Storyline

Naive corn-pone skiing wunderkind picks up beautiful hitchhiking bimbo on way to ski competition. Once at the ski competition he is taunted in the daytime and laid at night, by different people. Four letter words, stoopid ethnic stereotypes (the Asian skiier's dancing looks like martial arts, of course) and skinny naked women with badly dated hairstyles abound. Not worth seeing except on cable -- the nudity is the big selling point and if you're not embarrassed to rent a movie with this title, you might as well go a little further and rent something honestly labeled as smut, instead of off-and-on nudity masquerading as "comedy." Written by Britain P. Woodman <britain@emunix.emich.edu>

Goofs

At the start of the Chinese Downhill, everyone is wearing the same outfits that have been worn throughout the entire movie. For some reason Harkin's distinctive (if not signature) blue and black stretch pants have changed to black with red piping. It seems unlikely that the farm boy would buy new ones just for the downhill. Let alone ones that are the same color scheme as his nemesis. See more »

Quotes

Harkin Banks: The Kick-Ass Blaster.
Race Official: I've never heard of that, what is it?
Harkin Banks: It's my jump.
Race Official: Well you'll have to tell me what it is before I can let you go down.
Harkin Banks: It's a twistin' triple.
Race Official: A twistin' triple? I've never even *seen* one of those done before. Are you qualified to do that?
Harkin Banks: We'll I'm gonna do it.
Race Official: [shakes his head] Allright... go ahead.
Harkin Banks: [smiles and skiis off]

A FUN '80'S COMEDY, AND A FINE EXAMPLE OF THE POST-"ANIMAL HOUSE" RAUNCHCOM GENRE
21 March 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this one in a Fairfield, Ct theater with a bunch of fellow tanked-up theater circuit employees, and we loved it! Sure it's stupid! Who cares? My cardinal rule with comedy is that it doesn't have to be highbrow to be funny; if a comedy makes you laugh, it has succeeded.

The predictable "snobs vs slobs" comedy is given the novel twist of having the slobs actually be highly proficient at their field of expertise, in this case "hot dog" skiing. While the comedy is pretty standard, the scenes on the slopes are standouts, particularly the spectacular Chinese Downhill race. And let us not forget that living proof of the existence of the Goddess, Shannon Tweed. The only thing that she's missing is the giant seashell that she looks like she stepped out of!!!

As for the heroes of the film, if you've ever gone seriously skiing, you know these guys. The raging alcoholic, the stoner, the foreign expert, the annoying new-kid-on-the-slopes/phenom, the thermonuclear ski goddess... They're all here. And don't miss the scene that features Mitch ryder's rockin' cover of Prince's "When You Were Mine." Kick back some tallboys and check it out!
