When Miami dentist Ted Brooks learns that his birth mother has passed away and that he was named in her will, he travels to Alaska to claim his inheritance. Rather than the large chunk of change that many people would expect, Ted instead receives his mother's pack of rowdy sled dogs and her property. Although the dogs seemingly have it in for Ted, he decides to keep the dogs and race them in the local race, the Arctic Challenge, spiting a mountain man who wants the dogs. What follows is a comedy detailing Ted's adventures in learning to run the sled dogs. Written by

When Ted is chased by the bear, the back of his jacket is red like the rest of it. When he is sliding through the trees on his back, you can periodically see the back of his jacket is solid black (probably a slicker material for sliding on the snow). When he rolls over onto his stomach before sliding out onto the lake, the back of his jacket is red again. See more »

Loved this movie. Great scenery, a happy story line with a bit of a moral, cute cute dogs. No wonder the younger set likes it. And the ending is an all's well that ends well with everyone happy and satisfied. Nothing wrong with that. And, so what if they didn't do more scenes with the dogs doctored up to laugh and talk. Everyone who knows "happy" huskys know they smile all the time in real life - it's part of their personality. So, who needs the fake stuff? Just those who are "not" in the know of the husky world.
