The Cutting Edge

Continuity mistake: When Doug and Kate are doing the short programme at the Nationals and they perform the side-by-side double axels, when Kate spins, the sole of her boot is wooden. When she lands the spin, it is black plastic.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the coach comes to recruit Doug, Doug is hanging upside down hammering nails. The nails change position several times.

Continuity mistake: In the first training montage, Kate changes clothing for a split second. Initially she is wearing a red outfit with black legwarmers. She changes to green lycra pants and black legwarmers, then back to the red dress and black legwarmers. You can also see Douglas' grey hoodie is swapped for a red top. (00:23:55)

Factual error: During the movie, Doug watches video from the previous Olympic competition. The skaters are shown performing in a darkened arena lit by spotlights. Special lighting effects like this are not allowed in competition. All competitions take place in a brightly lit arena.
