Movie Info

Idealistic travel agent Kevin Manley (Skeet Ulrich) quits his job and leaves the subtropical confines of his Southern Californian home when he's notified that he stands to gain an inheritance of 200 acres of Alaskan real estate from his late grandfather. There's a catch: He has to race in the Iditarod, the grueling 1,000 mile dog sled contest through the snowy Alaskan mountains. But there's another catch: A local attorney (Leslie Nielsen) knows the property is priceless and sets out to stop Manley from completing the race by having Carter, a crazed competitor (Rik Mayall), sabotage his dogs and equipment at every turn. What's worse, Bonnie (Natasha Henstridge), the lovely woman who teaches Kevin how to mush, finds out he's a Manley -- and their families are in a generations-old feud. Can Kevin and his team of mongrel mutts finish the race with so much going against them? ~ Buzz McClain, Rovimore

What's the moral of the story? Keep away from any Skeet Ulrich movie that has chills, the north or anything frozen in its title.

Audience Reviews for Kevin of the North (Chilly Dogs)

Predictable and only mildly amusing at times and it relies on a lot of physical humor to pull it through, which sometimes works, but more often doesn't. The cast is likeable but not exceptional. Nothing special.

James Higgins

Ulrich stars as Kevin Manley, a small-town travel agent who has just inherited a whole lot of money from his grandfather. But there's a catch, Kevin must complete a task. We're not talking an easy one like spending millions of dollars in a couple of days la Richard Pryor in Brewster's Millions. We're talking dog race, the dog race, the Iditarod. Of course, there has to be a no-good-nick to wreak havoc on Kevin's quest, and since it's in Alaska, which is close to the northern reaches of Canada, who else could you cast but Leslie Neilson, He plays Clive Thornton, a grizzled old man who thinks Kevin's grandfather might have been hiding something. Kevin of the North initially looks like it might have some potential with the Snow Dogs set; youngsters and warm-hearted folk who like a good, wholesome animal movie. Well, the constant fart jokes, sexual content and racial stereotypes sure wreck that one. And there are no talking dogs here just mutts and mangy mongrels straight from the pound. Slapstick ensues and the race is on, with the city type trying to make it with the big boys.
