Cutting Edge's Past
13 March 2004 | by jacquelinekmckeeSee all my reviews

This film in it's time was and is one of my all time favorites. I have search the internet over looking for the quality of acting i found to be so real when i was a child watching this film. I loved the beginning, the middle, and the end. It helped me realize that love only lasts as long as it is supposed to. The time you are given you should appreciate. I wished that there was a channel out there that only played the classic tv movies that i have never forgotten and still want to see today. Boy loved hockey, wanted to continue to skate and the girl snotty as always getting rid of partners like dirty clothes. And the time and effort they put into working together, was so well worth it because it turned into love. In the end she stood alone and continued for the love that they had together.

Well worth seeing.
