Yes, it is a lot like Snow Dogs but i do not see Chilly Dogs as a ripoff. Chilly Dogs was released in 2001, so it may have even come before Snow Dogs and been put on the backburner simply because it was not produced by a major film studio. I could be wrong, but i find it hard to believe that this film deliberately ripped off another script at the same exact time they were both filmed.
As for the movie itself, i really liked it. There are several excellent actors portraying some very funny roles. There are several truly hilarious dialogue moments which you may not even catch in the first viewing. When i watched it the second time i noticed quite a few things i had previously been unaware of.
Bottom line...if you like Winter Comedies you'll probably like this movie.
