Product Description

Welcome to the ultimate collection of the strange, the wild and the wacky—Bloopers, Blunders & Bailouts from Warren Miller Entertainment. Available on DVD for the first time ever, this is a classic set of two of the greatest compilations of side-splitting winter weirdness.

In The Best of Winter Bloopers, Vol. 3, you’ll see inner-tubing, cardboard downhills, snowshoe races, dummy races, pond jumps, dirt skiing, chairlift and rope tow blunders, not to mention some of the most outrageous ski and snowboard crashes ever caught on film. The entire collection is narrated by the Master of Winter Comedy himself, Warren Miller.

Skiing Bloopers II will show you why Warren Miller has rightfully been called the "King of Skiing Comedy." You’ll see it all, from altitude-weary beginners to Zudnik, the half-wolf, half-husky who gets a speeding ticket in Crested Butte. It’s the cream of the comedy crop: crashes, klutzes and collisions as only Warren Miller Entertainment can deliver.

Warren Miller's Bloopers, Blunders and Bailouts is a slapstick compilation of earlier Miller programs celebrating extreme klutziness and silliness in sundry winter wonderlands. Miller plays droll host for a feast of archival footage revealing the human body's capacity to bounce and bounce (and bounce) down endless ski runs after a loss of footing. The question of how many rocks and trees a man can hit before he's broken is never quite resolved, but less agonizing comedy can be found in ordinary mishaps on rope tows and first-time skier panic on gentle bunny runs. Then there's the human impulse to attempt the truly stupid, such as skiing down steep hills of weeds and riding bikes down ski trails. Novel activities include skiing with dogs, skiing in bikinis (both genders), and skiing on furniture. If the measure of a man is whether he can rappel down a steep hill in skis, well, heroes await within. --Tom Keogh

Great for a good laugh!
Chrystopher
Although we'll be skiing Europe and many of the people in the bar won't understand the narration, it really doesn't matter.

I bought this to show at a ski party but ended up not showing it because it wasn't good enough.

I'm a Canadian, my husbands Australian, and we live in Australia with our 3 kids. I bought this DVD for my husband @ Christmas 2004 and the kids watched it with us. They now talk about it all the time, spcially the Australian sections! We all agree that you have to be a skier, or have done some sort of outdoor winter activity to appreciate the humor.

We love Warren Miller's sense of humor mixed with his dry American accent...it had us in stitches! The kids do a great job imitating his voice and have us laughing every time!

Very funny, a must see DVD!

They're all here! Some of the best and most entertaining non-skiers, non-boarders, non-smart individuals you'll ever see. I picked this up to watch in the apartment and the bar during the ski trips. Perfect for both venues. Although we'll be skiing Europe and many of the people in the bar won't understand the narration, it really doesn't matter. It's the agony of defeat that comes across best in these videos. Thrills and spills a-plenty.

The only reason I didn't give this five stars is that much of the material in Skiing Bloopers comes from Winter Bloopers 3. And what doesn't come from Winter Bloopers 3 really isn't that hysterical, except for the sumo skiers. Yep, you read that right!

But this entire disk isn't made for deep thought, so pick it up and enjoy it for the entertainment value. You'll get more than your money's worth of laughs.

Being a big Warren Miller fan, I thought this would be a fun gift for my skiing husband. It wasn't up to any Warren Miller standard. It is two segments on one DVD and some of the clips are repeated from the first to second segment. Save your money and buy the boxed set. It has all of these sometimes lame clips plus good skiing and great mountain shots.

Initially DVD was great. Very funny stuff. However, when you click on the second half of the DVD, about 5 minutes in it starts repeating the videos from the first half of the DVD.

This is a nice fairly clean review of my favorite winter sport. Some parts are cuter and funnier than others but you'll enjoy watching it over and over; a good party pleaser.

I am a Warren Miller fan and always thought that his movies had funny moments. This DVD did not have the scenes which I remembered. It is average for entertainment value overall.

I used to love Warren Miller's movies. I grew in a ski town and they were on every video stores shelf. However there are so many well-done, blooper shows out there now that are more refined. I bought this to introduce WM to my kids (ages 6-10), whom I am just getting into skiing. Problems: 1.) They rarely laughed 2.)There were some inappropriate moments (2nd scene has bikini races, "Family that skis...B1t@hes at each other") and 3.) the two films share a lot of material so watched back to back is a little boring. Sorry Warren, but I think my next ski-film $ will be going to Greg S...
I was hoping to show the kids somthing to get them excited about skiing the next day and I think all I did was remind them how old I am.

Thought this would include more (and better) material from the Warren Miller films. Disappointed 90% of these thrills and spills were in the past movies and repeated in the box set I also bought. Even within this DVD it repeats the falls and skating on ice and chairlift pileups despite being split into two parts. Where's the continuation footage of those fantastic jumps and you can see the skier's head between their ankles and the clip ends? If you buy the box set, leave this one on the shelf. It's a pooper!
