This sequel doesn't quite have the heart of the first Air Bud.

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 has been replaced by Richard Martin, who brings a family-hour blandness to every scene.

Although Air Bud: Golden Receiver is bit unrealistic (I know you're shocked), it does accomplish its purpose, which is to provide great fun for children.

[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.

If you're a 7-year-old, at whom the film is aimed, you'll probably have no problem with the idea of a dog being able to join a school football team. If you're a cynical old critic like me, you may feel differently.

Air Bud: Golden Receiver is not quite as much fun as the original, but for youngsters just learning to enjoy movies in the theater, its hi-jinks are fair entertainment.

Air Bud: Golden Receiver has the same strengths and weaknesses as its predecessor. But this time the strengths are weaker and the weaknesses are stronger.

In addition to good-hearted humor, Air Bud: Golden Receiver offers up moral lessons and affirmative messages.

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.

Monetary concerns have to be the only reason this lame kids sports comedy was made, because the surprise hit that spawned it wasn't exactly great cinema and didn't cry out for a sequel.
January 1, 2000
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.

Air Bud 2 only has the ability to make you laugh (occasionally), and nothing else.

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.
