Movie Reviews

Dumb title - but cute screwball comedy about adult film indu
Steven I. Ramm | Phila, PA USA | 06/15/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"No, this "independent" film has nothing to do with skiing or even a mountain. I have no idea why writer/director Sarah Schenck chose it. (Actually, it might have made SOME sense if the original title sequence - included as a "deleted scene" - had been used. It shows the leading actors playing in the snow on a slope.)

The firm won an award for Best Film at the LA Broad Humor Festival and I guess that makes sense as it certainly is filled with "broad humor" (and, no, I'm not making a pun about the naked female cast). There's plenty of nudity in the film, though none frontal and all being done for fun.

Underneath the humor and satire of the budget porn industry there is a more serious story about a husband who wants a family and his wife (an independent film director - much like Schenk- who makes feminist films and doesn't seem to be interested in "making a baby").

Filmed on a fairly small budget (it shows), this will not win any big acting awards but I've certainly seen worse. It was interesting to see two alternate endings to the film. I think it would have made more sense to use one of those. Then again, I'm not the Director and she made the choice.

The images appeared to not be as crisp and clear in the first 20 minutes or so of the film, but then sharpened up. Maybe Schenck was using a lower grade of film.

Anyway, it's worth watching once. Just don't look for any skiers in the film!
