I was expecting the normal 80's cheesy ski flick but I really enjoyed this movie. It had awesome professional done ski scenes and the jumps were out of this world.

"I love this movie. It's fantastic. This movie has everything one could desire in a trashy ski comedy. Nudity, comic violence, cheesy villians, and, of course, CHINESE DOWNHILL!!!However, I will NEVER buy this DVD until it is available as a widescreen feature. Especially a movie with such cinematic ski scenes; the producers (in their infinite wisdom) have chosen to release it as a pan-and-scan edition. WHY? Why do these things happen to good DVD's? I've seen it before. Companies release bargain (read: cheap) DVD's to sell quickly, but do not bother to re-master the movies properly. Warner Brothers did a lot of this sort of thing in the early days of DVD, they just churned out movies that were popular 5 - 10 years ago hoping for some rejuvenation. I just cannot buy a feature that has a 1.33:1 ratio unless it was originally in that format (such as a TV programme).By the way, make sure to check out the South Park episode, Asspen, which skewers Hot Dog...the Movie and many other sports movies from the 80's.Keep fighting against fullscreen releases of movies!!!
If they really want a fullscreen version, they can release BOTH."
Hot Dog--A great gas of a movie!

"This is a decent story about skiing, partying, and hi-jinks and low-brow humor. Watch for two stars--Dan, played by David Naughton--remember the Dr. Pepper commercials and the TV show "Makin' It'? and Sunny played by Tracy N. Smith who co-starred in Bachelor Party as a friend of the bride. There are so many memorable characters in this movie! 'Snake Leg' Banks, Michelle 'Banana Pants', Squirrel Murphy, Kendo, Rudi, etc. Lots of fun. Shannon Tweed is in this, too. She was a Playboy Playmate of the Year. Look for the Chinese Downhill, Squirrel's reaction in the hi-speed chair lift, and the part when Dan lets everyone know he got 'hurt' by hitting a tree. Good skiing shots, too. Need a DVD of this!"

"Hot Dog The Movie is one of the best films of all time! I watched this movie all through high school and can remember watching all of the classic ski sequences at 5:00 AM while waiting for my friends to pick me up to go skiing. As is true with many others, this movie has become a ritual to get me ready for the ski season. Who else thought Bannana Pants was hot? Who thinks Sunny's thighs were too big? Who thought Squirel Murphy should have had better luck? And one last question: WHERE CAN I FIND THE SOUNDTRACK?"
