    Written from a place of a pathetic person, pretty much a movie about a woman chastising her husband for running from an Avalanch, while she sad there and did nothing to save her kids either, but somehow only he is the bad person. She is a horrible person, so if you are like her you need help. She is closed minded, selfish and self-indulgent and thinks everyone owes her... #failinlife She should have told the kids to run also but sat there and didn't even put them under the table, so she failed in her panic and froze, so as much as him, yet somehow in her own arrogant selfish way seems to hold it over him as if she is a victim. An annoying movie because the female character is selfish, she's unfaithful, but yet the movie holds her to the high ground despite and affair (what a low life)... I can't understand how a writer can justify this rubbish. It's a horrible storyline by a writer who must have serious issues in their own life, assuming female with man issues. Watching this movie took 2 hours of my life that I will never get back. Avoid this, and anything by the writers of this movie, they are hopelessly messed up. The last 30 seconds is how any balanced individual should have handled the first item. By discussing the situation, rather than the 'what about me' social justice disorder that many have today.

    What a disappointing movie. Will Farrell is one of my favorite actors and he really let me down. I wish I could get my time back.

    A real uninspired film, with terrible writting, awful pacing, and boring characters. This is just another candidate of the HOT PASS group of 2020.

    Downhill Review: 1.5/10 Pros: Will Ferrell and Julia Louise-Dreyfus are way better than this movie Cons: The script Boring as hell Extremely awkward (do not take a date to this movie) Weird character choices Very unbelievable dialogue and writing Didn't laugh one time

    It had some amusing moments, probably because I could relate to personal experience. I do feel though that it was an opportunity missed.

    I absolutely LOVED this movie. Perfect conveyance of the difficulty of marriage, especially the very hard-to-handle communication breakdowns: Peter is always trying to do the right thing and Billie's reasoning about everything that's not good enough is legit. Great writing, and the cliches about Europeans are extreme because that's how other nationalities experience them. This movie really tugged at my heartstrings, all the dialogue and the hardship rang true, and I'm only 3 years married so I really appreciated seeing these frustrations onscreen. It's an intricate portrait of how two very decent people can completely mishandle a situation by not communicating and send a good marriage downhill. Best for people who love to appreciate meaning and profundity without it being spelled out for you - which is marriage in a nutshell.

    Watched it for Julia Louis Dreyfus and she did not disappoint. And it was nice to see Wil Farrell in a toned-down character role, because this isn't really a comedy as it tells the story of a married couple forced to re-evaluate their lives (with little credible resolution) after barely escaping an avalanche during a family ski vacation. Apparently it's French film source material is better.

    It was not funny. I'm not sure if it was suppose to be. It's difficult to say. They had talented actors, but for some reason, this movie was very poorly done
