After agreeing to watch this movie because I have a middle child who will cry on the drop of a dime, we proceeded to watch this piece of garbage. Bear in mind, I have never seen a Godfather movie, yet I now have one Air Bud under my belt. Movie wise, ridiculous! Dog meets other dog, 30 minutes later, puppies are born! Kids go to rescue missing puppies, parents are at the championship soccer game, not really worried that their kids and dog aren't there! Of course, the biggest whole of all is a high school team with high school students playing also has a dog playing, who apparently plays in every other sport in the school. Wouldn't this be in violation of a no pass no play rule since the dog doesn't go to school? Plus, a boy dog playing on the Women's national team, only I there for one kick, and is considered the leader of the team! Consider this part of the dumbing down of America!
