Out Cold is a 2001 comedy film about a group of snowboarders in Alaska. It is the first feature film by the music video directing team The Malloys. The movie presents itself as something of a parody of 1980's "ski school" movies and makes a number of references to the film Casablanca. A number of elements of the latter including plot and even some famous lines were incorporated into Out Cold.



The story covers the lives of snowboarding buddies Rick (Jason London), Luke (Zach Galifianakis), Anthony (Flex Alexander), and Pig Pen (Derek Hamilton), who are living large in their beloved hometown of Bull Mountain in Alaska. Partying hard, looking for girls, and doing just about anything to have a good time is what life on Bull Mountain is all about, but that all looks to have a quick end when town founder Papa Muntz dies, and his son Ted (Willie Garson) decides to sell the mountain to slick Colorado businessman John Majors (Lee Majors). Nobody supports his plans to turn the mountain into an "espresso-and-tofu" ski resort, and it's up to Luke, Pig Pen, Anthony, Jenny (played by A. J. Cook), Rick and the others to keep Bull Mountain yuppie-free. Once they realize John's purchase will change the town drastically, they enlist the aid of Major's beautiful, rebellious daughters, Inga (Victoria Silvstedt) and Anna (Caroline Dhavernas), to sabotage the purchase. The film also features a cameo by snowboarding professional Todd Richards as Barry the Doctor.


  • Rick Rambis is a ski area employee, the unofficial leader of his group of friends, and is one of the more normal residents of Bull Mountain. He is also the reigning "King of the Mountain", a title awarded for a downhill drinking and boarding contest. His dream is to build a lift to the top of Bull Mountain's tallest point (called Hangman's Peak), which he believes will turn Bull Mountain into one of the most popular ski areas in the country. He is also still pining over Anna, with whom he had a brief romance during a vacation to Cancun, Mexico.
  • John Majors is a slick businessman from Colorado who wants to buy Bull Mountain and turn it into a yuppie resort town, along the lines of Aspen, Colorado.
  • Jenny is an attractive, down to earth snowboarding instructor and one of the only women in town. She has a romantic interest in Rick but knows that he won't be ready to date her until he gets over Anna.
  • Luke is Rick's best friend and the older brother of Pig Pen. Luke has a habit of drinking until he passes out, which often results in him being the target of pranks by those who are still standing.
  • Pig Pen is Luke's pot smoking younger brother and possibly the stupidest man in town. Although he has a schoolboy crush on Inga, he is too clumsy and awkward to express it properly.
  • Anthony is another of Rick's friends and a pitifully bad snowboarder who never fails to crash whenever he attempts to ride.
  • Lance is the effeminate bartender of the local tavern. Despite the fact that he is clearly gay, he does not seem to realize it and even considers himself to be a macho ladies' man.
  • Anna Majors is John Majors' half-French, half-American daughter and the woman who left Rick heartbroken when she unexpectedly left him in Cancun. When she shows up at Bull Mountain, Rick's life is thrown into turmoil.
  • Inga Majors is Majors' other daughter and Anna's stepsister. Hailing from Sweden, Inga is a gorgeous, busty blonde who quickly becomes an object of lust to the men of Bull Mountain.
  • Barry is Anna's fiancee. A former snowboarder who was paralyzed after an accident at the Winter X Games, he's now a doctor and a pilot.
  • Eric Montclare is a widely-disliked senior employee of the ski area who becomes one of Majors' top lackeys when the plans to sell the resort are announced.
  • Papa Muntz is the late founder and late owner of Bull Mountain. He founded the town after winning the property in a game of poker from a bunch of drunken Eskimos.
  • Ted Muntz is Papa Muntz's only son and the current owner of Bull Mountain. He plans to sell the mountain to Majors and use the money to live out his dream of moving to the tropics.
  • Stumpy is a hard-drinking, tall-tale telling, possibly insane barfly who often makes outrageous claims about his own accomplishments (such as that he invented snowboarding). He warns Rick and the gang not to trust Majors. At one point in the film he claims to be Rick's father, although it is unclear whether he's telling the truth, joking or simply delusional.

They Haven't Quite Figured It All Out, But They're Getting A Little Warmer. (taglines)



  • [girl in bed with him farts on him] Oh, no you didn't.
  • Welcome to el Matador, Spanish for, The Matador.

Pig Pen

  • I'm gonna need a bucket, a paint brush and 10 pounds of salt. Lance. Get his pants.
  • I don't have to write a test to tell you that I take drugs.
  • Carpe the Diem. Seize The Carp.


  • Can you get an STD from a polar bear?
  • Maybe we should clarify something. When you won the race last night, that made you king of the mountain. Not king of the no-ball-pussy-losers. They already have their own king. My brother.
  • No regrets, that's my motto. Well... that and everybody Wang Chung tonight.
  • This suit is really cramping my Hardy Boys. It's no mystery.
  • Well, yeah it doesn't really allow my dice to roll and by dice I mean testicles. Speaking of testicles, let me get a beer.
  • [drunk] There you are, I've been looking for you, come inside, you look so beautiful and I wanted to see if you wanted to dance. [Anna walks up] Not you, him and his white tuxedo
  • [Pig Pen wakes up from humping a bench in his sleep] He's had a crush on that bench for years....Did you enjoy your nap?
  • You know I hate what they're doing to the mountain, but this is the best vanilla latte I have ever had. You can actually taste the vanilla beans... I don't like the coffee.
  • [punches Pig Pen] A little sensitivity here. Can't you see this is a dejected man? Now Rick, get your dejected head out of your ass. Papa Muntz wanted you to run this mountain.


  • I was there. Yeah, it was called the '80s. Ford was President, Nixon was in the White House and FDR was running this country into the ground. I was bummin' in a hole-in-a-wall town in what is now called Utah. Some fella from Colorado shows up, starts making so called "improvements", right? Before we knew what hit us, the streets are running with latte's. It got so bad that a fella that liked to, you know... smoke a little grass or drink a little ripple. Crow like a rooster, maybe challenge the mayor's son to a gentlemen's duel, was "uncouth, against God." More like bad real estate values. Stumpy had to go!
  • Did I ever tell you about the time I invented snowboarding? Ya I don't want credit for it but they keep on giving it to me...


Jenny: I seriously think it's time for you to move on and stop this broken-heart stuff.
Rick: All right. So... you wanna hook up?
Jenny: You're gonna have to try a lot harder than that, Rick.
Rick: [pause, lower] Soooo... ya still wanna hook up? [Jenny laughs]

Jenny: Are you sniffing me?
Lance: Oh man, if I was her I'd be getting with every dude on this mountain.

Luke: Rule number one. You do not talk about king of the mountain. Rule number two. There are no rules.
Anthony: Uhh...what about rule number one?
Luke: That's more of a guideline than a rule. Do NOT interrupt.

Rick: And as an added bonus you also win the contents of Eric's stolen wallet. Which are Luke...?
Luke: Two bucks, Condom, ...expiration date 1997. And a picture of his grandmoth- ...nope that's uh ...Nancy Reagan.
Rick: And most importantly, pushing, shoving and cheating are encouraged.

Luke: Let's go have a drink everybody.
Rick: Actually I have to turn in. I have to give Mr. Mays a snowboarding lesson.
Luke: Yeah I've got fag practice in the morning so I understand.

Pig Pen: Here's what I don't get alright is you met this chick and you got all freaky-deaky with her and then poof she disappeared. How's there a problem with that.
Rick: Pig Pen when I want advice about a good planet of the apes film or maybe how to get the resin out of my bong I'll come to you, okay? But I am not going to take romantic advice from someone who can't spell romantic or advice. Or bong.

Lance: Hey. Hot sluts with tits.
Rick: You don't have to do that anymore, remember?
Lance: Oh yeah. Sorry. Old habits die hard. Oh what the hell - I LOVE MEN. Who wants me?
Rick: Lance you don't have to do that either...

Rick: You're pretty good with these kids. They seem to like you.
Jenny: Well, I seem to have experience dealing with immature boys.
Rick: Ouch.

Eric Montclare: Luke, why don't you shut up before my fist makes an appointment with your ass?
Luke: Eric, do you notice you're always talking about sticking something in my ass, and that time it wasn't even a threat, technically, that was flirting.

Pig Pen: Snownook's not our home, Bull Mountain's our home.
Anthony: Well technically, it belonged to the Eskimos, but we stole it fair and square.

Stumpy: Rick! I'm your father!
Rick: Ok whatever!

Inga: Tell me where did you get these scars?
Luke: Oh lets see. Skateboard, truck accident, and a fire hydrant.
Inga: I bet each one has its own exciting story, no?
Luke: No, not really. I skateboarded off a truck into a fire hydrant.
Inga: I never met an American boy before, are you all so, wild?
Luke: Yeah, we have a saying around here, "no brains, no headache."
Inga: We have saying in Switzerland too, "no swimsuit, no tan lines."
Luke: [Looking towards the sky] [whispers] Thank you.
Luke: We have another saying around here.
Inga: Uh huh, what's that?
Luke: I don't know.

Pig Pen: [shouts] So, are you like a crippled guy?
Barry: [shouts] Naw, I'm just a really lazy guy!

Doorman: Get outta here!
Pig Pen: I'm gonna take Kung-Fu and kick your friggen ass! We'll have the party at our place... We don't need their fancy-smancy shit and their blue ropes!

[Pig Pen and Anthony run back to the door and steal the blue ropes]
