Who me biased? Yes indeed – especially when it comes to the Air Bud movies. My miniature bull terrier Clem’s litter-mate Connie and her offspring Syl starred in Space Buddies as the wonderful Russian Spudnik.
Yes, I know – the Air Bud movies are trite and within seconds of watching, you know exactly what the plot is, but that’s why the kids LOVE them. They’re feel good, predictable and have those adorable Golden Retrievers that we just can’t get enough of.
Air Bud: World Pup as you may have guessed is about a soccer playing canine that joins his owner Josh’s team in an attempt to win the state soccer tournament. With Josh having a crush on the girls soccer coach and Buddy having a crush on Molly, this is a romantic story that’s doubly cute. Yes in each case boy gets girl and of course Buddy saves the day (hey, this is a Buddy movie – what did you expect?).
Kids will be delighted as will dog loving adults. If you’re neither – then watch something else.
