TRIES TO BE MORE THAN IT IS unless it wants to be dumb!
If I were to crash my plane on a snow covered mountain, the last thing I would do is leave a nearly perfectly good aircraft and sleep outside in the snow. The acting was decent particularly from Patty Duke and especially the history teacher, but some of the dialogue was embarrasing. I often gauge TV disaster movies with how many times I roll my eyes. This one gets five out of five eye rolls. Its not plausible that those in charge of the search would be so monumentally rude to the concerned older sister. And its obvious that this isn't a reenactment because people can't be this dumb. To wait until days after the crash to light a signal smoke fire is beyond me. Millions of trees around them and they couldn't make smoke. Pathetic. They had a good idea to go to the top of the mountain to signal but didn't have enough sense to take turns. No more script duties for Elmer Fudd!
