What movie was that...?

Out Cold

directed by the Malloys

This movie has always been a guilty pleasure, but I don’t care who knows it (just don’t tell anyone). A sauced up Casablanca fueled by gallons of booze and lowbrow comedy. Sign me up! Jason London (no, not the one from Mallrats, the one from Dazed and Confused) is Rick Rambis, snowboarder and sort of, kind of leader of a gang of idiots and slackers on Bull Mountain. When the mountain is sold to a John Majors (Lee Majors), Rambis is offered a job while Majors tries to show his buddies the door. And it turns out that one of the Majors daughters stiffed Rick on a trip to Cancun, a scar that (somehow) still stings. Included in the works is a tres funny Zach Galifianakis, a bonkers David Koechner and a host of crass sex jokes and drunken antics. Is it a classic, a landmark in the comedic tradition? Not at all, but it sure is a helluva lot of fun to watch over a case of beer. And come on, Zach Galifianakis is a genius!
