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.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it...
22 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never saw Ski school because I was looking for Citizen Cane on the slopes. I saw it because Dean Cameron was in it and that was enough reason for me. I wasn't disappointed at all. It's about this ski team (Section 8) of misfits who basically ski very well but also love to play practical jokes on the uptight ski team. They get threatened with being thrown off the slopes and must retaliate. The best thing about this movie (other than the multi-talented team of Dean Cameron and Stuart Fratkin) is that most of the script was written by them. The movie plays like a bunch of guys goofing around (Helium theater is my favorite). in short, this film kicks a**.
