A.J. Langer), a chain-smoking trailer-park refugee with more than her share of attitude; and Wendy Wodinski (Marissa Winokur), whose rotund build would make her seem like an unlikely contender for a skating championship. As Veda, J.C., and Wendy train for their next match, seen-it-all Zamboni driver Phil (Jason Alexander) offers his perspective on the action. On Edge features cameos from noted comic actors Kathy Griffin, Michael McKean, and Wendie Malick, as well as appearances by real-life skating champions Scott Hamilton, Kristi Yamaguchi, Tai Babilonia, Randy Gardner, Steven Cousins, and Peter Carruthers.

...the characters eventually become endearing enough to keep us engaged through the film's many unsuccessful moments of comedy.

Audience Reviews for On Edge


(**): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] Not bad, but there just isn't enough laughs here for me to recommend it. Fair at best.


Very very funny and perceptive mockumentary on the figure skating industry. The performances are dead on perfect, great pace, finely directed and a highly entertaining movie. Definitely a must see!

:rotten: On Edge was a disappointment. I don't even know what I thought it was gonna be. Basically it's making fun of figure skating. It would have been better if the jokes were actually funny. :fresh: Shattered Glass was very good. This movie follows the rise and fall of Stephen Glass who was exposed as a fraudulent journalist. Hayden Christensen is proving that he can do emotion well. I know lots of people aren't impressed with him but these are where he shines as an actor in my opinion. He shows the emotional instability of the journalist so well. The movie doesn't show all journalists as friends. It shows how cutthroat that business can become.
