Four wacky guys take on a pack of rich stuffed shirts (does this premise sound at all familiar?) in this broad comedy. Rick (Jason London) is a slobby but good-natured snowboarder who is mending a broken heart after splitting up with Anna (Caroline Dhavernas), a girl he met while on vacation in Mexico. Rick has headed back to Bull Mountain, AK, where he and his buddies Luke (Zach Galifianakis), Anthony (Flex Alexander), and Pig Pen (Derek Hamilton) spend their days riding the slopes and their nights partying hard.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As if to justify a serious discussion of this comedy before dissing it, some reviewers have pointed out that it evokes Casablanca."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"The result is so derivative, they should've called it Eskimo Pie."
‑ Bruce Fretts, Entertainment Weekly
"Although its main plot is a disposable low-rent ripoff and its leading players generally bland and undistinguished, there are some truly amusing supporting characters."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"Out Cold is essentially a spineless, unfunny Animal House. The pretence of plot is distracting and insulting."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"I would mention that Out Cold boasts some pretty impressive snowboarding sequences, but so do most TV commercials."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Its only redeeming value is the killer snowboarding scenes."
‑ , Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Basically a low-rent remake of the 1984 low-rent teenage sex comedy Hot Dog ... The Movie."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"In failing in every base it tries to cover, there's no point in seeing Out Cold, for such preferable alternatives exist."
‑ Michael Dequina, Film Threat
"Just don't waste your time or money."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"How appropriate this overcooked turkey opened over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend! And I'm here to give it a basting."
‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
"Funnier than Woody Allen's last four movies, more exciting than Tarkovski's The Sacrifice, Out Cold will play best if your first legal beer is still far enough into the future to seem a vision of the promised land."
‑ Don Irvine, Globe and Mail
"Even though no one in the film breaks a leg, Out Cold is as lame as it gets."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Out Cold is basically Porky's in the snow, and it's a pale imitation at that. You can't go into this movie expecting anything innovative."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"There's really nothing to recommend about Out Cold."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"What can you say about a movie that includes its outtake bloopers reel before the closing credits?"
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
