    A Disney family film, with all that the term implies: It's playful, corny, silly, adventuresome and enjoyable.

    As for Gooding, he's sadly gone to the dogs -- Snow Dogs has got to be his most humiliating role since "Lightning Jack."
  3. Formulaic but not entirely predictable, it's like old-school Disney, but without Tim Conway.

    Harmless, if witless, stuff for the kids.

    Relies almost exclusively on the gushing exuberance of Gooding Jr., and the aw-shucks factor of his digitally expressive, face-licking canine co-stars, leaving such potentially game actors as James Coburn and M. Emmet Walsh out in the cold.
  6. As distressed as a comedy can be without qualifying as a snow emergency.
  7. 0
    The marketing weasels over at Disney deserve to have their beady little eyes gouged out with flaming icicles for the fast one they've pulled on audiences with Snow Dogs.

    A truly amazing film that sustains momentum in spite of not containing one fiber of substance.

    Snow Dogs is a sad excuse of a comedy. While that isn't nice to say in front of canines, I feel like this could get worse as I watch it. InSnow Dogs is a sad excuse of a comedy. While that isn't nice to say in front of canines, I feel like this could get worse as I watch it. In fact, when I heard that title, I was thinking it could be a family adventure type of movie, but instead you just get a stupid, childish movie that never inspired to make its dream goal. Expand
