Trivia

A "Siskel and Ebert Fruit Cart" appears in the movie in reference to Roger Ebert's glossary of movie terms where, under the title "Fruit Cart!", it's explained that during any chase scene involving a foreign or ethnic locale, a fruit cart will be overturned during the chase, and an angry peddler will run into the middle of the street to shake his fist at the hero's departing vehicle.

Goofs

In the last few minutes of the film the characters Stanley and Tiana are riding together within a convoy of snow machines when Stanley hears calls for help. To get Tiana to stop and pull over he mistakenly calls Tiana by her real name, "Tess", he says. In his next line Stanley clearly calls her Tiana as he should. See more »

happy memories
1 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It may not appeal to many viewers but I have always loved this film. To me it really captures the energy that being out on the slopes generates. There have been some awful reviews but its a comedy, its bound to be a little stupid & it gets my vote every time. There are many scenes that get me laughing each time & i've had the same VHS for years, since it was out in the video stores. My favourite if i had to choose would be the singing contest that Stanley and the ice man storm with their vibrant energy & hilarious attitude. I'm an art student and its a favourite of all my friends. My only complaint is that its not on DVD, all the out-takes, bloopers, interviews (there must have been some) and all the extras that everyone loves on DVD. Its a must see & don't compare it to conventional comedy thats now so old hat that its not funny anymore, this is a film that stands out on its own & deserves more respect than it had before. Re-release it on DVD please!
