Snow DogsDirector: Brian Levant, Cuba Gooding Jr., James Coburn, Sisqo
Two Oscar-winning actors add a family-oriented comedy to their resumes with this Disney-produced arctic adventure. Snow Dogs stars Cuba Gooding Jr. as Ted Brooks, a Florida-dwelling dentist with a successful chain of offices and a comfy, poolside lifestyle. All this changes, however, when he finds out that he was actually adopted as a child, and that his birth mother has died and left him an inheritance in her home state of Alaska, of all places. After arriving in the snow-bound clime, Ted learns that he has been willed a pack of cutely named sled dogs: Demon, Diesel, Dutchess, Nana, Mack, Scooper, Sniff, and Yodel. Problem is, the town's premiere sled-dogger, Thunder Jack (James Coburn), wants the pack for himself, and encourages Ted to go back to his tropical environs. But with a major sled-dog race looming, Ted's inspired to learn the ropes, as it were, and prove himself worthy of his birth mother's inheritance -- any way he can. Snow Dogs was directed by Jingle All the Way's Brian Levant and features some animatronic dog effects by Jim Henson's Creature Shop; the script was very loosely adapted from popular author Gary Paulsen's nonfiction book Winterdance: The Fine Madness of Running the Iditarod.

We watched it together as a family including my 4 years old and we all laugh a lot. She loves the movie and wanted to see it again. Kids may pick up on different things than adults, but had a great time too. Characters were well defined for a comedy, and story moved fast enough to keep you interested. I would recommend it for anyone who wants an easy movie with lots of jokes. Definitely good for a family to watch together.
loved the movie
The beginning of the movie has a fairly insensitive remark/reaction to adoption which left the adults sitting on the edge for the rest of the movie the first time we saw it but ultimately it is a terrific movie and both the kids and adults in my family love it.
This is a fantastic movie, totally hilarious all the way through. Fantastic for your kids and enjoyable for the adult as well. You'll definitely want to see this!
I have seen the movie more than once. I like the movie. I like the end of the movie. It is a funny movie. Haven't seen this movie yet? you should see it. I have seen it. It is the BEST movie.
This is a awesome movie!!! The best dog in the film is Demon!! I think he has the prettiest blue eyes I ever saw!! The other dogs are great to Yodel is also cute. But Demon steals the film!! I highly recommend this movie for everyone!!
I love Snow Dogs, but it wasn't until after I saw it for the 2nd time that it really grew on me. The first time I saw it, I was a little disturbed by that scene when Thunder Jack knocked Ted out to the ground after referring to Ted as " ancient history" as his own son. But, as I watched the film more and more, I realize that it was all a part of slapstick comedy, and Thunder Jack's intimidating personality, I suppose...just that this particular scene was a bit too much. The fact that Thunder Jack and Ted rescued each other later on in the film was a plus. And, once Thunder Jack explained to Ted his true involvement with Ted's deceased mother Lucy, and the fact that neither of them were ready to be parents when they decided to give Ted up for adoption...it became clear that old Thunder Jack was not so bad- deep down (and neither was Lucy). The end of the movie was quite touching. I especially liked Sisko's role as Rupert in the movie.
This is an extremely great movie.It is so funny.Don't miss Snow Dogs.
