Thought provoking. Dark. Not what we expected from Will Farrel and Julia LD.
Fun movie - don’t believe critics
The bottom line is a plot intended to make one consider life's big issues merely reminds us it's too short to sit through movies as muddled as this.
This is not only one of those cases in which a U.S. makeover adds nothing to a memorable foreign-language film, it's the doubly dispiriting variation in which the more commercially minded overhaul relentlessly drains everything that was distinctive, edgy and original about the source.
It’s a commercially marketable prospect, sure, thanks to a committed performance from Julia-Louis Dreyfus (who also produces), but Downhill has also groomed out the subtlety from the original Swedish-language source material in some wincing stabs at cross-cultural comedy.
