Silly fun, is Chilly Dogs, it will make you laugh and the scenery is awesome, too!
15 July 2010 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Kevin (Skeet Ulrich) can't believe his good fortune. He has just learned that his grandfather left him a home and land in Alaska, allowing Kev to quit his mundane job at an LA travel agency. Heading north, things seem to go wrong right from the start, including the destruction of his luggage. When he makes it to his motel "The Moose", the proprietor, a Mr. Thornton (Leslie Nielsen) informs him of the fine print in his g-pa's will. In order to inherit, Kevin must complete the arduous Iditarod, as proof that he has the "goods" to make it in rough-and-tumble Alaska. Huh. Thus, the ex poster-hanger buys a pack of sled dogs and all the equipment and even gets some hurry-up training from beautiful Bonnie (Natasha Henstridge), for the race is about to begin. However, on the eve of the race, his equipment and dogs are stolen. Undaunted, Kev goes to the local dog pound and assembles a team of canines, from poodles to St. Bernards to boxers. And, he finds some secondhand furniture that he turns into a sled. Now Kevin realizes that someone is sabotaging his race and its Mr. Thornton! The old goat has his eyes on Kevin's land. Will Kev be able to finish the race? This film is silly but effective fun, making any sourpusses out there smile like crazy. The cast is very nice, for Ulrich, Henstridge, Nielson, Lochlyn Munro and all of the others generate many a giggle. Then, too, the scenery in Alaska is most lovely, from snow-covered mountains to pristine streams. All of the other film effects, costumes, script, direction, and camera work are worthy as well. Has this been a downer of a day? Well, even if its chilly out, head out the door to grab Chilly Dogs from the local DVD businesses or the library. Your mood will brighten almost immediately.
