Trivia

This film was based on the 2014 Swedish film Force Majeure, which was inspired by the 1994 Seinfeld episode "The Fire" (S05 E19). In that episode George pushes a child & an old woman out of the way when a small fire breaks out at his girlfriend's son's birthday party. The episode also starred Julia Louis-Dreyfus, although her character was not involved in the storyline that Force Majeure was based on. There is a 26 year gap between the 2020 film and the episode that inspired the film it was based on. See more »

User Reviews

Worst movie we've seen in years of Friday night dates.
15 February 2020 | by rbeetcherSee all my reviews

Torture watching this movie. Would have walked out but my wife liked the Austrian mountain ski scenes. Nothing else about this movie was worthwhile. It struck me as a movie where the stars agreed to do it to support a family member who was trying to get into movie production but had no experience and no skill.
