These movies feature the adorable Disney Buddies. The five loveable pups -- B-Dawg, Rosebud, Bud-Dha, MudBud, and Budderball are the puppies of the famous Air Bud, and they are full of personality and ready for adventure.
Buddies with super powers -- what's not to love? Kids will get a kick out of this puppy adventure, which finds our friends the Buddies gaining some super abilities and battling an evil alien. The Buddies movies are fabulous for young dog lovers, though older kids will probably roll their eyes at the silly puppies and their antics. As a parent, I like that this Buddies movie focuses on the Buddies working together to accomplish a goal. I also think it's great that the movie highlights one kid's talent and how he works hard and sees his dream come true. Sure, it's a little unrealistic, but kids can still see that they can succeed one way or another if they do what they love and go after their goals. (NR, recommended ages 4-10)
