Hops and Box Office Flops: ‘OUT COLD’

Playboy Bunny Slope

A Poster for Old Cold

Out Cold is like someone spliced Caddyshack and Mallrats. In principle, that sounds awesome, right?

Well, unfortunately, that’s more in terms of concept—a group of shiftless park rats bumming around their place of work—and the presence of a London brother. In Out Cold, it’s Jason, rather than Jeremy.

I guess there’s slightly more to it. They do have to save their fledgling ski resort from an evil corporate stooge, John Majors (played by the legendary Lee Majors, how clever). And there’s a baffling love triangle that makes less than a semblance of sense.

If this sounds too harsh, I apologize. After all, this wonderful film does contain a polar bear licking salt off someone’s balls; that same someone having sex with a whirlpool jet; and a mechanical bull appearing to climax during a rough ride. I’d say the 90s were a lawless time, but this came out in 2001.

Anyway, sit back, chug some Christmas Ale from Great Lakes Brewing Co., and hit the slopes! I, the Thunderous Wizard (@WriterTLK), Mayor McCheeseCapt. Cash, and Chumpzilla are shredding some fresh gnar sans pants to determine who’s King of the Mountain!
