Downhill - Movie Review

The Movie: Downhill

The Director: Nat Faxon and Jim Rash

The Cast: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Will Ferrell, Miranda Otto, Zoe Chao, Zach Woods, Julian Grey, Ammon Jacob Ford, Kristofer Hivju, Giulio Berruti

The Story: 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.

The Review:
Downhill is a remake of Force Majeure, a brilliantly crafted comedic exploration of family and relationships, although somehow the filmmakers forgot to include just about everything that makes the original so special. The result is a dull and lifeless movie that has no idea what it's trying to be. Force Majeure is available for about a dollar on Amazon so you're better off going that direction because otherwise you'll just be heading straight downhill.
