AIR BUD: GOLDEN RECEIVER (1998)

   

The first of many many sequels to Air Bud, this movie is about the same young boy as the first movie and his dog. This time taking on football instead of basketball. And instead of a clown who wants Air Bud for himself, we have a couple of Russian circus owners trying to kidnap Buddy. They are pretty much the slapstick comedy relief that kids like. You know, believing that a dog is on a basketball team is crazy enough, but that was far more believable than people letting a dog join a kids football team. Of course, Buddy will help them win, dogs can run faster and no one is going to full on tackle a dog. How is this fair? Well, the dog is still cute.
