And here I've been watching comedies under the impression that they needed plot and, well, comedy
The first movie Jim Carrey ever made, and the biggest surprise found herein is that the man actually got(or had) a career after it. The story revolves around two friends in the mountains, one of them there for a woman. They also go skiing. Yup, it's essentially Dumb & Dumber(yes, I realize that that came out more than a decade later, release dates are not the point), only, you know, not funny... at all. The cinematography is dull. The editing is lazy. To paraphrase Mystery Science Theater 3000: "This movie establishes the *heck* out of its location!" Had all of the shots of the area been taken out of the film, the running time might drop a noticeable percentage, although the same could be said for the music performances, but at least the music was reasonably good(really the only thing I can think of to say anything positive about). Technically speaking, this is just ugly. Film quality is poor and sound is no better. The humor is just not funny. Carrey spends much of the time doing impressions, but he's more embarrassing than entertaining to watch. The film keeps throwing celebrities at you, I guess to make up for, well, having nothing else to offer. The pacing is nonexistent. The running time is one hour, and this still manages to be a trial to sit through. What tiny iota of actual, bona-fide plot there is manages to be powerfully derivative, unoriginal and bland. Dialog is carelessly used for exposition, and there is done less than nothing to hide this fact. In the end, the whole thing just comes off as a long commercial for Club Med. The good news about this movie? It ends. I recommend this to, heck, I don't know, people who hate Carrey and want to see him at what could be argued to be his worst. 1/10
