Air Bud
[] Buy posters from this movie
by rotten f. milk

"My brother liked it and watched it many, many times in a row."
2 stars

Air Bud is the epitome of kids films. I mean, it's cute, it's furry, and it goes "woof woof". What more could a kid ask for?

Well I mean, "what more could a kid ask for excluding Barbies or bigassed guns?"

The movie follows the new kid, Josh Framm, at a new school. See, this kid likes basketball, so he goes, "what the hey? I'll join the team." But he's such a wuss, he chickens out. But he still becomes the teams manager. And yadda yadda, he meets the dog, fun fun, yeah yeah, dog plays basketballs whee!

Well, I tell you what, if you know a kid that likes dogs, by all means, get the flick. Make sure this kid doesn't have attention deficit disorder or anything because, quite frankly, the beginning could use more dog. Otherwise, as a parent/babysitter, you'll love the underlying themes (friends are important, teamwork is good, etc.), and the cute doggy eating pudding and playing basketball.

But if you're an avid theatre goer, I don't see how you would catch yourself dead in this movie.

It ain't a makeout flick, bub.
