Another 'modern twist' on the rom-com? really?

Hot Dog... The Movie and its disreputable ski-comedy ilk might have been a low point in cinema history, but at least their unbridled crassness had energy; Chalet Girl embraces similar '80s tropes for a lethargic you-go-girl fairy tale.

Undemanding, forgettable, formulaic teen rom-com.

Chalet Girl is a pedestrian affair that limply modernises the Cinderella fairytale for fun and profit.

There's just not enough to hold attention, eventually succumbing entirely to convention in a particularly insipid finale. Who knows, maybe even teenage girls will be rolling their eyes at the predictability of it all.

It's all very third division école de Richard Curtis.

This movie's resemblances to Pretty Woman are a bit worrying.

Pursues its way to its feelgood conclusion with just a little wit and a goodly lump of sentiment.

Jones may be a charismatic comedian, but no amount of her skilled mugging, Britpop tunes or help from supporting stars can transform this derivative ugly duckling into a comic Anglophile swan.

It's hard not to instantly forgive all the script's occasional faults and just be swept up in the feel-good nature of such a charming, easily-likable release.

Chalet Girl is what it says on the label - feel-good, unpretentious, snowbound fun.

Unashamedly aiming at a teenage audience, the film's lack of pretension is oddly refreshing

inoffensive, feel-good escapism and high jinks in the midst of extravagant surroundings.

Sure, it's predictable, implausible and clearly skewed toward a young female demographic, but it's also enjoyable escapist fun.

Archetypal, feel-good fluff at it's best.

See it for Jones, Nighy and the snow, but don't expect many laughs or any surprises.

Felicity Jones confirms her reputation as one of our brightest talents in this comedy about a young woman's struggle to vanquish her inner demons.
Alex Zane

The humour is aimed at teens but Jones' likeable presence make this a pleasant watch.

Chalet Girl is possibly the first British rom com since Working Title's heyday that won't make you want to stick pins in your eyes, will actually make you laugh, and wasn't made by Working Title.
