Trivia

The character of David Marshack was originally scripted, and played out as David Marshall. However, feeling the name was too bland, Marshall was dubbed over with Marshack; unfortunately, the mouth movements of the other characters do not hide this fact as well as the director would have liked. Nor were the visual cues changed: at just under 1 hour into the film, the place card for David Marshall can be clearly seen on the leader board, just as Marshack slides to a halt beneath it.

Goofs

As Reid & Section 1 enter Section 8's room to warn them, they can be heard saying that "the place is a dump", but no one is moving their lips. See more »

Bad acting, stupid story, gratuitous nudity -- I LOVE IT!!!
11 July 2001 | by (NY, USA) – See all my reviews

I was just browsing my friend's movie collection and came across "Ski School". I almost put it down without even saying anything because I thought it was gonna be a dumb movie about skiing competitions, but I asked him about it and he said "It's funny, and it's got naked women in it." As SOON as I heard that, I shoved it in. To my surprise, it was a pretty good movie. As many have said, it's a very quotable movie: "In order to be the best, you must lose your mind!" -- "Welcome to my kingdom, I will bed you all before the night is through!" -- "You, get beer! You, get...beer! You, get...laid!" -- and many, many others. With a combination of non-stop jokes, partying, naked women, and skiing, this is definitely the perfect comedy for guys.

And also to my pleasant surprise, it has an awesome soundtrack -- they play 2 songs from one of my favorite bands, Lock Up, which is guitarist Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine's old band -- "Punch Drunk" and "Half Man, Half Beast". If you haven't seen this movie, you MUST! It deserves the publicity. 10/10 for entertainment value.
