SEATTLE — The movie Downhill was filmed at a real resort in the real Austrian Alps and required the cast to do some real skiing.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell had no qualms hitting the slopes.
But others weren't as enthusiastic about the winter sport.
Kim Holcomb chatted with the cast about their skiing skills.
HOLCOMB: "I'm embarrassed to admit based on where I live, and we are obviously surrounded by mountains, that I don't ski or snowboard.”
ZACH WOODS: “God bless you.”
HOLCOMB: “I’m terrible.”
ZOE CHAO: “Same.”
WOODS: "It's a stupid thing to do.”
HOLCOMB: “It's cold, it hurts when you fall.”
WOODS: “Let's put two long, unsupported sleds on each of our feet? I think skiing is a conspiracy by orthopedic surgeons to generate business for themselves.”
HOLCOMB: "Is there anything that you don't do, that everyone else seems to love, but it's just not for you?"
JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS: "I don't karaoke. And I don't understand karaoke.”
WILL FERRELL: “Does anyone habitually karaoke, though?”
(HOLCOMB RAISES HAND)
DREYFUS: “Get out of town. Really?"
FERRELL: "I always drive along and think, 'That song should be my karaoke song.’”
HOLCOMB: “But you never do it?”
FARRELL: “I never do it, and I never remember the song."
DREYFUS: "And do you have favorite go-to songs?”
HOLCOMB: “Bust a Move by Young MC.”
Downhill is rated R and opens in theaters February 14.
