Barely escaping an avalanche during a family ski vacation in the Alps, a married couple is thrown into disarray as they are forced to reevaluate their lives and how they feel about each other. Inspired by the motion picture FORCE MAJEURE by Ruben Östlund.Written by
Fox Searchlight Pictures
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 »
Worst movie we've seen in years of Friday night dates.
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.
