Goofs

When the two arrive in Aspen from Detroit, they have the scenic Maroon Bells behind them. The road behind them doesn't go to Detroit, it continues for about a mile and ends at the Maroon Bells Wilderness. They would have been looking at a bunch of trees. Also, the road has a bunch of snow on it but in the next scene, where they show Ajax, there's no snow on the road. See more »

not as horrible as 4.7 suggests
6 August 2001 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

Bored and not able to sleep, I caught this film on late night television last night. I was intrigued by the opening credits, especially when I saw the names of fine Canadian actor Paul Gross and another favourite Trevor Eve, who starred in the wonderful British mystery series Heat of the Sun. I am also a fan of the old Chicago Hope, and it was nice to see Peter Berg in a very different role.

I am not a ski buff, and this film is not Citizen Kane. However, I found myself enjoying this flawed piece of work very much. Sure, the plot is goofy, implausible, predictable, and full of discontinuities. But I genuinely liked the heroes, took pleasure in their successes, felt sadness in their setbacks. Other reviewers have commented already on the gorgeous location photography and the skiing.

With commercials, this film ran almost 2.5 hours on TV, and I had little difficulty sitting through it. Sure, we all knew there would be a happy ending and the good guy would get the girl, but it still was an enjoyable bit of viewing on the way.

Worth a look if you are not a ski buff but like mindless romance/action. Must-see if skiing is your life.
