Dove Review

This is a delightful tale about talking dogs in Alaska who help make young Adam’s (Dominic Scott Kay) dreams come true to race a team in the annual dog sled race. Of course, the humans can’t hear the dogs talk but the dogs understand one another with no problem. There is a villain in the race named Jean George (John Kapelos) who cheats with devious tactics such as cutting the sled rope of a fellow racer, or by cracking a whip on another racer! The viewer will be cheering for young Adam to defeat the villain.

Dominic Scott Kay, previously interviewed by Dove, gives a fine performance as the determined young boy who also manages to show mercy to the merciless Jean George. He also demonstrates his faith in God by praying and his prayer is answered. In one humorous scene Adam poses for a picture out in the snow and says “Freeze” instead of “Cheese”! This DVD is one for the entire family, especially the kids, and we gladly award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal. The Snow Buddies are pals you can depend on!
