The first cut of the film was 130 minutes long. However, 40 minutes of scenes were left on the cutting room floor, for a subsequent cut of the film. The deleted scenes were of the characters lost in the mountains, who were considering cannibalism in order to survive. See more »
Follow-up to smash hit "Les Bronzés" with virtually the same cast and director. This time of course the setting is not a tropic Club Med place but a winter-sports resort in the French Alps.
Except for a rather annoying 'seventies' disco-style soundtrack, movie hasn't dated at all. Among the many hilarious highlights there is the local "wine" tasting scene and the encounter in a remote cabin with some horny Italians.
Almost everyone involved went on to become a major star in French cinema, as Christian Clavier ("Les Visiteurs" and recently Napoleon Bonaparte in a prestigious TV-series) and Gerard Jugnot (lead in the 2005 Oscarnominated "Les Choristes"). But also director Patrice Leconte became one of France's most respected directors (Le mari de la Coiffeusse,Ridicule,"Les Grands Ducs", etc...).
If you like this try also the crazy "Le Péré Noel est une Ordure", made a few years later and again with virtually the same cast.
