All of the reviews you have read to this point have been pretty accurate, for the most part. And, yes, I can easily see how this movie would receive anywhere from 1 to 4 stars--it just depends on what mood you're in and what you're looking for. The acting in this film, while not necessarily Oscar material, is cute and suitably campy. The one-liners are very well-timed. The cast is fairly balanced, ranging from a weak performance by Claudia Schiffer all the way to the very creative and noteworthy antics of Stephen Baldwin and Robert Downey Jr. Yes, it's predictable and none too challenging to follow, but if you need cute laughs for the above 18 crowd, you may want to check it out.

Apparently I'm the only one who found this movie funny and romantic! I laughed quite a bit, and yes it was campy and the acting probably wasn't the greatest, but I don't think the writer was expecting an Oscar nomination here. Above everything else, us ladies are finally getting pay back for having to sit through female nudity in just about every R rated movie. Friends & Lovers finally showed up some full frontal male nudity, and for that alone I gave it 5 stars! People- don't be so rigid when reviewing a movie! Enjoy the ridiculous too!!!

In the style of <i>The Big Chill</i>, this wonderful romantic comedy offers good character development, exceptional one liners, and a surprisingly good performance from Robert Downey, Jr. as he attempts to support the boring performance painfully offered by Claudia Schiffer. The ending is a little predictable but enjoyable.

This is definetly not a movie for everyone, but i enjoyed it. it doesn't tackle any huge issues, and the plot is kind of predictable, but it was fun to watch. if you are in the mood for a no brainer movie, this is it...and we all know sometimes we want to watch a movie that doesn't need explaining...a movie you can just kick back and enjoy. I LOVE robert downey jr, and he is by far the best actor in the film. The best scene is when they guys try to get the girls to get naked in the hot tub with them, i laughed so hard when keaton dropped his towel and the girls went screaming into the house histarically laughing because of a rather large, very exposed extremity...i almost died...but you'll have to check it out for yourselves...not for the younger viewers...but fun if you want a no brainer...it reminded me of me and my friends on our little trips...i think that's why i liked it...it's cheesy, but relateable on some level...worth checking out.

This film follows a group of friends who get together for the holidays to go skiing and hang out. The plot never builds; it doesn't go anywhere. It centers on Ian's dad, the owner of the winter home the friends are staying at, trying to corner Ian to ask forgiveness for a lifetime of absence. You find out early that the dad's primary motivation for working on his relationship with his son is because the dad's fiancé refuses to marry him if he doesn't. The friends chatter together, they talk about sex, they go skiing, they sleep, and they sit around and talk - sort of. No one has anything profound, deep or even revealing to say. The characters are flat. They have no quarks or anything to make them interesting. While following the father and friends around, it's hard to care what happens next. Emotions are never awakened. If you are entertained by the occasional flashing of genitals and all the frat-house discussion leading up to it, then there are some "funny" parts.

In the end, the father finally gets a chance to talk to his son. Ian seems to have no response. He just looks at him. Finally Ian extends his hand, but the father is too busy running to the window to even notice: the dad's fiancé drives up and you see her get out of the car. At this point you would expect the camera to shift to Ian and show disappointment, disgust, or resignation, but the film just moves on, ignoring any emotions that should have been captured and relayed to us.

The story has great potential, but the writer and director never seemed to see that potential - so neither do you.

Adorable little comedy about relationships. Robert Downey Jr. was ever so delightful as a wacky German ski instructor with a bit of a secret. His love scene was priceless, I coudln't stop laughing! In fact, Downey stole the film, even tho his on screen time wasn't much, compared to all the others in the film.

I really only watched this because I'm working my way through all of the movies that Robert Downey Jr. has been in. And though some of the acting is cheesy and almost (almost!) unbearable, it's a very cute movie. I still can't get over Robert's German accent! As for a recommendation, if you can't handle nudity, then it might not be for you. But if you love simple, to the point movies, then I definitely recommend it.

Format: DVD
It opens cute, with a scene of friends hunting for a perfect Christmas tree for their shared apartment, and debating the merits of long-needle pine over spruce. The gang of friends heads off to a ski weekend courtesy of one of the group's father, and bed-hopping and wanna-be wackiness ensues. There are a few good performances (David Rasche as the johnny-come-lately dad trying to reconnect with his estranged son, well-played by George Newbern, are two stand-outs). The rest of the mostly B-movie casters turn in okay performances. There is a sweet gay sub-plot, too many annoying scenes involving Stephen Baldwin as the stereotypical, annoying, sex-obsessed member of the group, and some gratuitous nudity and language. Then there is Robert Downey Jr., playing a ski resort Lothario intent on seducing Claudia Schiffer, wielding a comic Austrian accent and one of the more creative seduction techniques you may ever see. He seems to be in a different, funnier movie -- the one I hoped I'd see when I popped this into the DVD player. The direction is a bit aimless, but maybe some key transitions ended up in the editing room trash can. And why did the wonderful Anne Magnusen take a bit part as Rasche's fiancee? What a waste. I'd have killed to see her and Downey mix it up! The film is mild rom-com meets relationship drama. Rent, don't buy.
