Highly Suspect Reviews: Downhill

Downhill Movie Review


Ever been in a situation where you realize you said or did something that wasn’t great and now are dealing with wondering whether or not anyone else realized how bad it potentially was? Will Ferrell basically leaves his wife (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss) and kids to die in what they think, for a few moments, is an avalanche, and then tries to play it off as nothing happened. Oh, but it did. The writers of the Oscar-winning The Descendants write/direct this remake of the Swedish film Force Majeure to mixed results. Listen to Chris, Frank, Ben, and Beau detail the issues.


DIRECTED BY: Nat Faxon and Jim Rash

STARRING: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Will Ferrell, Miranda Otto, Zoƫ Chao, Zach Woods, Kristofer Hivju, Alex Macqueen, Giulio Berruti
