If you are looking for a hilarious time, you should check out Arctic Dogs.

Swifty the Arctic fox, who is the star of the movie, is bright white, which makes it easy for him to hide in the snow. However, more than anything, he wants to be seen. He thinks that he can become important if he gets a job as a Top Dog.

Three Top Dogs (who are legitimate dogs) deliver packages on heavy sleds in the Arctic. These dogs are famous to the other animals. One Top Dog, Duke, is Swifty’s idol, even though he mistakenly called him Shifty and Sifty when he was little.

Things get bad when the evil Otto Von Walrus tries to use B.A.D. Gas to melt the Arctic. Otto commands thousands of cute-yet-mean puffins to spread the gas. The puffins are the most hilarious things about the movie because they fight one another a lot. The puffins actually kidnap the Top Dogs, creating an opportunity for Swifty to deliver the packages, becoming a Top Dog (who’s actually a fox)! Swifty’s lifelong friend Jade, an engineer fox, helps Otto by sending him mechanical parts for his massive drill, although she does not know he is using the parts to do bad things.

There are funny action scenes where the characters have to dodge snowballs, shot from cannons controlled by the puffins. The ending delivers a weird twist that helps us better understand why Otto is so bad. I liked this movie a lot.
