Storyline

Bus loads of teenagers arrive to the ski resort. Each one is eager to get out on the slopes to ski and score. One problem; the owner has all the prices jacked up, secretly ripping people for the passed two years he has been in charge. The police don't do anything because the Sheriff is in on the cover-up. The teens feel their only chance to even the score is at a skiing tournament where the winner is picked to get a free trip to Hawaii. The horny teens get a terrific idea.

Too tame to be any fun
26 February 2002 | by (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

"Snowballing" is a movie with a lot of camp potential, unfortunately it seems to aspire to be something more. No chance, guys, sorry. It's spring break, and a busload of "kids" (creepily played by 20-somethings) have arrived for a week on the slopes, and a vaguely defined competition. All the character paradigms are here. We've got the wacky jokester, well played by Steven Tash (who also had a small but memorable role in "Ghostbusters" as the student who gets shocked), the two everymen, the jock with blow-dried hair, the pretty girl, the pretty girl's fat friend, and scores of irrationally horny women, and even the movie artwork featuring an illustration of the guys surrounded by the said horny women. All the ingredients for a great campy film are here, but then the movie wastes it's time with a subplot about corruption within the local resort ownership and law enforcement. These scenes grind the movie to a halt. Fortunately, there are still moments of awful brilliance, the pretty girl's overweight friend character, Bonnie, is a joke. She's content to live vicariously through her pretty friend not for any real reason, but because the screenwriter didn't have the guts to pair her up with somebody. It's also a treat to see the the impossibilities that the movie uses to tie up the plot neatly. I won't get into specifics, but it requires the suspension of the known laws of physics, medicine, and human behavior. If you're looking for a film that's so bad it's good, I'd look elsewhere. "Snowballing" takes itself too seriously to be any fun; it just doesn't know it's role.
