Kevin Manley is a travel salesman from LA. When handed a huge inheritance by his grandfather he travels to Alaska for the adventure he's always longed for in his life. There he meets Bonnie Livengood, who he forms a friendship with, later realising she is the arche-enemy of his grandfather. He commits himself as a competitor of the Iditarod mushing race as a condition of his inheritance and embarks on the mission of his life. Along the way he defeats fellow competitors and enemies Thornton, Carter, and Parker. Written by k wedgwood

Leslie Nielsen's typically hilarious acting absent in this one
3 March 2003 | by (WA, USA) – See all my reviews

If you're after a Nielsen comedy, don't bother. His role is a mundane supporting one and lacks his usual comedy genius. Unfortunately, the performances and plot he supports is lifeless and average. The dogs don't even contribute.
