MY REVIEW

This is a fun family movie. My sons both enjoyed it and thought a dog playing football was hilarious. I always find it amazing what they can train animals to do for movies! There were some great comedic moments as well and even I found the movie pretty entertaining. This is a movie that could be played for any audience- I didn't find a single objectionable thing. Air Bud is completely kid-safe.

The bonus feature on the DVD- the sports channel play-by-play Quarterbacked by The Buddies- was especially cute. Those puppies are just adorable. Now my sons want a dog even more than they did before :). Olivia's favourite part was the sport whistle necklace... she drove us crazy with it for hours until I managed to hide it from her! But even still I am happy to recommend Air Bud: Golden Receiver.

Thanks so much to Walt Disney Home Entertainment Inc. and Click Communications for sending me a review copy of this DVD.

I have found movies that have dogs as part of the movie to be outstanding. I remember growing up watching Lassie ... a few tears were shed over the years watching this TV show. Thanks for your review. We will be renting this movie to watch with our grandson.
