Goofs

In the last few minutes of the film the characters Stanley and Tiana are riding together within a convoy of snow machines when Stanley hears calls for help. To get Tiana to stop and pull over he mistakenly calls Tiana by her real name, "Tess", he says. In his next line Stanley clearly calls her Tiana as he should. See more »

heaven no ski patrol yes
17 January 2011 | by lmbrunetSee all my reviews

Ski patrol is the greatest movie of all time. The perfect combination of slapstick humor mixed in with real life issues.. Raising money, ass grabbers, being short, developers,rocket skis as well wind skiing. These are issues most people deal with on a day to day basis. Without this movie i would have never known how to jump into my skis and save an eight year old girl from skiing into the woods at terminal velocity. If you have ever attended an ugly sweater party you are in debt to this movie. If you have ever shot the hole you are in debt to this movie. If you have ever won a talent show in drag singing dancing in the streets you are in debt to this movie. Any body who has disliked this movie or never seen it has neither tasted death. Nor lived life.
