I honestly did not like this movie and I fast fwd. it quite a bit. The people were such losers and Tonya kept going back for more abuse and became abusive herself. Too much 'f' in all the dialogue. Could any group of people really be so horrible? This is Tonya's version of events and in her own words "it's not my fault". Being banned from competing or coaching figure skating in the U.S. for life is exactly what she deserved. Actions have consequences!

Too many "F" bombs. A young gal with lots of talent surrounded by losers. Tanya was one tough cookie. I cannot post the words to describe Tanya's mother. Bonus features interesting. Margot who played Tanya was also the producer. Good skater.

It is dark and all the people around Tonya Harding are horrible people, but I have a new found respect for her. This film is five star superb. It wasn't what I expected.

Surprisingly, "the incident" wasn't what this story was about for me. It was untold story the media never told. Of a poor girl, who against all odds, competed at the Olympics. Through her strained relationship with her mother, her abusive husband, and battling unfair treatment by the powers that be in the skating world...which still couldn't tarnish her talent and determination. I think anyone else in her skates would have given up a long time ago!

I watched. I waited. Nothing good happened. Dark is good description. Ugly film about the worst side of all the people portrayed.

Quotes from mom:
Tonya's my 5th child from husband number 4. She was always a handful. And I guess we spoiled her. Which is a goddamned hat trick when you haven't got shit your entire life. Still, I drove her to competitions, practices. I sewed her all her costumes. But to her, her mother's a monster. Generally people either love Tonya or are... not big fans.
Just like people either love America or are not big fans. Tonya was totally American.
===
They want a wholesome American family? ... Well. It's not gonna be easy.. But I could pull that outta my ass.
===
I like your hair pulled back like that. You look young.
-I'm 23, mom.
===
I'm not here to tell you I told you so. I'm not..
-Why are you here? What do you want?
I want you to know... I don't know. That I am on your side.

I'm trying to skate and I keep... falling in front of everyone. While... Nancy gets her own private rink where someone catches her before she falls.
===
You're a taker. Every cent I made went to your skating and you took it. What do you want?
-Jesus!
Well this was a stupid fxcking idea..
-Was anything I ever did good enough for you?
You were soft.
- At three?
I made you a fighter. You never had a chance...
-You fxcked with my head. You made me think I could skate best when my life was shxt. And now my life is shzt. You made that fzcking real for me. I don't want that!
You would've picked it in a heartbeat! You should be thanking me. Not blaming me.
-Did you...? I mean when I was a kid, did you ever love me? Or anything?
You think Sonia Henie's mother loved her? Poor fzckin' you. I didn't stay home making apple brown Bettys. No, I made you a champion! Knowing you'd hate me for it. That's the sacrifice a mother makes. I wish I had a mother like me. Instead of nice. Nice gets you shzt.

Look, Nancy gets hit one time and the whole world shits... For me it was an all-the-time occurrence.
===
But there's no smoking on the ice.
-Oh well, I'll smoke it quietly then.
===
I hit her one time, with a hairbrush.
===
She stands out because she looks like she chops wood every morning.
===
Yeah, and I waitress full time to pay for your coaching.
- Yes, but she's not my child.
===
I don't know, Tonnie. I would never be with someone who fzckin' hit me.
- You hit dad.
That's different.
===
You skated like a graceless bull dyke! I was embarrassed for you.
-I'm sorry.
Your father's not paying alimony ya know? Every penny I make, every penny goes to your skating. And you weren't even fzcking trying.
-I said I was sorry.
Don't talk back to me.
===
I don't know what to tell you. Marrying the first idiot who says you're pretty. You fzck dumb. You don't marry dumb.

I was loved for a minute, then I was hated. Then I was just a punch line.
===
But do you think that CBS who was showin' the games was gonna let this ginormous
ratings fxcker not happen?
===
Your Honor. I don't have an education. All I know is skating. That's all I know. And I.. I'm no one... If I can't skate... I'm not... I mean, I'm not some monster. I just... I'm trying to do the best in what I know how to. ... please. Please! Just send me to jail and then I can still skate! Just send me to jail and then I can still skate...!
===
The people still wanted to see me. So I became a lady boxer. I mean, why not? Violence was always what I knew anyway. America, you know... They want someone to love... but they want someone to hate. And they want it easy. But what's easy? And the haters always say, Tonya Tell the truth. But there's no such thing as truth. I mean it's bullshxt. Everyone has their own truth.
