All Critics (29) | Top Critics (9)

The original film's director, Charles Martin Smith... has been replaced by Richard Martin, who brings a family-hour blandness to every scene.

[The film is] marked by dumbfoundingly bad dialogue, cliche-driven plotting and groan-worthy predictability.

As sequels go, Air Bud: Golden Receiver is barking up the wrong tree.

Air Bud 2: Golden Receiver is a pale shadow of the entertaining 1997 family movie. It's a sequel that lacks the spirit and sweetness of the original.

Not quite as good as the original, but I love the air bud movies, just by how much fun can be take out of them. They are a fun ride to watch, and this football frenzy with a mutt is awesome!
