Product Description

Buddy, the sensational real-life hoop hound with 22,000 career baskets under his collar, stars in this hilarious and touching Disney comedy critics cheered as irresistible family entertainment! When Josh Framm, a 12-year-old boy, finds himself in a new city with no friends, he's too shy to try out for the basketball team. However, while practicing, he meets Buddy, a runaway golden retriever, who surprises him with his ability to score baskets. Josh and Buddy eventually make the school team, and the dog's extraordinary talents spark a media frenzy one that attracts Buddy's greedy former owner (Evening Shade s Michael Jeter), who wants to cash in on the dog's notoriety. Boy and dog must keep one step ahead of the brute while at the same time rallying their school team to the state finals! Get ready to be delighted, moved and amazed by Air Bud, a timeless Disney favorite. Bonus features include Dog U Commentary With The Buddies, the Buddies Dish About The Story That Started It All, Original Theatrical Trailer

Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This movie is a wonderful addition to our family viewing library. It is an absolutely clean, safe, and totally enjoyable movie for the entire family, even the youngest members. My grandchildren and my husband and I have had a blast watching it together and the kids ask to see it over and over again. I highly recommend this as a fine family movie!

A boy named Josh moves to a new town entitled Ferfield and does not have any friends at school or anywhere until he meets a lost dog which he names Buddy and he surprisingly discovers that this dog is a Basketball champ!I mean,imagine a dog playing Basketball!Thats pretty much the funny part about this movie!Josh is very happy that he is know friends with this amazing dog because Budddy is his one and only friend in the town so far and he has lot`s of fun playing Basketball with Buddy!I will not tell you anymore because I do not want to spoil the fun parts but I will tell you two more things!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun exciting "Boy and his Dog" adventure! July 15, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
"Air Bud" was a wonderful movie, it had plenty of action, tender moments, suspense, laughs.. everything you want in a family movie. The only reason I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 was because of the use of profanity in a couple of places. I felt that was unnecessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars a beauyiful dog movie April 19, 2000
By A Customer
Anyone who is an animal lover should see this movie. And anyone who is not an animal lover has got to love Buddy the dog. Because he is one of the most beautiful dogs I've ever seen. The movie also has great values and it is a fine christian movie. Anyone who does not agree with me that Buddy is adorable should get there head examined. I love goldens! especially Buddy and this movie is awesome!

5.0 out of 5 stars GRAND, FUNNY MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! June 24, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is a VERY good movie!!!!

I LOVE how this dog can play Basketball! It start's when a young boy named Josh and his mom and sister move to a town. Josh's dad died and Josh has been sad after. At the same time a Golden Retriever breaks free from a man who beats the dog. When the dog finds Josh the dog brings happieness back to Josh. Josh names the dog Buddy and keeps him as a friend. When Buddy soon shows Josh that he is a GREAT basketball player Josh soon enters Buddy and himself into the team. When Buddy's owner finds out what Buddy can do the man trys to get the dog back! Watch as a Golden Retriever plays Basketball and as Josh will stop at nothing to save the dog from more abuse.

Do buy Air Bud!

The acting is GREAT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Air Bud The Review July 1, 2005
The Movie that started an empire of B movies. See this movie, and you have seen all the air bud movies. But hey, its a golden retriever that can play basket ball... soccer.. football... brain surgery. These are fun and light hearted and worth it all. Mutt dog befriends moppy kid and show kid the light. If any thing, the brooding of the kids in these series gets tedious, but otherwise, its worth the price of admission.

Lucky canine actor
The dog's name was actually Buddy, as in the film. And he had to have his leg amputated, and then later died of cancer. Pretty sad :( RIP Buddy.
