Air Bud 2: Golden Receiver opens when Josh Frammn (Kevin Zegers) is playing basketball with Buddy. But he is late. His mom, named Jackie (Cynthia Stevenson) is taking him and his kid sister to the basketball finals.
Buddy wants to come too. But Josh doesn't let him. So Buddy sneaks into the family van. He's just a dog, he doesn't understand people.
And Buddy shows up on the basketball court and makes a basket. What I didn't mention in the review of Air Bud, is that Josh's father, a test pilot was killed in a plane crash.
School is starting soon for Josh. And I think he is entering high school. Josh's mother starts dating again. And soon her new love is the local veterinarian, named Patrick Sullivan (Gregory Harrison). Josh doesn't like this. So he tries out of the school's football team.
And makes the team. On the day of the first game, the coach named Fanelli (Robert Costanzo) is told that either the football team will be dropped, or he will be fired if the team doesn't have a winning season.
Fanelli was the school's coach for 14 years. And hasn't had a winning season in 10 years. Buddy the dog who made lots of baskets in the first movie, died after the movie wrapped up. And so the studio got another dog that looks like the first dog. If you like football, then check out Remember the Titans.
