Editorial Reviews

According to producer Jordan Kerner, the weather on location in Alberta, Canada, was tougher than he expected. "I've worked on cold movies before -- THE MIGHTY DUCKS movies were shot in Minnesota. But you really don't know what cold is until you're out in a snowstorm with the wind blowing 50 miles per hour and it's 30 below." The only ones having a great time, Kerner says, were the dogs!

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading trailer. May 23, 2002
If you caught the previews on TV you might have thought this was a fantasy film with talking dogs. Nope! There is a brief dream sequence with Cuba Gooding freezing and hallucinating about the dogs talking to him. The dream bit is entertaining, but the film is not a fantasy. Well, lets just say it is Hollywood's version of reality.
Cuba Gooding is his usual appealing self and James Coburn as Thunder Jack reminds us of why he was a popular star. Cuba Gooding plays a successful dentist in Florida who discovers he was adopted. His biological mother in Alaska has died and left him . . guess what? The dogs, of course. He sets off to visit Alaska and find his true self. The funniest scenes are when Cuba is learning to handle the dogs and drive a dog sled team. This is an ideal movie to watch with the kids. Mine laughed at the right places and were quiet in the right places. They gave it five stars. I am sure they will convince me to watch it with them again in a month or two. I can handle it.
There is an interactive game included on the disc that uses the remote to control a snowmobile. I had to wrestle with Sammy, my five-year-old, to get the remote back again. I won.

5.0 out of 5 stars It May be Cold, But It's Really Cool November 2, 2003
When Disney gets it right, they get it really right. Such is the case with "Snow Dogs," a funny movie with a truly all-star cast that keeps the spirit of the Disney of old while giving us modern entertainment.
Cuba Gooding, Jr. plays dentist Ted Brooks. Ted is more than just a dentist; he has a huge practice in sunny Miami, apparently quite wealthy, a true man of the city, until a summons arrives one day informing him that his mother has died. One small detail, his mother, Nichelle Nichols of the original "Star Trek" series and movies fame, had neglected to tell Ted that she was his adoptive mother. Ted's biological mother lived in the wide-spot-in-the-valley of Tolketna, Alaska. Isolated does not describe Tolketna, which appears to be reached only by helicopter or airplane, and even those must be small.
Ted's mother turns out to have been a very nice lady, with a penchant for sled dog racing. Lucky Ted, he not only inherits the bulk of his mother's possessions, he also inherits a team of potentially prize-winning sled dogs. If only Ted did not hate dogs.
In the course of discovering that small-town life is infinitely more appealing than living shoulder-to-shoulder with your neighbors, Ted also discovers a lot about himself and about life in general. He discovers his father and discovers true love in the cold and snow of mythical Tolketna. During this voyage of discovery we gain an appreciation for the beauty of the far north, lots of laughs, and several tense moments, including one where Ted Brooks and Thunder Jack Johnson (James Coburn) are hanging suspended over a cliff, hoping the sled dogs can pull them to safety.
Superb family movies seem to be hard to come by these days. This movie is excellent and a family movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Dogs are the true stars of this fun movie!!!! September 13, 2004
This film is hilarious!!! I wish I had seen this movie sooner. I laughed, and laughed, and laughed some more!!! Dr. Brooks is a dentist with a wonderful dental practice in Miami. He finds out he has to go to Alaska, and his mother has to finally reveal a secret that will turn his world upside down. He finds out he was adopted, and going to Alaska he will learn about his true birth mother, but he also finds out about his birth father. Ted finds out he inherits some snow race dogs, which he is not thrilled with. Ted HATES dogs with a passion. Well it turns out the dogs don't like him much either, and that's when the fun really begins!

As anxious as he is to return to Miami, he finds himself starting to appreciate the low key town, but he is especially drawn to Barb (Joanna Balcaso - My Baby Daddy). Ted wants to prove he hang so he tries to learn the sport, and again you get a ton of laughs as he tries to control the dogs. I'm not a dog lover, but even I could not help but fall in love with the canine stars in this film. Especially Demon and Nana. The dream sequence is quite enjoyable. James Coburn is wonderful as Thunder Jack the "father", and he keeps harassing Ted into giving him the dogs. Nichelle Nicholos was simply GORGEOUS in this film. Just stunning!!!

Some of the funnier moments in the film:

1. Teds first encounter with the dogs will leave you in tears because you will be laughing so hard.

2. Ted trying to get the dogs to Mush, and the dogs taking him on a wild, wild ride.

Please ignore the reviews that trash this film. This is a film that will leave you with that feel good feeling when it's all over!! This is a film for the whole family to sit down together and enjoy. I enjoyed this movie so much, I plan to add it to my collection. My niece would love this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie but Disney Please give us widesreen!!! April 10, 2002
By A Customer
Oh, No...Well it was bound to happen, for those of us who love widescreen, the marvellous market research folks at buena vista decided that families prefer full frame, so naturally they decided to release a movie full of sweeping vistas, wonderfull photography and a film that just aches to be shown widescreen in all its cinematic glory in....... 'full frame!'. Go figure! Trust the suits to ruin everything again!! And just when disney looked as if it was using dvd to its full advantage. They've released both full and widescreen versions in the past, but apparantly not this time. And I really wanted to give this movie a close five stars, because the movie itself is a lot of fun!!
