A Bad Movie That's Also Fun!
1 December 2000 | by (Amarillo, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is one of those rare films that's so bad, it's almost good! A "beach party" flick that gets moved to the ski slopes, it's full of cliches of that genre: cool guys trying to score with scantily-clad ladies; scantily-clad ladies who seem to be around only to satisfy the needs of the cool guys; bad guys trying to muscle in on the action, only to get roughed-up by the cool guys; bad dancing to bad rock-and-roll (although a couple of the songs were written by Tommy Boyce and Bob Hart who had a hit in the '60's with "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight"). Actually, it all adds up to some campy fun!

I saw this film on the "Late Late Show" 20+ years ago and it stuck with me all these years. I could never remember the name of it and just knew it as "the movie where two guys ran a ski lodge with a bar that served only Cokes." Then one Saturday night about a year ago, this movie was shown on American Movie Classics' "American Pop". I was so surprised and excited that I recorded it when it was shown again about 3 AM!

Sure, this movie is hokey, cheesy, pretentious and even downright bad. It's also entertaining and a lot of fun- give it a try!
