Don't expect much from this movie. It's a fun, funny movie, nothing more. Felicity Jones is good, not "Like Crazy" good but she was able to play the adorable poor girl really well.

Felicity Jones is good, not "Like Crazy" good but she was able to play the adorable poor girl really well. The other acting is good, but nothing special as is the writing and direction. The only thing I didn't like were the cheesy snowboarding scenes, but they were to be expected. In all lots of laughs and really fun movie. 7.5/10 Expand

A skateboarding romance in the Alps wouldn't normally grab me, but loved this little Brit charmer. Even got teary. Felicity Jones as the star is terrific in a Cinderella role as the downstairs lower class chalet girl serving the toffs, whichA skateboarding romance in the Alps wouldn't normally grab me, but loved this little Brit charmer. Even got teary. Felicity Jones as the star is terrific in a Cinderella role as the downstairs lower class chalet girl serving the toffs, which include the always wonderful Bill Nighy. We all know the outcome from early on, but along the way there's lot of laughs and lots of snow action. Expand

Hoping for a better job and pay, instead she discovered herself.

I think it was a much better film. I just wanted a good entertainment and I got that. Though the story is not fresh enough. In fact, it is comparable to the recent sports-biopic, I mean that came much later to this, 'Eddie the Eagle'. Looks even the filmed location was same. Quite similar theme when it comes to the sporting events, but there's a wide gap on how it was played and by whom.

From the director of 'All about Steve'. Firstly, it was a sport film and then romance attached to it in the required opening slot. So pretty inspiring to focus on something in our life to reach the heights. There's no shortcuts, it's always a hard work. In the film, that concept was funnily told. Encountering a new world, and discovering new things. It includes friendship, love and dedication in what one believes in.

Great cast, except the love interest of Felicity Jones. He wasn't bad, but the chemistry did not work, even in the short span of their romance in the tale. Anyway, the romance parts were too cliché, but neglectable as it has little value. Because there are other reasons to like the film. The stunts are not extraordinary, just simple and realistic. The film will work for most of the people if they're not expecting too much. This is not some chick flick, a better film than that.

6.5/10
