Storyline

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 Anna <dimenxia@yahoo.com>

Nice Movie
9 July 2002 | by ranhillSee all my reviews

A nice and pleasant comedy for children or adults to enjoy. A story of a man from sunny Miami in search of his biological past after learning he has been adopted. His search takes him out of his element and to Alaska where he meets a woman named Barb (who is THE hottest thing in Alaska...) who helps him in his quest.

On a personal note: after meeting Barb, I would have forgotten all about trying to find my parents...
