I watched Frozen a while back because I was sick and it was on Netflix. Both me and the fiance thought it was pretty awful. I mean, its a movie that mainly appeals to skiers, but it constantly demonstrates that the people behind making the movie either are just not skiers or came to the conclusion that the skiing audience is just really, really stupid.
Major points of complete and total unreality:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
1. Getting stuck on a lift by the liftie misunderstanding "only 3 more need to come down." Amazingly implausible, and no ski area would have that as a procedure to figure out whether the lift was empty. It would have been much more plausible for the kids to have restarted the lift themselves, and something else to happen to stop the lift (ski area killing power as part of shutting down the mountain?)
2. Hey! Wolfpacks at an American ski area that hang around waiting to eat people that fall out of chairlifts! Because there are lots of wolfpacks in America. And they aren't afraid of people AT ALL. And they certainly hang out on the ski slope just after it closes each night.
3. "Razor Sharp" haul rope. Um, No.
4. The entire conclusion was the most insulting thing I have ever seen in the movies. Chairlifts NEVER just up and fall off the haul rope, doublyh so fixed grip chairlifts. They especially don't just up and fall off and then have some magic little cable in the pivot to keep it suspended just long enough for the obnoxious surviving girl to jump safely to the ground.
Dumbest movie ever.
