Best part of story, including ending: It's a spoof on "The Cutting Edge," and the costumes, music, and routines are parodied like crazy.

Best scene in story: When we are first introduced to Chazz, a sex symbol on the ice, and then Jimmy, who is the un-macho weakling with "graceful" moves.

Opinion about the main character: Chazz is an "ape" but acts more civilized when he realizes that his friendship and career is at stake.
