The dry humour in this film is dryer than dry ice!
Altogether forgettable, ‘Downhill’ is an avalanche of its own – starting off more than a little rocky, it accelerates towards its destination as it wipes out everything in its path, whitewashing what was there beforehand. This is an adaptation not only unworthy of the original, but unworthy of the cast it enlisted. Just go hunt down ‘Force Majeure’.

Cringeworthy “Comedy” to Avoid
Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell star in “Downhill,” a new comedy that comes out on Valentine’s Day, Friday 14, 2020. The film was directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash.
Billie (Louis-Dreyfus) and her two boys barely escape been buried alive during a “controlled” avalanche, while Pete (Ferrell) runs for cover thinking only about his self. The scary ordeal causes them to take a fresh look at their marriage and their future together.
I had high hopes with the pairing of Louis-Dreyfus and Ferrell and what kind of comedic caper on the ski slopes might ensue. Unfortunately, this film was disappointing. This isn’t the kind of “feel-good” romantic movie to take your significant other out to see on Valentine’s Day.
The film isn’t mushy and doesn’t “resolve” like a bow on a pretty package. Instead, it is more of a “warning” in relationships, showing how miscommunication, self-centeredness, defensiveness all can contribute to breaking down bonds in relationships. The humor in it is how the couple fails to address the issue directly causing further distance, bringing others into it to plead their case, and even puts the kids in the middle. There were some cringeworthy moments throughout.
Some of the film’s less flattering moments include an awkward scene with a ski instructor, crude sexual humor, and drunkenness without any really point.
I would recommend steering clear of this one, in favor of a nice evening in, preparing dinner for your partner, snuggling up on the couch and dreaming together about your hopes for the future so you don’t end up like Billie and Pete unsure of what is next in store for your relationship.
Skip This Movie
Unlikable characters, boring dialogue, very little comedy. A flop for a Valentine’s date! I started looking at my watch at an hour into the movie, and was shocked to find another 30 minutes were left! Would have walked out, but was with my wife. Forgettable film!
