There's nothing wrong with that old fashioned, squeaky-clean Disney formula. When it's well done, it can be a refreshing break from the crude comedy of most family films today. Yet Ice Princess is not particularly well done.
Trachtenberg is thoroughly believable, an unspoiled charmer. Her rise from clumsy girl to someone brimming with confidence and the author of one heckuva physics project, she's a pretty cool princess to root for.
Trachtenberg gives a sweetly compelling performance as Casey, as does the wonderfully kooky Cusack as her mother, but their charms can't save this painfully unoriginal movie from coming out of a triple toe loop and landing flat on its bottom.
