What Breaks The Ice


What Breaks The Ice

In WHAT BREAKS THE ICE, Sammy (Sofia Hublitz) lives in a small, quiet town known for attracting tourists from nearby cities during the summer months. Emily (Madelyn Cline) and her affluent parents arrive, and the two teens meet at a local convenience store. When Emily tries to shoplift from the store and gets caught by the store's attendants, Sammy covers for her, and a friendship is born. Emily quickly introduces Sammy to a world of partying and suggests that they make a pact: to both have sex for the first time that summer, but in the same room to keep each other safe. At first, Sammy is clearly uncomfortable with drinking and drug use, but her need for Emily's friendship starts to outweigh her morals. When Sammy catches her stepbrother, Travis (Joel Allen), sexually assaulting an intoxicated yet seemingly willing Emily at a party, Sammy pushes him to the ground, rendering him unconscious. The girls must decide what to do next, testing the depth of their friendship.

This is the classic story of an innocent teen pulled into partying and crime by an unlikely, troubled friend. (One is blonde and the other brunette -- can you guess which is the innocent one?) When Sammy and Emily meet, Emily's shoplifting is what "breaks the ice" in their friendship. But as their crime escalates, the ice breaks completely, and Sammy is left in the freezing water on her own.

Then a thing happens. No spoilers. But a young man ends up dead, and Emily and Sammy are involved. It is not a thriller, so if you decide to watch based on that premise, you may be disappointed, or you may hang around, and enjoy it for what it is, which is mostly a low-key exploration of friendship and relationships and growing up against a background that is less than welcoming to women. Timeless. Though also very specific in terms of date. As one over-dinner conversation reveals, the action here takes place against a background of Republican attempts to impeach President Clinton for doing whatever it was he did with Monica Lewinsky.

In a time where women and men are not believed when reporting their rapes and assaults, it feels incredibly irresponsible for the film to end this way. Overall, Cline and Hublitz did what they could with the script, but What Breaks the Ice is definitely a movie you can skip.

The video begins with Spears wearing a short black bodysuit and knee-high black boots, standing on the roofs of a futuristic city. As the first verse begins, she breaks into a research facility and battles with suited henchmen. Spears ends up gaining access to a highly secured laboratory and walks through aisles of clones held in liquid cocoons. She sees that one is a clone of her, kisses her and plants a bomb on the tank. After this, Spears infiltrates the base of the apparent villain, kissing him, and then destroying him, revealing him to be a robot also. From there, she dodges a bullet and sets off a panic among the newly arrived henchmen, meanwhile the bomb's timer runs lower and lower. Next, there is a wide shot of the building exploding, while Spears is jumping and "Victory" is depicted on the side of the structure. The video ends with the phrase "To be continued...".[34]
