Storyline

Pretty tomboy Kim Matthews, 19, used to be a champion skateboarder - but now she's stuck in a dead end job trying to support her Dad. Opportunity comes knocking in the form of a catering job in the one of the most exclusive chalets in the Alps. At first, Kim's baffled by this bizarre new world of posh people, champagne and skiing - but then she discovers snowboarding, and the chance to win some much-needed prize money at the big end-of-season competition. But before she can become a champion again, Kim's going to have to dig deep to overcome her fears. Hard enough, without the complicating factor of Jonny, her handsome - though spoken for - boss...

Trivia

The quote attributed to Kim's mother "You've got brains in your head. You've got feet in your shoes." is from Dr. Seuss' "Oh, the Places You'll Go". See more »

Goofs

Mikki says that he enters the snowboard competition every year but the competition is sponsored by Roxy. This is the female side of Quiksilver and as such their comps are only for female competitors, making it impossible for him to enter. See more »

Quotes

Georgie: Three golden rules of chalet girling. One, no friends up in the chalet. Two, you can party all you like as long as breakfast is on the table at eight. You're asleep, you pack your bags.
Kim: Friends, breakfast - check.
Georgie: Three, no sleeping with the clients. Unless they're fit. Or minted. Or hitting on you.
Kim: Basically there's only two rules.
Georgie: Basically, yeah.

Fun loving simple sports romance
8 May 2012 | by saadgkhanSee all my reviews

Chalet Girl – CATCH IT (B) Chalet girl is a story about a former skateboard champion who after a tragic death of her mother living a life in anonymity. To make more money she joins the elite posh servicing company which sends her off to Austria. The movie is really light and fun loving. There are no hardcore dramatic scenes, and in the backdrop of snowboarding we see a love story of a normal girl falling for rich guy. Felicity Jones did a fine job playing tomboy girl falling for British lad Ed Westwick. Ed Westwick, the infamous Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl was impressive, losing all that aggressive American tone. Tamsin Edgerton, Georgia King and German Lad Ken Duken have some really fun moments in the movie. Brooke Shields, Sophia Bush, Nicholas Braun and Bill Nighy are good in their respective parts. Overall, it's an enjoyable British movie for sports and romance fans.
