Out Cold



Critic Consensus: A party movie that substitutes surfs for snow, Out Cold will leave viewers just that with its gross-out humor and sophomoric plot.

Movie Info

Snowboarding buddies Luke, Rick, Anthony and Pig Pen are living large on Alaska's Bull Mountain. Partying hard, looking for girls and doing just about anything to have a good time is what life on Bull Mountain is all about. But when town founder Papa Muntz dies, his son Ted decides to sell the mountain to slick Colorado ski mogul John Majors. Everyone is bummed by his plans to turn the boarding mountain into an espresso-and-tofu ski resort, and it's up to our heroes- along with Major's beautiful, rebellious daughters Inga and Anna -to keep Bull Mountain yuppie-free.more

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

Its only redeeming value is the killer snowboarding scenes.

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.

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

Audience Reviews for Out Cold


Out Cold is a fairly decent comedy with a few good laughs. By no means is this a great film, but for what it is, it's a pleasant time waster. If you're in the mood for a mindless comedy, Out Cold is a perfect viewing. The film is not memorable by any means, but for what it is, the film brings on a few good chuckles. The film has been compared to Casablanca on many occasions, except this film, will never attain the same legendary status as the timeless classic. Anyhow, this is an enjoyable film to watch with friends. Some of the comic delivery, but for the most part it succeeds at being a very silly, and film to watch. This isn't a memorable comedy to watch, but for the most part, it's pure mindless fun that definitely shouldn't be taken seriously. The cast are silly and fun, and there's plenty to enjoy about this film if you're in the right state of mind. Expect something funny here, but also dimwitted, and you may not be disappointed. Don't expect anything great here, you won't find it here. I very much enjoyed the film. Though very stupid, this film is lots of fun from start to finish. If you can forget how idiotic this film is, then you might enjoy it. This a film that is meant to be mindless fun, and though imperfect, it still lots of fun to watch.

Great and wild comedy on winter sports action. Plenty of parties and girls that are alike "National Lampoon's Animal House".
