Matt Keeslar can barely stand up on a pair of speed skates...
Given the technician that Jansen was on the ice they could have at least gotten a real speedskater and done long shots. Other than that the acting was fair to middlin and the story sentimental to maudlin.

I happen to think there is a real and interesting story in the true life of Dan Jansen.
