Air Bud - Golden Receiver is a spin off movie of the very very popular Air Bud movie that came out a few years ago. Except this Bud doesn't play basketball, this golden retriever is all about the football. Though this movie seems very much like the original Air Bud the plot seems a little more feasible as trying to imagine a dog playing football seems much more doable over basketball. Otherwise the plot is really similar. Boy's father dies, boy finds stray dog, stray dog has amazing abilities to play sports, boy and dog bond and become mini home town heros with their cool sport playing skills, evil baddy comes to try to steal dog away (in this case its a set of Russian pet thieves who remind me very much of the home alone characters of my generation). All in all though much like the Home Alone franchise of my childhood you can't help to love this movie especially if you were a fan of the first. There is just something about a boy and a dog that never gets old. Plus Buddies fans everywhere will absolutely love the edition to their Buddies viewing collection.
Connor is fascinated with all dog movies so this was no exception. Though I don't think he will have any luck teaching his chihuahua's to play football especially seeing as the football is bigger than most of our dogs. heh. Included with the dvd is a pretty cool Air Bud whistle too!
