As if to justify a serious discussion of this comedy before dissing it, some reviewers have pointed out that it evokes Casablanca.

Although its main plot is a disposable low-rent ripoff and its leading players generally bland and undistinguished, there are some truly amusing supporting characters.

In failing in every base it tries to cover, there's no point in seeing Out Cold, for such preferable alternatives exist.

Out Cold is basically Porky's in the snow, and it's a pale imitation at that. You can't go into this movie expecting anything innovative.

Its only redeeming value is the killer snowboarding scenes.

Out Cold is essentially a spineless, unfunny Animal House. The pretence of plot is distracting and insulting.

Funnier than Woody Allen's last four movies, more exciting than Tarkovski's The Sacrifice, Out Cold will play best if your first legal beer is still far enough into the future to seem a vision of the promised land.

The result is so derivative, they should've called it Eskimo Pie.

Basically a low-rent remake of the 1984 low-rent teenage sex comedy Hot Dog ... The Movie.

I would mention that Out Cold boasts some pretty impressive snowboarding sequences, but so do most TV commercials.

How appropriate this overcooked turkey opened over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend! And I'm here to give it a basting.

What can you say about a movie that includes its outtake bloopers reel before the closing credits?

If you've made a movie in which former TV star Lee Majors ... is the funniest person present, then you have surely made a movie that sucks a lot.

Even though no one in the film breaks a leg, Out Cold is as lame as it gets.

The best that can be said of Out Cold is that it is generally more lame than obnoxious.

Funnier than it has any right to be and it's generally enjoyable.

The title says all there is to say about this pathetic hunk of moron-bait.

A formulaic and predictable film.
