Ice Castles Movie Reviewed

Flashback to 1978! This is a favorite movie. It has been quite awhile since I watched this movie and after I found it again on Amazon Prime this movie brought back the memories.

Ice Castles Movie

Love Story

Ice Castles is a love story set within the world of figure skating. Figure skater fans will appreciate the skating and love story fans will appreciate the old flame comes to the rescue storyline.

Figure Skating

The story contains plenty of figure skating and the competitive skating world is the backdrop for the love story. If you love to watch figure skating you will enjoy the figure skating scenes throughout the movie.


Ultimately this is a love story of persistence. Persistence to overcome, persistence to prevail and the persistence of how love can prevail.

  1. I do remember this movie and we enjoyed it a lot. We haven't seen this one in years. A nice trip down memory lane. We'll have to watch it again for sure. Thanks Tracey.

  2. Oh, what a fun trip down memory lane. Nice to know this movie is still available for viewing. I DO remember it, especially since I love watching ice skating. Thanks, Tracey.

  3. I didn’t see this movie way back when it was in theaters, but it sounds like one I would enjoy, especially since I’ve always adored figure skating.

  4. Oh I know my hubby and I will watch this one for sure. He and I love figure skating and watch it whenever it is on. So add a love story and you have me hooked for sure. Thanks Tracey for making me aware of this movie!

  5. It has been a really long time since I saw this movie, but what a wonderful reminder. I loved this movie when it came out and I also love that song. Time to look it up and watch again. Thanks for the reminder of a wonderful movie from the past that is worth watching again.

  6. I've seen it, but long ago. I could honestly watch it again and it would feel like it was new again. I trained as a figure skater for over ten years in my youth. It was a big part of my life, and can be a bit picky about the reality on the competitive side of things - however, now, later in life, I can simply enjoy the skating. Understanding the sport is something I'm grateful for. Great family movie.

  7. I have never seen this movie! From your review I think it is one I would enjoy.I like watching figure skating and a "love story of persistence" sounds intriguing. Thank you for introducing me to a new movie! :)
