Sir George fakes his own death so that his estate will go to the winners of the "Megathon", a pseudo-Olympics event. His three step-children are forced to compete in a variety of winter-type sports against top athletes representing other companies George owed debts to, so that they can gain their inheritance.

Volkswagen released 2,500 special edition Golf cars based on this movie. In 1990 VW released, to the German market only, the mk2 Golf Fire and Ice Edition. They were all finished in a very dark purple metallic and had probably the most outrageous interior trim VW have ever made The specification of the Fire and Ice models was as follows: Metallic lacquer paint finish "Dark Violet pearl", Green tinted glass, 15 inch "Estoril" alloys with 185/55 tires, Double headlight grill with black VW badge, Colour coded big bumpers with deep front spoiler, Clear front indicators and darkened rear lights, Large Fire and Ice logo on the rear quarter panel, Pink rear "Golf" badge, Height adjustable sports seats, Seats and trim panels in custom Fire and Ice cloth, Various interior Fire and Ice logos.

I actually was expecting an action movie when I saw Roger Moore, but it was easy to tell in the first few minutes that this was not a pure action flick. There's plenty of action, but most of it seems like they just let a bunch of (albeit) good skiers, kayakers, parasailers, etc. go nuts while they filmed.
The plot was a bit weak for allowing this kind of action to go on.
The biggest disappointment though was the comedy. In places it was way too much and other places seemed to not go far enough.
Anyway, it's worth a watch if you're an extreme athlete or like some cool stunts, but definitely not a keeper in my movie collection.
