The movie was a good idea: recreating the halcyon days of the Crazy Canuck ski team. I liked the 70s clothes and hair, the story had potential. However, the more I watched the movie, the more irritated I became. Everything was slanted to make Ken Read look so much better than the other skiers, including the two who won Olympic medals. Read was so much wiser, more intelligent and better-looking, we were supposed to believe. This puzzled me until I looked up the movie and discovered it was based on a book by Read. The actor in the Read role was far more compelling than the other actors; you just wanted to look at him & not the others. (Someone noted that the Dave Irwin actor was made to look like Bubbles from the Trailer Park Boys.) I think Jungle Jim Hunter got shortchanged in this film, as did Steve Podborski. I didn't mind the predictable soundtrack or the acting, just the slant.
