This may be the worst movie to star two Oscar winners since the heyday of the studios when actors had no say in their projects.

It's all very cute, though not terribly funny if you're more than six years old.

Pre-packaged dog crap, a dumb movie made by dull-witted adults who clearly believe that just because some viewers currently reside at the lower end of the age spectrum, they don't deserve better.

If the restless children in the movie theatre are any indication, the movie is just as uninteresting for them as it is tiresome for the adults.

Two Oscar-winners are no match for irresistible dogs in this so-so slapstick comedy.

If you have a soft spot for man's best friend, it's a pretty good throwaway movie.

Five screenwriters are credited with the cliché-laden screenplay; it seems as if each watered down the version of the one before.

This silly youth-targeted comedy goes strictly by the book, which should give you a clue as to its quality.

Sure to test the patience of even those adults who will appreciate it simply for being an innocuous enough film that most of the family can see together.

There's little to recommend Snow Dogs, unless one considers cliched dialogue and perverse escapism a source of high hilarity.

Slapstick buffoonery can tickle many a preschooler's fancy, but when it costs a family of four about $40 to see a film in theaters, why spend money on a dog like this when you can rent a pedigree instead?

A generic family comedy unlikely to be appreciated by anyone outside the under-10 set.

The picture may be light as five inches of new powder, but it's still good for a family romp.

A film with almost as many delights for adults as there are for children and dog lovers.

Every bit as bogus as most Disney live action family movies are -- no real plot, no real conflict, no real point.

Gooding offers a desperately ingratiating performance.

A movie set in the frozen north that just idles, endlessly, in the sitcom hothouse where convention slowly but surely becomes moldy cliche.
