It's shocking how many talented elements combined together to make a film so terrible
February 24, 2020
Downhill managed to skew and scrap the richness of its predecessor and replace it with dragging drama and cringy comedy.

Allow me to save you some time and money: Force Majeure is streaming on Amazon Prime.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus... is effective in bringing out Billie's frustration. However, the issues of the movie are beyond her control, a real case of 'force majeure'?
February 22, 2020
Ultimately, "Downhill's" failure is in not seeing beyond the film that inspired it.
February 22, 2020
It's the kind of material that could be either serious and straight or outright farcical, but Downhill isn't really either...
February 20, 2020
An odd, misguided remake of a 2014 Swedish movie, this sour, muddled comedy seems to have missed the original's point. Here, it's 86 minutes spent with detestable people who argue and make excuses.
February 20, 2020
It's remarkable that a film featuring so many mountains could be so utterly flat. In the end, they may as well have titled it Force Mineure.
February 20, 2020
Even with a stellar performance by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Downhill can't escape the shadow of Force Majeure.
February 20, 2020
It felt like four hours...and it came off trite...just watch the original.
February 20, 2020
The Force Majeure remake starring Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus isn't an all-out disaster, just oddly disappointing...
February 20, 2020
Sometimes movie titles are just asking for trouble. This exasperating comedy-drama starts with a good premise - taken from its much better source material, the Swedish film Force Majeure - and goes, well, downhill from there.

Not even Miranda Otto's (Chilling Tales of Sabrina) occasional bursts of funny/horny energy can rescue Downhill from its downward slide to Bummer Town.
February 19, 2020
A heavy-handed, boring exercise, tone-deaf to human behavior. Seek out the spellbinding Force Majeure for perceptive understanding of personal and interpersonal conflict.
February 18, 2020
Dreyfus does all the heavy lifting showing new depths of dramatic ability, but she can't save this remake of the scorching 2014 Swedish dramedy Force Majeure.
February 18, 2020
Flawed as it is, "Downhill" at least aspires to telling an honest story of married life, but I'm not sure I'd make it my Valentine movie pick.
February 18, 2020
It's not especially funny, but it's not bitingly satiric either. And the supporting characters are wincingly insufferable... Their scenes are excruciatingly off-key, and they drive the picture further into the ground.
February 17, 2020
The movie is being billed as a comedy but is - in fact - a cringeworthy story of a married couple whose relationship is in a humiliating downward spiral.
February 17, 2020
Downhill is yet another example of why some films should never be remade.
February 17, 2020
It feels as though the edges have all been shaved off for the sake of a more broadly appealing comedy.
