That motley team of dogs!
20 March 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This comedy arrived during a recent snow storm. Right off the bat, we realized this movie was not going to break any new ground, or that it's nothing more than a funny attempt to let us spend almost two hours watching the shenanigans of this unlikely hero. Once that is out of the way, this film, directed by Bob Spiers, hit the spot.

Not only that, the famous dog race was happening at the same time Kevin, Bonnie, Carter, Clive Thornton were also going up North to Nome in the movie! There are some good moments in the film that make the viewer laugh.

Skeet Ulrich, as Kevin, makes the best he can with the material he was given to play. Natasha Henstridge, is Bonnie, a girl from a rival family that was an enemy of Kevin's pioneer grandfather. Leslie Nielsen is not as effective because his villain is not fully realized. On the other hand, Rik Mayall is a mean and ruthless Carter.

The best of the film, the Iditarod race. Kevin put together an assortment of cute dogs that turned out to be the winning team in the movie.
