Hot Dog... The Movie


Hot Dog... The Movie Review

Hot Dog... The Movie, in order to distinguish it from Hot Dog... The Snack, which you might also see on the shelf at Blockbuster. What was once a guilty pleasure is now just a terrible, terrible movie, a real disaster of a film full of lame skiing footage, atrocious attempts at bawdy humor, and half-assed sex scenes. The movie approximates a kid's-gotta-make-it story, with a midwestern kid trekking to Squaw Valley for a skiing competition, facing off against the big bad locals while getting his skis waxed, if you catch my drift. And yet it is all just simply, irrevocably awful. The acting is beyond bad, the bulk of the film is terribly dubbed, and even the snowboard settings are forgettable. It actually makes you feel sorry for Shannon Tweed. Avoid.
