Last time we saw Buddy he was tearing things up on the basketball court as
Air Bud, and now he is back, but on the gridiron, in Air Bud: Golden Receiver.
Not to leave another sport "untackled", when Buddy's owner becomes his high
school's starting quarterback, he just can't stay off the field. Buddy gets
caught up in the football spirit and becomes the team's star wide receiver. The
pair rallies the school and lead the team to the state championship.
But all is not a Cinderella story. The Russian circus is in town, and the
unsavory owners see Buddy as their show's next centerpiece. Buddy is kidnapped
by the Russians, and the race is on to save the football seasonand more
The story is not unique, it is your basic sports team catches lightening in a
bottle and cannot be stopped except by the arch villain. But the story is well
told (as Disney always seems to do), and has a unique twist with a dog as one of
the stars. The movie will play well with kids in the 4 - 10 age range, as well
as with those who have a beloved family dog of their own.
