Storyline

Bull Mountain, Alaska, is a no frills ski resort, and the staff is a bunch of partying snowboard bums. The late founder, Papa Muntz, was famed for skiing with his butt exposed, and in fact is so memorialized by a statue. But his son, Ted, plans to sell the resort to hotshot ski mogul John Majors, who starts turning it into a slick resort, which of course has no room for most of the staff. The exception is Rick, the most serious of the bunch. But there's a complication: Rick met Majors' stepdaughter Anna on vacation in Mexico, and he's never gotten over a crush he had on her, even though she's about to marry a great guy, and Rick is also fiercely loyal to his friends.

Alternate Versions

A number of scenes were deleted from the final print some of which include:
  • Stumpy telling Pig Pen a story about how he invented the snowboard by nailing his feet to a two-by-four to get down a steep mountain.
  • A long scene showing another story of the death of Papa Muntz where after he talked with Rick about building a ski lift to Hangman's Peak, Papa went into the woods to "take a dump" when he had a heart attack, died and skied down the mountain, his backside bare, and everyone witnessed it which made Papa Muntz a legend.
  • Anthony putting a bicycle lock on a drunken Luke's neck when he's passed out, and Luke arriving for work at the lodge asking for the key.
  • Luke talking with Anne about Rick during the time Inga is on the motorized bull.
  • Stumpy pigging out on the cookout during the investors meeting, and saying: "how rude!"
  • An extended closing speach given by Stumpy to the camera about the end of the story when another person at the bar ask Lance who is Stumpy talking to.

Animal House for a less discerning audience
31 January 2005 | by mytragicflawSee all my reviews

OK, this film is not going to win any awards for best acting, or best cinematography, or best picture for that matter. However, this film will make you laugh. It will spend about a buck ninety of your time in a very guilty pleasure sort of way. It revolves around a town in Alaska, a ski town, that is about to encounter a shift from a peaceful, secluded atmosphere to a bustling, main stream atmosphere. Our heroes are the snowboard instructors who have to save the day from a irritating, stereotypical land developer. Putting aside the obvious overtones of similar movies of this genre, and dispelling some predictability you really can have a good time. The jokes are funny, the characters have some witty dialog and the story moves briskly. The only drawback for me was the inept love story, but that was balanced out with some good jokes derived from it. It's no Schindler's List, but is a worthy addition to a home library or just a rental on a Friday night.
