This is a family film like they used to make, where the humour balances the drama, the personal tragedies are life lessons and the animals are so darn cute, by golly.

There's not much to like or dislike in this ride; it's the kind of all-season, live-action amusement that the Disney studio has been churning out for decades.

Large doses of slapstick humor and Gooding's vitality keep Snow Dogs from slipping into dull 'family entertainment.'

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

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.
Ross Brooks

Manages to please its intended audience -- children -- without placing their parents in a coma-like state.

Amiable and full of good cheer, [Gooding] warms this cold-weather comedy.

This amiable, old-fashioned family film is ... a straightforward fish-out-of-water tale with lessons for the little ones and a surprisingly earnest and moving performance from James Coburn.

It's playful, corny, silly, adventuresome and enjoyable.

Its aims are modest -- to make kids laugh as Cuba Gooding falls down a lot and to show how thrilling sled dogs are -- and it achieves them.

This is a fine example of old-fashioned Disney movie-making magic at its best.

The huskies are beautiful, the border collie is funny and the overall feeling is genial and decent.

Behind the snow games and lovable Siberian huskies (plus one sheep dog), the picture hosts a parka-wrapped dose of heart.

Frequent flurries of creative belly laughs and genuinely enthusiastic performances...keep the movie slaloming through its hackneyed elements with enjoyable ease.

A fast paced comedic race through the wilds of Alaska. Cuba Gooding Jr. and the dogs provide solid entertainment for the whole family.

Despite the usual pratfalls, a cute snow job.

Gooding is the energetic frontman, and it's hard to resist his enthusiasm, even if the filmmakers come up with nothing original in the way of slapstick sequences.
