"we came, we partied, ..we conquered!
14 December 2007 | by witster18See all my reviews

Ski School takes it's partying seriously!

Perhaps the third best "Beer" movie ever behind "Strange Brew" and "Beerfest". It's not a ski movie - it's a beer movie:)

"its not how far you go....but how go you far." Section 8 won't quit until they've drank every case on the mountain. There's a nice little drama piece when a beer spills....and the nerds versus Jocks thing works nicely....this has got to be scored higher....I think I'm gonna start a petition for a higher SKi School score. This isn't rocket science...and there won't be any academy awards(although Cameron is GENUINELY funny here)..... If you want a FUNNY movie about beerests...this is it. Grab a case of High Life and this movie off the shelf and it's twenty bucks well spent. 57/100

You'll like it if you liked: Beerfest, Hot Dog:The Movie, Strange Brew, Hot Tub Time Machine, and Up the Creek.
