Good Ole movie style

The movie starts slow (office setting) and then takes on lots of physical (ski/ snowmobile) humour in an outdoor setting. While it is over the top in places, its not scary, rude or in bad taste. The snowmobile race is in golden oldie style - its definitely worth a view and got many belly laughs from our 4 and 7 year old

Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The first thirty minutes of the movie are a little on the dull side. Once the skiers show up, however, the fun begins. Those parents who remember watching their own parents snowplow down the hill wearing bright yellow pants and orange parkas will get a kick out of the adult- paradise ski scenes. Kids will enjoy the goofy ski escapades as well as the comedic epic snowmobile race. Chances are, however, that most contemporary kids won't last through the opening credits. Worth a try, however, if your family is heading on a trip to the mountains.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
