Editorial Reviews

The third film in the Air Buddies series, itself a spin-off of the Air Bud series, Space Buddies features five golden retriever puppies who have a knack for getting into mischief. While the Buddies separated at the end of Air Buddies and currently live with different families, their kid owners all go to the same school and live in the same town. When the kids take a field trip to see the launch of a real space shuttle, excitement runs high and Buddha quickly gets his brothers and sister together to sneak onto the school bus and join in the fun. The dogs get the adventure of a lifetime when they tour the shuttle at the wrong time and inadvertently get launched into space on a trip to the moon. All is not as it should be in mission control, and saboteur Mr. Finkle (Kevin Weisman) may just get the whole mission scrapped--Buddies and all. Mission control's Slats (Lochlyn Monroe), remote pilot Astro (Ali Hillis), spaceship designer Pi (Bill Fagerbakke), and his pet ferret Gravity try their best to save the shuttle and the Buddies, but the success of their mission hinges on help from crazy Russian cosmonaut Yuri (Diedrich Bader) and his cosmodog Spudnick. Voice talent includes Jason Earles as Spudnick, a Russian bull terrier with a decidedly strange accent, and Josh Flitter, Liliana Mummy, Nico Ghisi, Skyler Gisondo, and Henry Hodges as the Buddies. Bonus features include a 13-minute making of featurette that includes some history about space travel and is narrated by the Buddies, bloopers, and Alyson Stoner's "Dancing in the Moonlight" music video. An adventure story with a nice message about family and teamwork, children ages 3 to 10 will enjoy Space Buddies with its cute talking puppies and not-too-scary space travel, but those seeking believability will not be impressed. --Tami Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars The Usual Fare January 29, 2009
An unlikely story of 5 dogs who stow aboard a space shuttle, take a trip to a space station to pick up a Russian dog, land on the moon, then pilot the ship safely back to earth and their loving masters. It's what you would expect in a movie like this: action enough for older kids, comedy and cheese enough for younger ones. Clean fun.

The highest praise I can give it is that my children loved it and I wasn't bored (the first time.) Recommended for children of all ages.

These "Buddie" films are just so cute and enjoyable, family fun films with cute puppies that you can't get enough of.

Since the 1997 debut of the film "Air Bud", from that film of a talking canine has launched several "Buddie" films featuring the golden retriever puppies in "Air Buddies" and "Snow Buddies" and this time with "Space Buddies".

What happens when the puppies become stowaways in an experimental spacecraft? Expect a lot of fun and giggles for the family.


The film is presented in 1080p high definition (1:78:1). The film looks great on Blu-ray and the majority of the film is done using green screen and CGI and wirework. The CG work was done quite well for this family film.. From the space station to the aircraft and its digital screens, the film looks pretty good. Also, there is quite a bit of wirework done to emulate the puppies floating due to gravity and you don't see the wires, again, it looks pretty good.

Audio is presented in English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio and I did notice the rear channels being used quite a bit for several action-based sequences and sound effects rather effectively. I was very impressed to hear the all channels being utilized during the film because for a children's film, I really wasn't expecting it. So, needless to say I was pleased by it. Although "SPACE BUDDIES" is primarily a dialogue-based film, the film does take advantage of your system's surround sound, so that was definitely cool!


There are a few special features on this Blu-ray edition of "Space Buddies". The video quality ranges from 1080p, 1080i and 480i and are featured in Dolby Digital 2.0.

Good movie to sit down and watch with the kids. They find it to be funny now, but soon enough they'll be "too old" for kids movies...

2.0 out of 5 stars gave my 5 year old nightmares April 17, 2009
the big explosion and the fire almost burning up the Russian man kept my son up till midnight. Good for an older child, though. Nothing really crude, that I can remember, and they didn't speak as fast as in many of the Disney movies. My son hated it and I hated the nightmares he had because of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars It Was Just OK, A Few Good Laughs March 28, 2009
Space Buddies - the whole Buddies franchise, well it's fun, and it has worn out it's welcome in some ways. A thirteen year old says, yep it was an OK movie (he did laugh a number of times), but it wasn't really that good. Here's dad's take, the earlier versions were better, a bit more engaging, a bit funnier.

There's a lot less dog moving mouth and talking scenes in this one. The CG on the moon, well it's really downright bad. It actually looks like a person with a Macintosh and a couple of hours could have done much better. A ferret talks the dogs back to earth. Nothing about the film is real or believeable, but it's entertainment, so a person can suspend reality for a while.

Daumer from Coach days is the head dunderhead owner of Vision rocket company. And there's a Robert Downey Jr. wanna be that is the villan. The other characters were filler Disney characters. The kids were, as usual chez Disney, cute and smarter than the adults.

It's a pleasant, decently fun movie to watch for an hour and 20 minutes. There's no real rewatch value. Definately PG, and appropriate for just about everyone. There's a moment when the Russian space ship burns up, and it looks like the Cosmonaut (Diedrich Bader from The Drew Carey Show) will burn with it. However, he gets in an escape pod and is launched away. He also drinks some clear liquid and gets very happy. But it's also possible that was water and he was happy because of the music played and his dancing. By the way, Bader is not exactly terribly believeable as a Russian. His accent comes and goes frequently.

All in all, a pleasant movie to watch on a Saturday evening in March where huge snowflakes are unseasonally falling. Kids will enjoy this. Parents will not be annoyed by it. And everyone will get a laugh or two here and there all in a good healthy manner.

The DVD has a bloopers reel as bonus feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Space Buddies are a Hit March 2, 2009
As, and avid, and loyal fan of all the Air Bud movies, and with the Air Buddies, I think this movie is good entertainment for the whole family. It has a good cast, and the story line is very cute. I hope Disney continues to make more of the Buddies or Air Bud movies, it is good wholesome family fun to watch. With all the violence out in other movies this one brings the family back together to watch a fun, and cute movie, what family movie time should be. I recommend this to all families, and single people who love animals. An excellent movie.
