Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the developing relationship between Alex and James in this TV movie makes for plenty of innuendo and some sexual content. One scene shows the young couple engaged in a game of strip poker, which (predictably) ends with both of them in their underwear, and a passionate make-out scene fades away as he lays her down on a table and gets on top of her. Language is another concern; in addition to "damn," "hell," and "ass," there are also instances of name-calling like "hoochie" and "skank." The story does attempt to promote feel-good messages about dependability, teamwork, and going against the grain, but most of it is overshadowed by the romantic story.

Sexual Content

The relationship between Alex and James is fraught with sexual tension until the two admit their feelings for each other. A strip poker game ends with both of them in their underwear, and Alex often walks around in their shared apartment in revealing clothing. A few kisses culminate in what's implied to be a sexual encounter in a locker room.


James punches a teammate in the face, which gets him tossed off the national speed-skating team.


Numerous instances of "damn," "hell," and "ass," as well as name-calling like "skank," "hoochie," "whore," and "tool."

Social Behavior

The movie includes messages about being true to yourself, being dependable to others, and resisting pressure from others.
