This is a generous rating based mostly on the fact that the dogs are pretty. The story is predictable but heartwarming. Eight dogs get left behind in Antartica, and their owner tries his hardest to get them back. The most interesting thing about the movie, to me at least, was the fact that two of the dogs were malamutes. My current crush has a part-malamute. I never thought I would be interested in a dog person, let alone a person who has a big dog. She's cool, though.
My parents also have movie reviews. My mother's rating: * She thought it was too intense. I have to say, I didn't think it was intense at all. My dad's rating: ***** He wants to own it, although my mother tells him he'll have to watch it by himself.
