I thought this was a great movie. The storyline and the acting were excellent. The fact that Taylor Firth (Lexi) is a skater who did her own skating was a plus. This movie is a keeper!

This was an incredible DVD. The last person in our library who took it out watched it four times, so I decided to watch it and was just as impresed. The story unwinds easily, the actors are terrific and the messages of hope, love, and persistence are very clear. A plus factor is the music behind many of the scenes. Highly recommended!

I put average in the "meets expectaions" box because I didn't think that it would be as good as the original but, I was surprised! They kept the original song in it and the acting was very good. The iceskating? It was magnificent! It was a pleasure to watch. It will be a pleasure to watch over & over again.

A good story of perseverance, however, due to the age of the girl, there was way too much romance to be a good example for young Christian ladies who are trying to remain pure. The skating was wonderful to watch and I was glad to see a bit of modesty in the costumes, as not all skating outfits are modest.

Excellent movie to show that nothing is impossible if one has the encouragement and the drive to overcome a set back in life.
