Atom User Reviews for Downhill
Thought provoking. Dark. Not what we expected from Will Farrel and Julia LD.
If you're expecting a Will Farrell comedy, look somewhere else!
Fun movie - don’t believe critics
wasn't my taste, but guy next to me couldn't stop laughing.
Looked like from the previews that it was going to be a decent comedy. The preview was the best part. Only slightly funny during a few scenes. Very disappointing given the great cast.
If I could give -10 stars I would worst movie ever waist of money and time
Just awful Aptly named, once it began it was downhill from there. Absolutely terrible.
it was not a good movie at all a total waste of money
Very dry and slow, but very true family life as most dad's will agree
It was good.
was hoping to get a better laugh. love the cast but the movie was just going downhill
This is not a comedy. It's a slow observational drama. Low ratings and bad reviews are not deserved (probably, people are expecting Will Farrell's comedic typecasting and come away disappointed.)
It’s more of a dramedy than a comedy and that’s ok. Solid performances from both leads.
It's a movie that is neither funny enough nor dark enough so it ends up just being a depressing hour and a half of a marriage falling apart with no payoff. The ending was so unsatisfying I wonder how they decided that it was ok to leave it like that
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.
