Movie Info

Figure skater Johnny Weir makes a name for himself as an Olympic champion on the ice and a controversial celebrity in the tabloids. Director David Barba shadows Weir for one year, documenting the competitions, training and inner turmoil that make up his daily existence. Weir refuses, in interviews, to answer questions regarding his rumored homosexuality, only fueling speculation about his private life. But Barba's film focuses on Weir's quest to once again prove himself at the Olympics.

  • Smartly structured, crisply lensed docu "Pop Star on Ice" is a fascinating portrait of outspoken Olympian and three-time U.S. figure skating national champion Johnny Weir.

    July 6, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Documentaries thrive on candor and intimacy, two qualities the film fatally lacks. Weir has a reputation as a wild child and a loose cannon with little concern for propriety, but he's awfully cautious here about what he reveals about himself.

    January 21, 2010 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Weir is indeed the epitome of the pop star, embodying a bubble-gum histrionics too addicted to any kind of adulation to ever actually take sides.

    January 20, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • If you're not already a member of the "Johnny's Angels" fan club, you might wonder why other equally outrageous athletes weren't bestowed with their own cinematic tributes.

    January 20, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • One part hagiography and two parts psychotherapy.

    January 20, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5
  • Pop Star on Ice doesn't so much follow figure skater Johnny Weir as offer him a platform on which to mouth off, punctuated with practice and competition footage.
