The Cutting Edge: Fire and Ice is an 2010 American drama and romance television film and the sequel to the 2008 film The Cutting Edge: Chasing the Dream. The film is the fourth and final installment of The Cutting Edge series. Francia Raisa reprises her role as Alexandra "Alex" Delgado, from the third film. The film was produced for the ABC Family cable channel, which aired on March 14, 2010. The film's subtitle "Fire and Ice" is a reference to the characters played by Will Ferrell and Jon Heder respectively, in the 2007 figure skating parody film Blades of Glory.
Alejandra "Alex" Delgado's figure skating career came to an abrupt halt after her partner (on and off the ice) became injured. As their love affair cooled, a heart-broken Alex stopped competing and turned to teaching. Enter James McKinsey, the smoldering bad boy of speed skating, who has had fiery Alex in his sights as a skating partner ever since he was banned from speed skating. There aren't many girls who say no to James, and Alex may well be the first. However, James pushes her buttons, challenging her like no one else and her fighting spirit returns. She agrees to be his partner and they begin a grueling practice regimen fueled (and occasionally derailed) by their own tempestuous relationship which heats up as they get closer to competition. But will their passion destroy Alex's chance to bring home the gold again?
