Storyline

Pretty tomboy Kim Matthews, 19, used to be a champion skateboarder - but now she's stuck in a dead end job trying to support her Dad. Opportunity comes knocking in the form of a catering job in the one of the most exclusive chalets in the Alps. At first, Kim's baffled by this bizarre new world of posh people, champagne and skiing - but then she discovers snowboarding, and the chance to win some much-needed prize money at the big end-of-season competition. But before she can become a champion again, Kim's going to have to dig deep to overcome her fears. Hard enough, without the complicating factor of Jonny, her handsome - though spoken for - boss...

Quotes

Interviewer 2: You're a lovely girl, but I'm just not sure...
Kim: Let me try. You're just not sure I'm the right kind of girl for your clients. It's hard to say why exactly, but it's probably something to do with the fact that I'm not called Arabella, or Isabella, or anything-Bella. That I don't have hundred-quid highlights, perfect nails, I'm just guessing here. Expensively trimmed pubes. So even though I might be the only person with actual experience, and actual work in the actual real world, and you know I'd ...

Likable actors in predictable movie
15 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Kim Matthews (Felicity Jones) used to be a hot skateboarding champ. After the death of her mother, she mysteriously disappeared from skateboarding and takes a fast food job to support her father (Bill Bailey). She tries to get a catering job in an exclusive resort in the Austria for four months but her low rent ways don't fit the bill. Then a spot opens up and she's all there is. The posh world is baffling to her. Georgie (Tamsin Egerton) can't believe who the agency sent her as the new Chalet Girl. The family arrives with Jonny (Ed Westwick), his father Richard (Bill Nighy), his mother Caroline (Brooke Shields), his girlfriend Chloe and her brother Nigel (Nicholas Braun).

It's a very conventional movie with questionable setups. I know she doesn't want to skateboard but there has to be a better setup for it all. And they must be smoking something if they think holding back the reveal will elevate the emotions. Felicity Jones is suppose to be a tomboy but she has never given off that vibe in any of her movies. All she really does is wear less makeup and more regular clothes. She has to tomboy it up more. It's also too unbelievable that the agency sent her for the job. The father is silly. Couldn't they give him a disability that requires her to take care of him? I like a lot of the actors in this including Felicity Jones. They are bearable in this all too predictable movie. It is just relentlessly pushing the two leads together inevitably to their sappy relationship. This is a relationship that exists in movie montages. Other than taking no risks, there is nothing wrong with this. The rom is very predictable and the com is fairly bland.
