Critic Reviews for Air Bud 2 - Golden Receiver

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (23)

  • 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 has been replaced by Richard Martin, who brings a family-hour blandness to every scene.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.

  • Though the movie is inept in a number of key ways, what it really lacks is a lead actor who can carry his scenes with an un-doggish panache.

  • 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.

    Jan 1, 2000 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a Styrofoam-cup comedy, lightweight and disposable, but this G-rated fantasy of suburban family life is a good bet for its intended audience of 12-year-olds and younger.

    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!
