The famed iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race begins tomorrow with a ceremonial opening in Anchorage -- despite bad weather. Good weather for sled dogs is lots of snow, and this year there isn't any. Temperatures around Anchorage have been in the high 30s. So the race has been rerouted, with the real start Monday in Fairbanks instead of Wasillla. And the 65 mushers and their dogs won't even go through iditarod.

"What's the Worst That Could Happen?" certainly doesn't live up to its title; the movie could be a lot worse. But it could - and should - have been a lot better. The raw materials are promising enough. Martin Lawrence has rung up a string of hits lately (most recently, "Big Momma's House"), and Danny DeVito always brings something to the party. Plus, the film is based on a book by Donald E. Westlake, whose work has produced such intriguing screen fare as "The Grifters." But what keeps the film from being more than an average comedy/caper/buddy film is a painfully bad and out-of-left-field ending and a distressing conflict of tones.
