Storyline

Kevin Manley, a poor Canoga Park travel agent, is dismayed that he hasn't yet accomplished anything meaningful in his life, he arranging trips for others he knows he will never go on himself. He gets to kill two birds with one stone in quitting his job to travel to Anchorage, Alaska, for the reading of his grandfather Walter Manley's will. Kevin, the sole heir, learns that he will only inherit the estate if he completes the 1,000 mile Iditarod dog sled race, which starts in two days. After finding one specific possession belonging to his grandfather, Kevin decides to attempt the race against the odds, not so much for the estate, but more just to prove to himself that he is a "Manley" worthy of his grandfather's family name. He quickly learns that someone is trying to prevent him from completing that race. His first thought as to that person is a fellow competitor Bonnie Livengood, the granddaughter of his grandfather's former business partner, the two who eventually had a falling out....

Kevin of the North highjacked my life and took my sanity prisoner.
2 May 2004 | by ctreiSee all my reviews

I saw this movie on an airplane, and I considered walking out halfway through. The one good thing about this movie is that I now know why plane seats are equipped with vomit bags. But seriously folks, this movie was a big disappointment. Skeet Ulrich and Leslie Nielson are certainly not great actors, but they usually satisfy. This film's intentions are undoubtedly good considering the numerous Hollywood-approved family comedy standby techniques, but the quality of the acting, directing, writing, and cinematography is deplorable. In short, do not see this film. Do not purchase this movie as a gift for your kids or for your friends who have kids. Do not even rent it as a joke to laugh about with your buddies. And if, like me, you are subjected to viewing it midair, do yourself a favor and tune the headphones attached to your armrest to one of the radio stations; I recommend the best of Boz Scaggs, which I think is #4.
