Editorial Reviews

Pretty tomboy Kim (Felicity Jones, Like Crazy, Brideshead Revisited) used to be a champion skateboarder, but now she flips burgers to support herself and her dad. Opportunity comes knocking when she lands a winter-long catering job in one of the plushest ski chalets in the Alps. At first, Kim is overwhelmed by this bizarre new world of posh people, vintage champagne, epic mountains and waist-deep powder. Then she discovers snowboarding, and her natural talent soon sees her training for the end-of-season competition, with a chance to win major prize money and just maybe the affections of her boss' handsome son Jonny (Ed Westwick, TV's Gossip Girl). Brooke Shields, Bill Nighy and Bill Bailey lend their incomparable talents to this charming and fun-filled comedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Snowboarding and Romance, English-style February 10, 2012
Format:DVD
Likeable romantic comedy with beautiful Alps setting, good, mostly English, actors and a fair amount of snowboarding/skiing.

Felicity Jones(the mildly bucktoothed, or is it called an overbite?, star of "Northanger Abbey", "Brideshead Revisited") plays an ex-champion skateboarder, down on her luck, poor girl, Kim, who takes a job as a servant or chalet girl for the ultra rich- Bill Nighy, Brooke Shields- at their posh ski lodge.

Kim knows nothing of snow, but goes about trying to conquer it and learn to snowboard and perhaps win the local competition plus the love of the rich son, Ed Westwick.

There's a lot of if's and maybe's has she struggles to overcome a past tragedy, support her loving but worthless dad, deal with backstabbing cattiness, and, the obvious social class differences.

The filmmakers shoot some gorgeous outdoor skiing and snowboarding, but the true focus of the movie is the relationships. The comedy is lightweight but entertaining. It's not rated, but I would say PG-13 for some language and sexual innuendo; there's a hot tub nude scene made for laughs but with really no "nasty bits" shown- everything's covered up.

Turn up the volume to cut through some of the English accents. Good to watch after a day on the slopes or just when it's cold and snowy out and could use a little romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Proved Me Wrong December 15, 2012
By LJ
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I thought this movie was going to be really stupid, but it turned out being pretty cute. I just watched it for Felicity Jones because I really liked her in Like Crazy. I only rented the movie, but, if I found it in a bargain bin, I would buy it and watch it again. The plot plays out like you would expect it to. There are no truly original concepts in the film, but it is still entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars light, funny, romantic comedy September 30, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Mind you these are my favourite kind of movies - light, entertainng, romantic comedy. It's like a Millsboone for the film world. Thanks for the nice movie. I suppose it's a version of Notting hill without Julie Roberts. Simple, story line, cute guy and girl, what else can you ask for.
