Storyline

Kevin Manley, a poor Canoga Park travel agent, is dismayed that he hasn't yet accomplished anything meaningful in his life, he arranging trips for others he knows he will never go on himself. He gets to kill two birds with one stone in quitting his job to travel to Anchorage, Alaska, for the reading of his grandfather Walter Manley's will. Kevin, the sole heir, learns that he will only inherit the estate if he completes the 1,000 mile Iditarod dog sled race, which starts in two days. After finding one specific possession belonging to his grandfather, Kevin decides to attempt the race against the odds, not so much for the estate, but more just to prove to himself that he is a "Manley" worthy of his grandfather's family name. He quickly learns that someone is trying to prevent him from completing that race. His first thought as to that person is a fellow competitor Bonnie Livengood, the granddaughter of his grandfather's former business partner, the two who eventually had a falling out....

Silly fun, is Chilly Dogs, it will make you laugh and the scenery is awesome, too!
15 July 2010 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Kevin (Skeet Ulrich) can't believe his good fortune. He has just learned that his grandfather left him a home and land in Alaska, allowing Kev to quit his mundane job at an LA travel agency. Heading north, things seem to go wrong right from the start, including the destruction of his luggage. When he makes it to his motel "The Moose", the proprietor, a Mr. Thornton (Leslie Nielsen) informs him of the fine print in his g-pa's will. In order to inherit, Kevin must complete the arduous Iditarod, as proof that he has the "goods" to make it in rough-and-tumble Alaska. Huh. Thus, the ex poster-hanger buys a pack of sled dogs and all the equipment and even gets some hurry-up training from beautiful Bonnie (Natasha Henstridge), for the race is about to begin. However, on the eve of the race, his equipment and dogs are stolen. Undaunted, Kev goes to the local dog pound and assembles a team of canines, from poodles to St. Bernards to boxers. And, he finds some secondhand furniture that he turns into a sled. Now Kevin realizes that someone is sabotaging his race and its Mr. Thornton! The old goat has his eyes on Kevin's land. Will Kev be able to finish the race? This film is silly but effective fun, making any sourpusses out there smile like crazy. The cast is very nice, for Ulrich, Henstridge, Nielson, Lochlyn Munro and all of the others generate many a giggle. Then, too, the scenery in Alaska is most lovely, from snow-covered mountains to pristine streams. All of the other film effects, costumes, script, direction, and camera work are worthy as well. Has this been a downer of a day? Well, even if its chilly out, head out the door to grab Chilly Dogs from the local DVD businesses or the library. Your mood will brighten almost immediately.
