'Downhill' starring Will Ferrell and Julia Louise Dreyfus.


Rated R for language and some sexual material.

What it’s about: A family experiences a traumatic event on a ski vacation.

The kid attractor factor: Not much — this is a family dramedy only in that it’s about a family. This tangles with adult ideas and complexities.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Show up for your family and how they need you to show up when they ask you to.

Violence: A perilous avalanche scene.

Language: Some swearing throughout.

Sex: References to sex among adults.

Drugs: Drinking.

Parents’ advisory: This is a dark-ish comedy for adults. It won’t appeal to kids and is a bit too mature.
