If I told you that your children DESERVED this movie, you'd slap my face.

For some reason, Disney keeps making really, really crappy live-action films.

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.

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

It's official...Oscar-winning Cuba Gooding Jr.'s career has gone straight to the Dogs!

Horrible acting, horrible script, and horrible direction plague this fiasco of a movie.

Ten minutes into the movie Gooding already has screamed at least 57 times.

"Snow Dogs" doesn't offer much, but to be fair, it had the youngest viewers at my screening cheering and laughing until the end.

the type of broad, fish out of water comedy where each crossed signal is telegraphed a mile away and the lead character falls down a lot

Like shave ice without the topping, this cinematic snow cone is as innocuous as it is flavorless.

Gooding is so pleasant and likable, it's hard to get mad at him for wasting our time.

Poor Cuba Gooding. As if it were not humiliating enough to play a guy so clumsy that he can't walk in the snow without pratfalling, he also has to do jokes about being a black man in the Great White North.

Disney's latest update of the lame live-action B comedies that have been among the studio's more dubious contributions to American pop culture.
