Eight Below

Over the weekend, I had Tivo record the movie Eight Below. I remember being a fan of Call of the Wild as a kid (which is why I am taking that book on vacation) and I thought I might like it.

I did.

I watched it tonight and I thought it was terrific. I’m not usually a fan of Disney movies, but I really enjoyed this one. All of the actors were good (no big names, except for Jason Biggs), but the real actors of the movie were the dogs, which were outstanding. Anyone who likes dogs should see this movie.
