Snow Dogs 2002

When Miami dentist Ted Brooks finds out that he's been named in a will, he travels to Alaska to claim his inheritance. Once he gets there, however, his dreams turn to mush: he discovers he's been left a team of sled dogs. Not only do the dogs not warm up to him, but a crusty old mountain man named Thunder Jack feels as though the dogs rightfully belong to him.

When Ted Brooks (played by Cuba Gooding Jr.), a happy and successful dentist in sunny Miami, finds out that he is adopted, and his birth mother has just died, he flies off to her home in Alaska to learn what he can about his background. Arriving in the tiny backwoods town of Tolketna, Ted finds life at it's rawest (and coldest). It turns out that his mother was a sled dog racer, and about the only thing she left behind was a pack of mischievous sled dogs.
Rising to the occasion, Ted sets out to learn how to be a musher, somewhat aided (and somewhat hindered) by the grizzled old backwoodsman Thunder Jack (James Coburn). Braving the tricks of his own dogs, the barbs of the locals, thin ice, bears, skunks, and a host of other obstacles, Ted learns about himself, and about Thunder Jack. [Color, released in 2002, with a running time of 1 hour, 39 minutes.]
This is a very funny movie. I must admit that my kids asked for this movie, and I really had no intention of watching it. But, just being around, I found myself [pulled] into the story, and soon I was sitting with my kids laughing as loud as either of them! As for extras on the DVD, it amounted to a snowmobile game, some deleted and extended scenes, and three featurettes on the making of the movie.
OK, we weren't thrilled with the extras, but we were thrilled with the movie. It is great, and makes the purchase of the DVD well worth it. We highly recommend this movie!

I saw this under duress, well, I was trapped under a sleeping baby but I actually really enjoyed this. Its a fun, family film that has you rooting for Cuba Gooding Jnrs character and gives you a warm and fuzzy at the same time. A perfect sunday afternoon-in-with-the-kids movie.

I got this film because it looked like a comedy on the front cover and i like comedy films and yes' it was very funny not rude just a nice and funny comedy. its adout a man looking for his father but on the way meets some snow dogs. A great film for all the family. A kid who lives next door to me said he had seen funner but i think he needs to get a since of humour because i think this is great. So if you like a film with good comedy buy this.

For those who like stories which encompass the lives of humans and their friends of the animal kingdom this tale is a must.

Great fun film that is very high on the cute factor especially "Devil Dog". Maybe not the best story in the world but have certainly seen a lot worse - has a beginning, middle and end - lots of human interest and all ends tied up at end plus the cutest of dogs - what more could you want.

Recently got back from Norway where we did a husky ride so just had to get this film. Very funny and well made - but don't watch the extra bits as it destroys the illusion of a real husky pack. Definitely one to keep and watch again

I thought that this movie was absolutely fantastic and i thought that Cuba Gooding Jnr did the film justice. The special effects that were used to make the dogs talk was magnificent. My favourite part of the movie was when Cuba Gooding Jnr goes into the house and is practically held hostage by the dogs ( as they do not trust him).
The Border Collie that was used in the movie was the cutest dog i have ever seen and if there was a special animal award then i think that the collie would be favourite.
