Perfect date night movie :tongue:

The original film, Force Majeure, was one of the most uncomfortable movie sessions I have ever experienced. Curious to see if this is a comedy, or an awkward commentary on marriage, and life.

Interesting! I’ve never seen the original. So assuming it’s better to avoid the first rather than watching for comparison sake?!

From the little amount that can be gleaned from the trailer, it looks to be an almost verbatim copy of the original. As I am a native Swedish speaker, I enjoyed seeing the original movie in the original language, but subtitles can take away from the experience. One of the actors is even the same one in both films, though it appears his role is different. The restaurant is the same, the bathrooms in the bathroom scene is the same. Here is the swedish trailer:

When I saw this trailer, I was unfortunately reminded of my recent ski trip with my own husband. On the second day of Jackson trip (Diva West same week), my mother died. My DH was a real jerk to me for much of the time. Not anything related to the death of my mom, but in general. I am not planning to do another trip with him. He can create his own trip and go alone or find a group of skiers suited to his "mission".

@badger I am so so sorry about your mom's passing and the struggle with your spouse. A trip you'll remember with less than happy feelings it seems. I hope there will be more good trips with ski partners better suited to your traveling style.

Yikes. In sorry to hear that, @badger.

I read a couple reviews of the film. I had assumed it was a comic remake of a very serious movie. But apparently it's just more like…an Americanized remake.

Unfortunately, this movie is getting panned pretty much everywhere. I'm disappointed; it sounded like fun.

@badger, as you know, I was very sorry to hear about your mom during Diva West. Sorry you had difficulty with your husband, too. You know you're always welcome on the Diva trips, so be sure to join us again in the future.

Sorry to hear about your mom. And that your DH was a jerk, especially at a time like that.

@badger I am very sorry to hear about your mom. There is something about losing a mother that is uniquely painful. I am also sorry that your DH didn't get what you were going through.

I too am very sorry to hear about your mom, @badger . I am seconding everyone's sentiments on DH.

@badger I am so sorry about your mom. I lost mine last October too... and I’m throwing myself into skiing this winter to try to cope with it all. Hope it brings you the same comfort...
