Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell to do some excellent work with what is at times heavy and emotional material.
February 20, 2020
Not all of it works, but what does work works a lot and stuck with me after I left the theater...
February 20, 2020
We've got this remake, it exists, and judge it on its own. There's a lot to criticize, but a lot to enjoy too, and the premise is enough to give you some really good scenes with really good dialogue...
February 19, 2020
The tone shifts adroitly between existential horror and culture-clash comedy.
February 19, 2020
Co-produced by Louis-Dreyfus, it does have more of a frenetic undercurrent than the spare, sober original, but the theme of disrupted trust still has a harrowing edge.
February 18, 2020
The topic and subject matter paired with [Julia] Louis-Dreyfus' and [Will] Ferrell's performances are well worth spending the money to see this film.
February 18, 2020
It is way more poignant than I expected it to be, but of course, Downhill also has a lot to offer in the comedy department, too.
February 18, 2020
Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell give excellent performances in this family drama set in the Alps.
February 17, 2020
Ferrell and Louis-Dreyfus do a fine job of playing up the mundane minutiae of couple life against a major, character-defining moment. You may see yourself in them; you'll definitely be glad you're not them.
February 15, 2020
You may be forced to ask some serious questions about your own relationship.
February 15, 2020
For those searching for an alternative to the congestion of bullet-ridden, maniacal movies released the last few months or the limited selection of offerings during the winter doldrums, Downhill doesn't waste your time.

I cannot get angry or feel let down by what Downhill is not (most obviously that it isn't as deep or as profound as Force Majeure was). I can only judge the film for what it actually is.
February 15, 2020
It's a watered-down version of the original, but it's still pretty good: neither wise nor profound, yet sometimes smart and with sharp elbows - especially if you have nothing with which to compare it.
February 15, 2020
I feel like if Force Majeure had never existed, we'd really enjoy this movie for what it is.
February 14, 2020
The movie lacks certain subtleties that might have made it more satisfying, but what's here is still serviceable, amusing and worthy of some attention.
February 14, 2020
The performances are real and cringe-inspiring, making Downhill surprisingly thoughtful and deliciously uncomfortable.
February 14, 2020
This is much shorter and better than its predecessor, 'Force Majeure.' While Louis-Dreyfuss carries the movie, Will Ferrell is good in a serious role.
February 14, 2020
Louis-Dreyfus virtually saves the whole damn thing with her performance.
February 14, 2020
For the first 40 minutes of "Downhill," Louis-Dreyfus is not even doing comedy. Her struggle to hold it in, when she wants to scream at Pete, is the stuff of high-caliber drama, and Louis-Dreyfus plays it perfectly.
February 14, 2020
For all its faults, Downhill is a gutsy little 'serious farce.' We've got to admire the chutzpah of a Valentine Day's opening that boldly proclaims, 'Love means having to say you're sorry.'
