Goofs

After Kate nearly blew up the cabin trying to start a fire with lighter fluid, both she and Redford left the can of lighter fluid on the wood stove all night. Even if empty, no woodsman worth his powder would leave that can on top of the stove to just sit there and get hotter all night long. Same goes for the kerosene lantern. See more »

Snowmobiles and automobiles

40 Below and Falling is a rom-com television movie which starts in a remote community in the north where Kate Carter, a popular teacher is leaving to get married.

However the next morning there is a snow storm and Kate is stranded. After somehow getting to the plane that would take her to civilisation, she finds out that there are no flights and the roads are blocked.

Determined to get to her wedding Kate convinces a rugged, surly stranger, Redford to get her out of there with his snowmobile. However these two people are like salt and pepper but as they travel along they get into scrapes with grizzly bears, mountain men and have to cope with the severe weather.

Kate realises that there is more to Redford despite his rough exterior and he has a lyrical charm about him. As we cut to the scenes of the groom to be waiting for Kate to arrive we have an inkling that he is not the right man for her and so does eventually Kate.

The film is really a snowy road trip between two mismatched strangers who eventually fall for each other. Shawn Roberts (Redford) kinds of reminded me of Henry Cavill and of course we find out that he has hidden talents and issues in his own personal life to deal with.

The film itself has some slap stick and broad humour here and there, especially as Kate's beau attracts the interest of another female.

However the film itself is a little bit silly and shallow, I never really warmed to it.
