Good film. Bland DVD.

""Ski School 2" is a departure from its predecessor. Whereas the first "Ski School" was a party film, the sequel is a romantic comedy, albeit a romantic comedy geared more for the guys than the ladies. I love the first film, so in comparison, "Ski School 2" comes up short. However when judged on its own, the film still gives a nice, warm, comfortable feeling of entertainment. It may not have you rolling on the floor like the first film, but it is more dater-friendly.
The DVD is minimal, really bare bones. It consists of nothing but the standard FBI warnings and the feature title track itself. There are no menus of any kind. The film does have chapter breaks, but there is no chapter selection menu. There is only one audio option, Dolby 2.1. On the bright side, the picture is crisp.
Despite the minimal philosophy of this DVD, in the end I decided the film itself was all I really wanted. I've been waiting on pins and needles for the original film to come out on DVD. My reaction when I heard about this item when it was recently released was one of cautious optimism. Perhaps one day the original film will be released. In the meantime, I marginally recommend this purchase to anyone who likes "Ski School 2" or anyone who wants a fun, silly, low-brow romantic comedy. However, due to the fact that this isn't the original "Ski School" and that the DVD is minimal, I can only give it three stars."
A far cry from the original, not something to watch again.

"After having seen the original Ski School, I guess I was expecting a little too much from the sequel. It turned out that I was expecting way too much. With the only semi-recognizable character (Dean Cameron, whom I still consider brilliant) having to carry the movie, which consisted of an awful plot and even worse acting, it really turned into a one man show. But, if you have an hour and a half and you think you need to punish yourself, then this is for you."
Quite possibly one of the greatest pieces of American cinema

"There have been great sequels like Godfather II but none have ever reached the cinamatic heights of Ski School 2. Dean Cameron reminds me of the young Tom Hanks in the classic Volunteers another awesome movie from the 80s. The skiing montages and footage are sweet and I defy you to find a better movie to enjoy with your buddies over delicious beers. They don't make silly comedies like these anymore and thats a damn crime. I love a great art film like anyone else but plot-lite silly films that you can watch just for a good laugh just aren't out there anymore. I honestly tell my friends that this is one of my all time favorite films and I am not kidding. Give it a watch - I can promise three things: 1) lewd and silly physical comedy, 2) goofball antics, and 3) gratuitous nudity in the classic 80s style. God bless Dean Cameron and all the wacky people that made Ski School 2!"
