The creators of the original AIR BUD score once again with this all-new, hilarious heartwarming hit! This time out, Buddy, the hoop-shooting, hotshot canine, tackles a new sport -- football. When his teenage owner reluctantly becomes the school's new quarterback, Buddy catches the spirit and joins the team. Soon, the two find themselves leading the Timberwolves to the state championship. But victory hopes are sidelined when two sinister Russian circus owners take a bite out of everyone's plans and dognap Buddy for their star attraction. So give three cheers for Disney's AIR BUD: GOLDEN RECEIVER. Full of outrageous fun and adventure, it goes the whole nine yards for family fun.
If a pig can herd sheep, then the field is wide open for animals with unusual talents, and not just on Letterman's Late Show, either. Buddy, the golden retriever who made an unexpected hit in the initial Air Bud (1997), shows just how far you can stretch one joke over the course of two movies. Which isn't as far as the makers hoped, unfortunately. While the first film--about a performing dog who runs away from an abusive clown, befriends a lonely boy, and becomes a basketball star--had its charms, this one pushes the gag to the limit. This time, Buddy the dog learns to play football, even as he foils a plan by an international group of thieves to steal animals and start their own zoo. This is one that will hold the kids' attention while the adults do something else, at ease in the knowledge that their children are watching an innocuously entertaining movie. --Marshall Fine

Buddy is a golden retriever who likes basketball. Now, he's back in football. In the end of the movie, there's a song I love it's called "One Moment." I love that song so much. Read morePublished on Aug. 10 2002
Every bit as good as the original Air Bud. The Golden stand-ins did an excellent job for the original Buddy who crossed the Rainbow Bridge since the first film was made. Read morePublished on July 17 2002 by George Carnahan
I really liked this movie. One reason it was so good, was that the movie is about football, but it also has the whole other story with Josh's mom dating Patrick, and the circus... Read morePublished on July 30 2001 by Beth Neumann
