Only child devoted to pet, check. Single parent family, check. Retarded plot involving incompetent villains who need to abduct talented pet, check. Not sure where this falls into the timeline of superpowered animal movies, but it certainly hits all the buttons. Still a better basketball movie than Crossover.

I agree with jimmynmu, watch the dog play friggin' basketball and your sides will split open. I think the only thing worse than the existence of this film is the existence of two (!!) sequels. Thanks, soulless Disney machine.

Even for a children's movie the premise is retarded. It's not remotely funny. If my kids liked this piece of shit, I'd have to probably beat them with a broom.

How was this made? A proposal: 1. Someone teaches a dog to use its snout to bump basketballs into hoops. 2. Footage of said dog plays at the end of a local TV news broadcast. 3. Movie exec sees broadcast, offers owner $10,000 for use of dog in movie; fuck yeah, says owner. 4. A month later, Air Bud hits theaters.

For a film about a dog playing basketball this is not as bad as you would think. It toes the line between knowingly silly and ludicrous, and a completely serious take on E.T. with a BASKETBALL PLAYING DOG. It's a kinda cookie-cutter and bland family film, with not much in the way of performances or cinematography or anything. It's just not as silly as it could have been, and it's too boring to be outright bad. Still the best in the series by a mile though.

It'll entertain the little ones and that's about it. I'm actually surprised that it didn't start a dangerous trend of kids trying to involve their pets in sports by throwing balls at their face.
