Air Bud Golden Receiver is another in a great series of movies by Disney. This was the second in the series. This movie is rated G for all general audiences and is 90 minutes long. In this movie, Buddy turns out to have skills beyond the basketball court. He is also a pretty good football player. This time Josh is reluctantly serving as his school's quarterback. And of course, Buddy makes it all better when he shows his talents to his owner. The pair are trying to once again lead their school to the state finals, but run into a slight snag when Buddy is kidnapped. He is kidnapped by two circus owners who are hoping to capitalize finacially by Buddy's abilities. Luckily, Buddy is saved from these horrible men and able to continue serving Josh's team as their "golden receiver."
I think this is the best in the Air Bud series. The first time we watched it, my then 5 year old daughter was almost in tears over Buddy being kidnapped. The movie really pulls the audience in and gets them involved in the movie. It is a great demonstration of friendship that I also sometimes use to show in the classroom when we seem to have rivalries going on.
