The Cutting Edge (1992)
IMDb plot summary: The movie follows Kate, a tempermental but talented figure skater, through many partners until finally her coach resorts to recruiting a hockey player. Through the difficult training of 15 hours of skating a day they finally prepare for Nationals and the Olympics. A romance is budding and their final show could bend or break them as they try to achieve their dreams of an Olympic Gold medal.
Directed by Paul Michael Glaser. Starring D.B. Sweeney, Moira Kelly, Roy Dotrice, and Terry O'Quinn.
Well, this is fairly charming. Both the characters are interesting and somewhat likable, and their chemistry really works. It didn't blow me away, but I got invested in the story very quickly and enjoyed watching it play out. Probably worth a shot, especially if you typically like romances or movies about figure skating.
