    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."

    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.

    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.
