Downhill


AVAILABLE NOW!

RATED R

86 MINUTES



Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell star in this outrageous comedy about a family's misadventures during a ski vacation in the Alps. Billie and Pete (Louis-Dreyfus and Ferrell) are looking forward to a delightful week at a European mountain resort with their two sons. But Pete's reaction to what turns out to be a non-threatening avalanche is different from Billie's, and suddenly the couple's marriage seems to be on ice. Unable to put the avalanche incident out of their minds, Pete and Billie spend separate time with a lineup of characters: Pete skis and binge-drinks with his coworker (Zach Woods), who's at the euphoric beginning of a relationship with his hashtag-obsessed girlfriend (Zoe Chao), and Billie gets unexpected advice from a sensuous ski instructor (Giulio Berruti) and a sex-crazed hotel concierge (Miranda Otto). The time apart and cringe-worthy encounters help bring perspective to Pete and Billie, who realize they must decide whether or not they can move forward as a family. Filled with dark humor, realism and believable performances, Downhill is a refreshing exploration of love, family, instinct and expectations.





REVIEW:
Meh.
Not what I expected at all.
I saw skiing and knew the hubby would watch. Then I saw Will Ferrell and I was in! I didn't even look to see what it was about. 
*Insert kick in the butt here.*
I did notice the movie was dubbed a comedy drama. After watching it, it was definitely more drama and less comedy. I did laugh like twice, but it was still a little disappointing for me.
As the movie ended, I was a little put off. The ending was so weird. Too weird. Don't like at all. UGH.
You'd think a Will Ferrell movie would be funny, but nope! I'm not ready for serious Will. I don't think anyone is. 
Other than the most beautiful  scenery a movie could offer, I wasted an hour an a half of my time.


1.5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
