By mk VINE VOICE on 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.

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.

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.

I first saw this movie on Netflix and fell in love with it! A surprising amount of celebrities are in the cast and they all work really well together. It is worth the small price to buy it because you will watch it again and again! With a couple of surprising plot twists and witty British banter to add the icing to the cake this movie is perfect for a chick night!

Everyone loves an underdog and Felicity Jones as our Chalet Girl is definitely lovable. I like these kinds movies because they are feel good plots with people you love to hate and those you cross your fingers and root for. I gave it four stars because it has a made for video feel, but I still enjoyed watching it. I could spend my whole Sunday evening watching these kinds of movies.

A cute romantic comedy that even has Brooke Shields in it. The story is light and breezy, with snowboarding thrown in for the X Games crowd. The Swiss Alps look great, and the storyline is cute. My wife and I enjoyed this 2 hour diversion.

This is another life can turn around for you when it seems everything's gone up in smoke story. Kim is a strong character who doesn't compromise herself. There were some scenes that I could do without but overall the story is encouraging. To get back on the horse after you've been thrown and follow your dreams. She even has an effect on those around her to make choices for their own dreams and desires and not to let others or life just pass you by....follow your heart.
