MOVIE REVIEW:Snow Dogs
Auhtor:

   

Snow Dogs is a pretty decent film but not the greatest. I seen better
movies associated with sled dogs such as Eight Below and maybe Iron
Will. I probably would have never watch his but my parents brought the
VHS film when it came out so I was forced to watch it with the family.
Years later, I decided to watch it again and see for myself it was good
as I remembered. My opinion is the same as I first saw it.

This is about some Miami dentist who inherited a pack of sled dogs. He
heads up to Alaska in order to learn what sledding is all about.

The acting is okay. The only big name actor here is Cuba Gooding Jr. I
though James Coburn was great though.

Overall, this is a decent family film. I probably will not watch this
film again for awhile. But I think kids will like this. I rate this
film 7/10.

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I may have seen a clip on TV or in the cinemas at the time of release,
and many sources informed me that this Disney film was terrible, so I
had to see if that was the case, from director Brian Levant (The
Flintstones, Jingle All the Way, Are We There Yet?). Basically Miami
dentist Ted Brooks (Cuba Gooding Jr.) has his face on hundreds of buses
in the city, and he receives a letter from Alaska informing him of the
death of his birth mother, so he was adopted by Amelia (Star Trek's
Nichelle Nichols). He has an inheritance to claim, so he travels to the
snowy Alaskan village of Tolketna where he is given a shack, and a pack
of sled dogs who aren't every keen on their new owner. Despite not
getting on with the dogs, and having a cash offer from grizzly Thunder
Jack (James Coburn, in his final screen appearance before his fatal
heart attack), Ted keeps the dogs like his mother intended. Along the
journey of trying to get the dogs on his side, he starts hanging out
with Barb (Joanna Bacalso), and it is obvious a love interest is
developing between them. When Ted hears about the up and coming Arctic
Challenge, a local race, he wants to have the dogs compete and show
Thunder Jack, who may or not be his father (but is apparently) what
they're made of. Also starring Thong Song rapper and Celebrity Big
Brother's Sisqó as Dr. Rupert Brooks, Wild Wild West's M. Emmet Walsh
as George, Graham Greene as Peter Yellowbear, Brian Doyle-Murray as
Ernie and Jean Michel Paré as Olivier and Michael Bolton. With films
like Boyz n the Hood and Jerry Maguire it is quite annoying seeing
Gooding Jr. wasting his time in films like this, Boat Trip and Norbit,
he hasn't done anything really good since Rat Race. Anyway, he and the
rest of the cast don't do much, it is up to the cute and cuddly
wolf-like husky dogs to keep the young audience happy, and some quite
dull slapstick comedy, it is pretty terrible. Adequate!

I am a little stumped at the low rating, this movie is not that bad. It
is no masterpiece in any shape and form, and I have certainly seen
better films, but I have also seen worse. Also it is entertaining
enough and has cute moments too. I do agree the story is predictable
and nothing special, the script has its weak spots and the pacing is
uneven being a little too draggy in the middle. But there is a lot to
redeem it, namely the amazing scenery captured by the lovely
cinematography. The soundtrack was a nice touch too, the direction is
good and the acting is actually above decent. Cuba Gooding Jnr is a
likable enough lead and James Coburn the great actor he was matches him
wonderfully. The really cute snow dogs steal the show though, it could
be said they are the film. Overall, definitely not a bad movie,
exceptional no, entertaining yes. 7/10 Bethany Cox
