Would the background be the Olympics? Nats? Worlds? GP?
Would it be a love story? A hetero or homosexual one?
Frankly, I've yet to be satisfied by anything I've seen in the real world. They are either too melodramatic like Ice Castles, or too silly like Blades of Glory. And the in-between ones aren't much better. The one that I did actually enjoy and consider to be the best was the French My Life on Ice, a forgotten low-budget affair, but really well-acted.
Why can't Hollywood get it right? Should we expect them too? They do seem to make great movies and TV shows about other sports.
