Thin Ice DVD Review

Mickey Prohaska (Kinnear) is a small-time insurance agent looking for a way to jump-start his business, reunite with his estranged wife (Thompson) and escape the frigid Wisconsin weather. This self-proclaimed master of spin believes that salesmanship is about selling a story — all he needs is a sucker willing to buy it. He hits pay dirt with a lonely retired farmer (Arkin) who is sitting on something much bigger than an insurance commission. But Mickey’s attempt to con the old man spins out of control when a nosy, unstable locksmith (Crudup) with a volatile temper dramatically ups the stakes, trapping him in a spiral of danger, deceit and double-crossing.

The Thin Ice Blu-ray and DVD offers three bonus features including a behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes and a look at the Sundance premiere. The Blu-ray will feature both the theatrical and Director’s cuts of the film.


We had the opportunity to watch Thin Ice. I wanted to watch it because I`m a fan of Greg Kinnear and Alan Arkin. This film was what I expected, there were some dry humor going on along with a great storyline, both Kinnear and Arkin work pretty well together and this isn`t the first film they`ve been in together, remember Little Miss Sunshine? If you do then you'll love Thin Ice just as much as you did that film. This is probably not a film for everyone. Depending on how familiar you are with both the actors and what roles they take on, not to mention the sense of humor in this film, you have to have a certain personality for this movie. Well written, this film is going on my shelf as a must see!

Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Thin Ice at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received
