Critic Reviews for Downhill
The film oversimplifies the complexities of the original, however contrived they might have been, and generally lacks Östlund's subtlety and plaintiveness.
For this to work, every nuance has to be just right -- and the lack of specificity here suggests that Faxon and Rash haven't much of their own to say about either long-term marriages or Americans abroad.
What's that hurtling down the piste? Another rubbish US remake of a European art-house hit? Actually, no. This version of Force Majeure... isn't quite as wonderfully unsettling, but it's not far off.
It's funny, but aggressively simplified, like swapping out a roquefort for a pack of Dairylea Dunkers.
Something that might have been drawn up by a cringe-comedy algorithm, or a team of aliens whose understanding of the human condition was derived from a skim-view of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
