The dialogue is more sensible than the plotting, allowing us to forgive the film's more serious trespasses.

Unashamedly aiming at a teenage audience, the film's lack of pretension is oddly refreshing

Jones may be a charismatic comedian, but no amount of her skilled mugging, Britpop tunes or help from supporting stars can transform this derivative ugly duckling into a comic Anglophile swan.

A chirpy, tween-skewing, snowboarding-themed romantic comedy.

Brian Orndorf

There's just not enough to hold attention, eventually succumbing entirely to convention in a particularly insipid finale. Who knows, maybe even teenage girls will be rolling their eyes at the predictability of it all.

Hot Dog... The Movie and its disreputable ski-comedy ilk might have been a low point in cinema history, but at least their unbridled crassness had energy; Chalet Girl embraces similar '80s tropes for a lethargic you-go-girl fairy tale.

It's hard not to instantly forgive all the script's occasional faults and just be swept up in the feel-good nature of such a charming, easily-likable release.

Chalet Girl is what it says on the label - feel-good, unpretentious, snowbound fun.

I have to say I really enjoyed this movie. Any movie that features Ed Westwick (Chuck from Gossip Girl) and Bill Nighy is a winner in my book. Add to that a… More

Watched most of this, but just couldn't get into it. The story was just boring to me. Maybe the sports element was putting me off. Felicity Jones is okay,… More
