And I quote… from Netflix that is. How hilarious is that?

…”Three friends get trapped overnight on a ski lift at a New England resort. To make matters worse, they don’t have cell phones. To make matters worse than that, the resort is closed for the entire next week. To make matters worse still, a potentially deadly storm starts raging approximately two minutes after they get trapped up there. To make matters further worse, in the immediate area lurk blood-thirsty wolves (you know, the kind you always see running around killing people at posh ski resorts); and the characters aren’t all that interesting or sympathetic…”

I sniggled and giggled over this one.

Here’s why… I cringed when I saw this title. I mean, I’m a skier. Melikey my new skis and my new awesome gear. So this movie, aimed straight at my heart, pin pricking the fear that is all me and all in my head, made me drop my jaw and visions of “the other side of the freaking mountain” sprung their ugly twisted thoughts in my head. And visions of being a quadiplegic blonde chick in a wheel chair being spoon fed by her soon-to-be-ex-fiance made me rethink my choice of movie rentals.

That is, til I read this awesome review.

So – props to the dude with the badass review (xgd 485095) who reminded me that wolves don’t invade my lovely ski resort, nor would I ever be the last one at the party. I’m just not that kind of ski bunny. You know, the kind that is there for last call. Nut-uh.

I’m this kind – sunny skies, and clothing optional. That’s just how I roll. In springtime!

Now stop drooling you fools. You think I’d really post a picture of my backside all nekked? Well, maybe yes. But still.

Get a grip.

    Too funny. S and I have joked about renting that movie. Can’t be any worse than the two Paranormal Activity movies that simply have not lived up to the hype. 😉

      I don’t know – paranormal activities ala X Files freak the freak right out of me… Might consider switching genres!

    Huh… you’d think someone would have thought to bring a nice ‘chew toy’ along for that trip! WHAT?! They could use it to beat off the wolves! Get it… ok, never mind. ❤ you!

      Good point – a big chew toy might distract the big dawgs enough for the hapless fools to escape!

    I would love to write these reviews. It would be a job with a lot of laughs. Also, what about the screenwriter who creates these scripts! What recesses of the brain does such a story emerge?

    Totally irrelevant but you have to see Tosh do his 25 minutes of recap on “Human Centipede” it’s filed under spoiler alert. Also filed “under why would you want to see this movie if you can watch Daniel make great fun of it!” I’m telling you, he’s greatly funny.

      Daniel Tosh is hilarious. I will have to go look for this!

    so I’m reading this and my biggest worry would not be someone discovering I own a vibrator but that my dog might get a shock from the batteries. . . .he,he. . . .guess I love my dog more than I care about my rep!

      I’m certain you meant this comment for “Nice Chew Toy” but totally agree. My little dogglies would never survive either. 😉
