Christmas in the Clouds ★★½ 2001 (PG)

Fun, screwball comedy set in a very upscale Native-American owned resort. The main characters all seem to bring a peculiar little twist to the story line. A writer from a prestigious travel guide publication is expected to make a surprise visit. Joe Clouds on Fire (Vlhos) has secretly been writing love letters to a pen pal, Tina (Tosca), who shows up to spy on her suitor only to be mistaken for the hotel critic. The actual critic, Stu O'Malley (Walsh), is a disheveled half-drunk grouch, and is shuffled to a small, cramped room. Very funny farce filmed in Utah's Sundance Resort. 97m/C DVD . US Sam Vlahos, M. Emmet Walsh, Graham Greene, Sheila Tousey, Rosalind Ayres, Tim Vahle, MariAna Tosca, Jonathan Joss; D: Kate Montgomery; W: Kate Montgomery; C: Steven Bernstein; M: Rita Coolidge.
