Overview

The action in this run-of-the-mill teen comedy in not as much on the slopes as between the sheets, or on the way to the sheets, as Harkin (Patrick Houser) picks up a hitchhiker (Tracy N. Smith) heading to a Lake Tahoe ski resort. Once there, Harkin joins up with a party-loving group of skiers led by Dan (David Naughton), a New Yorker. When the mix of young men and women are not shaking down into couples, attention focuses on the competition with the world ski champ Rudi Garmischt (John Patrick Reger) -- eventually leading to a spectacular sequence of skiing artistry down the snowy slopes, a tour-de-force that rivals scenes from the Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Hot Dog: The Movie is probably singularly responsible for leading a generation of young boys to equate skiing ability with the certainty of getting laid. Of course, anyone dimwitted enough to believe that riding alone in a gondola with a beautiful woman will encourage her to take her clothes off probably shouldn't be allowed on skis in the first place. Alternating between skiing footage, dopey comedy, and hot tub T&A, Hot Dog became the must-see movie for teens looking to fantasize both about athletic derring-do and buxom babes. The presence of Shannon Tweed, the ageless queen of erotic thrillers, in one of her few "legitimate" movies, gives the best indication of this movie's limited intentions. Although undoubtedly moronic, it's mostly harmless, and some of the ski jump trickery is fun to watch. Hot Dog achieved enough familiarity in the viewing public that it is probably still the best-known movie devoted to the slopes. Hot Dog is not to be confused with 1986's Hamburger... The Motion Picture, although the raison d'être -- showing skin -- is about the same for both.
