If this movie were any more of a dog, you'd have to rent it from a kennel.
29 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

The ad copy on the box says this is "the ultimate ski comedy" and compares it to "Hot Dog - The Movie". WRONG!!!

About the only funny thing in this is the feud between the title character "Reno" and a bunch of Yahoos called the "Kukamungas"...and after watching the movie twice I still can't figure out what they actually contribute to the plot. The premise -- a 45-year old ski bum hits the pro dual-slalom circuit and does a Tiger Woods number on it -- is hokey beyond belief by itself. Toss in a down-on-his-luck conman ("Doc") and add a touch of mental telepathy, and you've got a turkey so confusing that even the ski racing sequences (although well filmed by 1984 standards) can't save it.

Watch "Hot Dog -- The Movie". Watch "Ski Patrol". Watch any Warren Miller ski flick. But run, do not walk, away from "Reno and the Doc".
